The Kraft Nabisco Champions and the SCGA are again teaming up to bring junior female golfers to the LPGA major championship to play with some of the legends of women’s golf and maybe earn a spot in the field.
On April 2, two days before the major champions will be played at the Dinah Shore Tournament Course at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, the Kraft Nabisco Legends Junior Challenge be played. The low junior in the event will earn a sponsor’s invitation into Kraft Nabisco Championship.
“We are thrilled to once again partner with the Kraft Nabisco Championship and provide Southland girls with this kind of unique opportunity,” said SCGA Youth on Course Executive Director Kevin Gigax. “We heard such great feedback from both the juniors and legends after last year’s event. Once again the Junior Challenge will showcase the best junior girls in Southern California, provide legends the opportunity to share the game and its values with the younger generation and inspire girls to continue to pursue their dreams in golf.”
