Many of the titles in the different age groups are up for grabs, and playing well and scoring valuable points could be the difference in the final standings. After Monday's tournament at Highlands Ridge North, the next Sertoma junior Golf Tour event is at Placid Lakes Country Club on Thursday. The summer season wraps up with Sertoma Junior Golf Tour Championship at Sun 'n Lake Golf Club Aug. 16-17. The two-day Tour Championship event is worth double points and after the final round, a banquet and awards ceremony will be held in the Island View Restaurant. Each of the age group winners will have trophies presented to them after the banquet and a male and female golfer of the year will be selected. The awards ceremony is run by Sertoma Junior Golf Tour Director Andy Kesling, who is also a professional at Sun 'n Lake Golf Club.
