Each Junior that registers for the 2023 Birdie Club will receive a Birdie Club Long-Sleeve T-shirt! In addition, juniors will have the opportunity to win the following prizes throughout the season as they raise money for the Northern Ohio PGA Section Foundation:
The Birdie Club is a player performance-based fund drive to get Junior Tour members involved in community outreach. This will help juniors gain a greater sense of pride and accomplishment beyond their performance during Junior Tour events. The Birdie Club supports the Northern Ohio PGA Section Foundation and its initiatives including providing college scholarships to high school seniors, financial assistance to junior tour players, grants to local charities, and providing golf clubs to children financially in need.
Juniors will ask family, friends, and neighbors for pledges throughout the junior tour season. Donors may pledge a dollar amount per birdie or per par or simply donate a flat donation towards your goal.
It is free to sign up and upon signing up the junior will receive a Birdie Club t-shirt as well as marketing materials to start raising money! Besides feeling good about helping your community, perhaps the best part about this program is the ability to put the Birdie Club on your college applications!
The winner of the 2023 Birdie Club is who raises the most amount of money, no matter how many birdies are scored throughout the entire season.
Are you afraid that you won't make many birdies? Donors can make flat donations too! The 2023 Birdie Club will begin at Old Avalon on April 29th and continue through the 35th Junior Tour Championship in July. Below are the prizes that juniors can earn for raising money:
-$100: AM&E Driver Headcover with the NOPGA Foundation Logo
-$250: Cleveland-Srixon Backpack with NOPGA Logo
-$500: Sun Mountain Golf Bag with NOPGA Foundation logo and Junior's Name
-Grand Prize: Custom FootJoy Rain Suit
After the 2023 junior tour season is complete, birdies are totaled and donors' credit cards will be charged. After all donations have been collected, a winner will be named.
