WSGA Tournament News and Results
Girls and Boys Junior Americas Cup for 2020 have been cancelled.
Dear GJAC Participants,
It is with deep regret that we inform you that the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Girls Junior Americas Cup in Boise, Idaho. Over the past several weeks, the GJAC Executive Committee and Idaho Golf Association have been closely monitoring the developments related to COVID-19 both domestically and internationally. The uncertainty on travel restrictions, social-distancing guidelines and of course prioritizing the health and safety of the participants, captains, volunteers and IGA staff has lead us to this unfortunate decision.
We are comforted to know that the Idaho Golf Association will be able to host the event in 2021.
We are heartbroken for the girls who will miss the opportunity to play in the event this year. Please know that our thoughts are with each of you and your organizations during this challenging time. We eagerly look forward to seeing you all in 2021 in Boise!!
Stay Healthy & Safe!
Junior America’s Cup Participants,
Unfortunately the Junior America’s Cup Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Junior America’s Cup, in Reno, Nevada at Genoa Lakes Golf Club. After closely monitoring the COVID-19 developments, ultimately the travel restrictions, and the priority of the safety and health of all involved, including the players, captains, volunteers and host committee, we feel the best decision is to cancel the event this year.
With the 2021 dates and site secured and a lot of preparation already underway, next year the championship will be played at the Powder Horn Golf Club, in Sheridan Wyoming, hosted by the Wyoming State Golf Association, July 25-29, 2021.
We look forward to seeing everyone next summer, and wish you a successful summer season, during these difficult times.
