Metropolitan Junior at Forsgate Country Club – Tour Preview

The IJGT Northeast tour will continue with the Metropolitan Junior at Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, New Jersey on March 28-29, 2015.

Hole 15 - Banks Course

The Forsgate Country Club boasts two distinctly different 18-hole championship courses. IJGT golfers will get the chance to tackle the deep, rich greens of the Banks Course during this event.

The par-71 Banks Course at Forsgate measures 6,844 yards. Juniors will enjoy the challenge of playing the “buried elephants” of the horseshoe-shaped par-3 12th hole modeled after commonly elevated short holes in Scotland.

The site of a rare feat, consecutive hole-in-ones in 2002, Forsgate is the ideal backdrop for IJGT golfers to make a little bit of history themselves. At stake are IJGT Merit Points, national rankings and AJGA performance stars for Boys (15-19) and Girls.

A handful of juniors competing in the Boys 15-19 Division have valuable experience under their belts. Scarsdale, N.Y., native Jonny Emmerman, Spring Lake, N.J., native Kellen Jordan, Westwood N.J., native Christopher Lee and New York, N.Y. native Nicholas Ng all competed in last year’s Metropolitan Junior at Forsgate Country Club, also held on the Banks course, and will look to earn a spot atop the leaderboard in this year’s event.

Also keep an eye on York, Pa., native Joe Parrini in the Boys 15-19 Division. Parrini won the only other IJGT event he’s competed in this season, the Major Championship at Outdoor Club in October.

Jack Cornforth of South Hamilton, Mass., tops the list of players to watch in the Boys 14 & Under Division as he’s looking for his second IJGT victory of the season. Cornforth won the IJGT Philly Open at Radley Run in September.
