The Central Ohio Golf Academy is pleased to announce the addition of several Junior Golf Tournaments. These events, designed to incorporate 2 day and 1 day events throughout the summer, provide an exciting and competitive arena for junior golfers looking to prepare for upcoming high school and collegiate seasons.
These events will be played at outstanding courses located throughout the central portion of Ohio, and are looking to help junior golfers gain competitive experience.
All of the 2 day events are played at the Ohio Capital Conference League Tournament sites, Sectional Tournament Sites, with Apple Valley also hosting the Division I Boys Central District Tournament.
"The COGA tour has truly benefitted the young men on my golf team because it provides a great tournament format for them to sharpen their skills against good competition. In addition, a lot of the events that they put on are held at golf courses that our team plays throughout the year in sectionals, districts, etc...so not only do the strong fields provide them with good competition, but they get to play extra rounds on these important courses that can only help them become more familiar with those sites. We have had a very positive experience with our young men playing on the COGA Tour and it is run very well."
Anthony Mampieri - Coach St. Charles - 2 time OHSAA State Champions 2009 & 2010
"I highly encourage all of our players to participate in the COGA summer tournaments. They are extremely well run, affordable and the fields are filled with outstanding players. The courses are some of the best public courses in Ohio, and they are also tremendously important because of the role they play as tournament sites during the high school golf season."
