Exemptions

Optimist Junior Golf offers a limited number of exemptions into the 2019 Optimist International Junior Golf Championships held at Doral Resort in Miami, Florida as listed below. Golfers who have earned an exemption are not required to play in an Optimist District tournament to attempt to qualify (but may do so if they choose). Golfers who are eligible for an exemption will be sent information on how to register online for the 2019 Optimist International Junior Golf Championship in early April 2019.

In order to confirm their participation in the Optimist International Junior Golf Championship, golfers who are eligible for an exemption must register and pay by June 7, 2019.
