HOWELL – The Michigan Top 50 Jr. Tour, presented by the National Golf Scholarship Association, announced its final 2007 schedule.
The West tour is comprised of 16 events at remarkable local golf courses. Registration is open to all local boys and girls between the ages of 12 and 18. The season begins at Candlestone Inn &Golf Resort in Belding and concludes at The Highlands in Grand Rapids.
The unique tournament format offers local students the opportunity to not only improve on their golf game, but also the chance to earn scholarship dollars. With a combination of GPA and accumulated golf points coming from various golf related activities, including essays, sportsmanship and participation, students have endless amounts of opportunities to raise their potential scholarship reward. Scholarship awards can be increased as student academic achievement improves.
In addition to scholarship awards, 50 golfers will play free in each tournament round. For more details, please visit

The Top 50 Jr. Tour is presented by the National Golf Scholarship Association (NGSA).
