Common problems with rankings

Rankings are meant to provide competitors with a list of multi-day high caliber events that can be used to plan a proper schedule with the proper ascendancy of tournaments. Golf Canada, as well as most Provincial Golf Associations and even some zones within each province have their own rankings. The rankings are generally more meaningful for the 16 to 18 age group, as players in this category play against each other on a more regular basis. You should not view the rankings with the intent to chase points and play in every tournament listed, but to play in events that are appropriate to your child’s development stage. National and Provincial Associations view the rankings as only one important factor when looking at the long-term development of your child.
