The Indian River Golf Foundation Players Club is pleased to announce the formation of a “select” group of players from 5th through 12th grades representing the Indian River County as Travel Golf Teams. Competitions will include intra-squad matches and matches between other communities and counties….including the Junior Cup Matches vs. Savannah, GA, Tampa, FL and West Palm Beach, FL. The Indian River Travel Team will feature a Boys Team and a Girls Team. Mark Cammarene, Director of Golf at The Club at Pointe West will serve as the PGA Golf Professional/Coach for both Boys and Girls Travel Golf Teams.
Criteria for the Travel Team are based upon statistical data accumulated from four primary sources:
- Scoring averages in recognized regional and local golf tournaments/tours
- Scoring averages in high school (Fall) and middle school (Spring) competitions
- Travel Team qualifying scores
- Golf Skills Evaluations (Short Game and Full Swing Skills)
The number of players competing in matches will vary from one event to another based upon the availability of players from other communities. Members of the Indian River Golf Travel Teams will assist in the growth of the game by serving as Volunteer Group Leaders at junior golf camps and “Future Players” Skills Competitions conducted by the Indian River Golf Foundation. Community Service points for scholarships will be awarded.
