More than 700 junior golfers from over 40 countries will come together in Rancho Mirage Sunday in advance of the 14th Annual FCG Callaway Junior Golf Championship.

Players and their families will meet at the Westin Rancho Mirage Golf Resort and Spa Ballroom from 2-6 p.m. Sunday for a mandatory welcome party, featuring sponsors, photo booths, a DJ and gifts.

“We aim to make Rancho Mirage [the] official home of the FCG Callaway World Junior Golf Championship and every year through our qualifying series worldwide, bring the best of the best junior golfers to compete in this beautiful city,” founder and president of Future Champions Golf Chris Smeal said.

All players will receive their tournament information at Sunday’s welcome party.

According to the tournament guideline, all players will ride in golf carts, but players in the 15-18 division will ride in shared carts with no caddies.

Caddies will be mandatory for players 14 and under, but won’t be provided by FCG or golf courses.

Each division will be scored differently. The 15-18 division will be cut at 36 holes due to its large number of players and any division with five or more competitors to complete at least 36 holes will be ranked in the Junior Golf Scoreboard system.

Junior golfers will compete at 10 championship golf courses within Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert through Wednesday, starting at 7:30 a.m. Monday.
