The best high school golfers in the area will converge at the Williamsburg National Golf Course beginning Monday.

“You got 13 teams in the region and this is the first year of the new region so we decided to have a two-day region tournament,” said Kenny Edwards, athletic director at Jamestown High School.

The 4A Region tournament will take place Monday and Tuesday and will have a PGA tournament feel, according to Edwards.

After day one, the top four teams will advance and the top 12 individual golfers not on those top four teams will advance as well.

Edwards said the best competition will be early on.

“The very best players will tee off first,” Edwards said. Tee times start at 9 a.m. both days.

The tournament will be par 72 and is divided into 15 groups.

Participating schools include Denbigh, Great Bridge, Grafton, Smithfield, Jamestown, Warhill, Churchland, Lafayette, King’s Fork, Deep Creek, Lake Taylor and Wilson.

“You’re going to see some great high school golfers and some great high school teams,” Edwards said. “A lot of the kids already know each other from junior tournaments so it’s a very friendly environment. You’re going to see some of the very best golfers in the state of Virginia.”
