Hey Eric!! Glad you found the board, the sport, and the local courses. I look forward to meeting you.
You have raised a good question. For the most part, it seems that most of the golfers in their teens are satisified with a fun, casual round with their friends and haven't given organized/competive dg much thought. We never had any teens sign up for our big organized sanctioned events.
But, we would be all for putting together something both fun AND competive for what our sport calls the "junior" divisions.
Maybe something easy and informal to start with? What suggestions to you have?
BTW, if you are carding very many 50's from the reds at Crockett ------ your game is developing nicely. We have some of our local gurus (myself included) that would be glad to show you some pointers and get in a round together.
Any of the "who is playing when and where" stuff is open to all. We admit to keeping score (and having a competive inclination) but, we always keep our outings "family friendly", fun, and casual.
If you see an old guy in a red Prius at the course (s) -- that is me. I play most of my rounds with my teenage son. Ryan is a junior in HS and has Downs Syndrome. If most fun wins --- then Ryan and I are on the winning nearly every time.
