The Junior Order of Merit (JOOM) is a year long competition design to help our age group players compete in chosen events in the Golf Otago calendar. Players receive points on where they are placed in tournaments, which then count towards their final tally at the end of the year. At the conclusion of the JOOM the top placed players will receive funding to go towards future golfing endeavors.
There are two age groups in the Junior Order of Merit, Under 19 and Under 16. These will be run as separate competitions through out the year. U16 players will automatically qualify for the U19 section and points will be given accordingly for where they are placed.
