The 2018 Long Island Sound Summer Tour, a junior-golf tournament program presented by U.S. Kids Golf, will hold its first of eight events next month at The Vineyards Golf Club in Riverhead. Registration for the tour is open to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 14.
U.S. Kids Golf Local Tours give junior players the opportunity to build their skills in age-appropriate competitions on courses located close to home. The Long Island Sound Summer Tour consists of eight single-day tournaments on Long Island, New York City and Connecticut golf courses. Participants can enter as many events within the tour as they'd like, and are encouraged by U.S. Kids Golf to have caddies, preferably a family member.
Four of the eight Sound Tour events will take place on Long Island and Queens courses, including the opener at The Vineyards on Tuesday, July 10, as well as the Tour Championship on Monday, August 20 at Pine Ridge Golf Club in Coram. In between, the Tour stops at Timber Point Golf Course in Great River on Wednesday, July 18 and Forest Park Golf Course (Queens) on Wednesday, August 15. The other four events are scheduled at courses in Westchester, Putnam County and southwestern Connecticut.
Registration is $51 per 18-hole event, and slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Players can sign up until three days prior to each event. For full schedule information and a description of U.S. Kids Golf's local tours, visit the Long Island Sound Tour page.
