The Veritas World Junior Golf Tournament and Festival is set to be held from July 20 to 27, 2013 in Southern California in USA, stated a release. The tournament is aimed at junior golfers between the age group of 6 to 18 years. The last date for registration is June 30. The registration fee is USD 370 USD for players of nine years and above and USD 280 for players in the age group of six to eight years. The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) has designated Veritas as the AAU Junior Olympics of Golf.

The Veritas World Junior golf tournament is open to experienced junior golf tournament athletes in individual age divisions. The older division of the game will take place at Tustin Ranch Golf Club in Orange County while the younger players will play at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena. The tournament’s opening ceremony is planned to be held at Angels Major League Baseball Stadium and medal giving ceremony has been scheduled to take place at Downtown Disney.

The event offers junior golfers worldwide the opportunity to build friendships and network with other athletes in a major Junior Golf Championship format.“The Veritas World Junior, the PGA, the AAU and I have a similar goal and special interest of 'Growing the Game of Golf with the Youth of the World'. I am proud to join the Veritas World Junior Advisory Board and look forward to providing the young golfers an opportunity to reach their personal golf goals in a game they can enjoy the rest of their life," said Hal Yost, PGA Life Member and National Chair, AAU.

“Getting more international kids networking through global Junior Golf competitions has immense potential to create global value and more societal understanding. Junior golfers are the future leaders in business, community, religious and governmental segments, and with their sound ethics and clear thinking we all benefit greatly. Possessing an athletic skill is invaluable for their health and well-being,” said Robert Brown, President, Veritas World Junior.

At last year’s inaugural event, Veritas attracted youth and junior golfers and their families from 18 different countries, including large delegations from China, Mexico, Colombia, the Philippines, the Caribbean region and several countries in Europe.
