Due to the COVID-19 outbreak there have been changes to the qualification system. With the uncertainty of the Local Qualifiers in April, May and June, we have made the difficult decision to re-format the Series and everyone that is registered will move directly to the Regionals. The qualification system will now include 20 Regional Qualifiers spread across the United States and Canada starting late this summer. Each 36-hole Regional will guarantee spots from each division and qualify them to the National Championship November 15th, 16th & 17th at Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, Louisiana on the world-class Koasati Pines Championship Golf Course. These 36-hole Regional fields will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Rainouts & Inclement Weather
The Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship will make every effort to complete all events. In the event that there is severe weather or lightning in the area, the players will hear one long air horn blast from the golf course or tournament committee which will mean the players must evacuate the golf course. Players are instructed to mark their golf ball where it lies and seek shelter immediately. If an event is shortened due to weather, there will be no refunds.
In the event that an event is cancelled due to inclement weather, the tournament staff will make every effort to post scores for that day. 9-hole/18-hole scores will be posted for shortened rounds in local and regional qualifiers respectively. An entire age division must complete the same 9 or 18 holes for the scores to post for that day otherwise no scores will be posted. If day one is cancelled and no divisions are able to post any scores, the event will be shortened to an 18-hole event (Regionals ONLY). If the golf course has available tee times the following day, the committee has the authority to schedule the event the following day. If the next day is not available the committee will do its best to reschedule the qualifier within the next 7 days of the original date.
In the event that no golf is played, the committee will issue a refund (minus an administrative fee of $50).
Due to the 2020 Junior Golf Scoreboard policies and the rise in the number of withdrawals in junior golf, we have instituted the following withdrawal policy. Once the player has decided to withdrawal, he or she must report to the tournament committee on site.
