AJGA Golf Tournament

Three Maine Golfers to compete in AJGA Coca-Cola Championship at Sugarloaf, August 23-26

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, ME – For the ninth consecutive year, some of the nation’s top junior golfers have gathered at the Sugarloaf Golf Club to compete in the 2021 American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Coca-Cola Junior Championship, August 23-26. Among this year’s field of athletes are three players from Maine – Matthew Nolder from Berwick; Elliot Spaulding from Freeport; and Ruth Weeks from Cumberland.

Players will get a first look at the course this afternoon during the sanctioned practice round, with the first round of competition kicking off on Tuesday, at 7:00am.

The AJGA Coca-Cola Junior Championship is a 54-hole stroke play event, spanning four days with three rounds of competitive play – during which time the course will be closed to the public.

“Each year I am blown away by the caliber, commitment, and passion these young players have for the sport,” Zach Zondlo, Sugarloaf Head Golf Professional said. “We’re excited to once again these junior golfers and their families to Sugarloaf, and look forward to the next three days of competition.”

The AJGA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf. Many of the top golfers on the PGA and LPGA are former AJGA members, including Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, Davis Love III, and many others.
