The East Missouri Optimist District Junior Golf Tournament originally scheduled for Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at Ste. Genevieve Golf Club, has been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak. It has been announced that the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships to be held at Trump National Doral Golf Club in Miami in July have been canceled, so there would be no place for the golfers to advance to. This follows the announcement by Optimist International President Adrian Elcock.
We are confident that the tournament will return next year.
