Exemptions

Optimist Junior Golf offers a limited number of exemptions into the 2018 Optimist International Junior Golf Championships 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 2018 Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in early April 2018.
