For more than half a century, the Junior Tyson Tour has provided junior golfers in Southwestern Ontario with an opportunity to compete in a tournament setting, while learning life's lessons through golf. We very much welcome the kind provision of partial golf scholarships of $500 for our top male golfer and $500 for our top female golfer to attend the Golf & Club Management Program at Fanshawe College. And with the program also providing all of our winners with prizes at the Tyson Tour invitational championship at Sunningdale Golf and Country Club, it's just another example of how the local community has strongly supported the Tyson Tour for more than 50 years.

Pee Wee Division Returns for 2019

The tour is excited to announce the continuation of a "Pee Wee" division (9-holes only) for boys and girls ages 7 - 11. The idea behind this new category is to introduce novice players to tournament golf. The target group for this "3" event series are young golfers that may not be ready for the full 18-hole "big" golf courses. Unlike the regular tour format, there will not be any "points" awarded. The focus for these tournaments is to have fun in a stress free environment.

The cost for each event will be $20, which includes golf, a welcome gift, minimal prizing, and a hot dog and drink upon completion of play.

We are reaching out to parents/guardians asking for volunteers for these three days. The hope is to have one adult walk around with each group to help with proper scoring and on-course etiquette.

Our mandate is to simply grow the game of golf and make it accessible for youngsters in the London and surrounding area. If you or someone you know is interested in lending a hand, please contact the Thames Valley Golf Course at 519-661-4440.

Again this season, (est. 2004) is supporting the Junior Tyson Tour with photographs. Staff will be on hand at both Thames Valley Golf Club, and Fanshawe Golf Club during the 2018 Les Thomas Memorial Tournament, and at the season-ending 2018 championship invitational at Sunningdale Golf and Country Club. will be taking photos of the winners, as well as publishing stories on the events.
