The 49th Annual Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships will be played June 20-22, at two Quincy, Illinois, golf courses.
Pepsi Little People’s is an international event for boys and girls ages 3 through 18. During the past 48 years, players have come from every state and some 38 countries. It has been sponsored since its inception in 1974 by Refreshment Services Pepsi.
Players ages 3-7 will play their two tournament rounds at the KC Par-3 Golf Course, while golfers ages 8-18 will play their two competitive rounds at the 27-hole Westview Golf Course.
Pepsi Little People’s offers all players an opportunity to qualify for or gain points for many other major junior golf tournaments, such as the IMG Junior World, Future Champions Golf, Notah Begay Regional National Championship and PLAY Junior Golf Tour of Canada. Players also gain rankings from Junior Golf Scoreboard, Sagarin, and Global Junior Golf Rankings – so important to their future college resumes.
Play is in seven age divisions for boys and seven age divisions for girls (3-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15 and 16-18).
Trophies are awarded to the top three finishers in each division, with medals going to places 4-6 in the 10-18 age divisions. All non-trophy winners ages 3 through 9 receive participant medals.
Tournament events start on Sunday, June 19, with the annual Applebee’s Parent-Child tournament, an optional 9-hole alternate shot event featuring one adult or sibling and one Little People’s participant.
Monday, June 20, is practice round day for all participants and includes the Applebee’s Closest to the Pin contest on the 9th hole at Westview. The winner receives a $75 gift certificate from the Westview Pro Shop. It is followed by the annual Family Celebration Picnic, sponsored by Pepsi, Hy-Vee, WGEM and See Quincy, for all participants, families, friends and sponsors, on the KC grounds.
Competition in all divisions is held on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 21-22, immediately followed by prize presentations for each age group on Wednesday.
The annual Pepsi Little People’s is an opportunity for players to gain competitive experience, gain entrance into other major junior events, be nationally ranked, and for player and families to reacquaint with old friends and make new friends.
