Junior Golf Season Ready to Begin

Sun Staff Reports

Alameda Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and Youth on Course is busy getting ready for the 2021 junior golf season. AJGA boardmember and volunteer Lynn Perata is giving out applications to perspective junior golfers. Perata is following all COVID-19 rules and protocols, wearing a mask and using tongs for hands-free delivery. Perata recently gave an application to 11-yearold future junior golfer Devon Shimabukuro (left).

Many AJGA alums have gone on to compete at the NCAA level. AJGA alum Josh McCarthy’s Pepperdine University men’s golf team team placed fifth in the Southwestern Invitational Jan 25 to 27. The team finished with a combined 24-over par 888 in the three-round tournament that took place in Westlake Village, Calif.
