North Platte, NE- The North Platte Chamber Ambassadors are pleased to host the Junior Ambassador Golf Classic.   On Tuesday and Wednesday July 30-31, the 2024 Junior Ambassador Classic Two Day Golf Tournament will take place at our local Rivers Edge and Lake Maloney Golf Courses.  Many junior golf entrants ages 7 to 18, from around the state, will participate in one of the most prominent junior golf tournaments in Nebraska.  

The North Platte Chamber Ambassadors include the infamous “Junior Slugfest” and BBQ on the evening of July 30th at Rivers Edge Golf Club.    Junior Golfers are randomly grouped into Scramble teams that compete in a Sudden Death scramble playoff for trophies.    This event is unique to this youth tournament and has become a very popular feature of this event.   This event is designed to help install courage and confidence in players who are new to competitive golf and introduce youth golfers to other players.

The Tournament Schedule: 

Day 1: July 30th, play will start at Rivers Edge Golf Club 9:00am – 4:30pm. 

Slugfest: July 30th, Rivers Edge Golf Club 6:00pm-8:00pm

Big Trophies will be awarded for the top performers in all flights and divisions for the two-day tournament.  The trophy presentations will be held at the end of play on July 31st at Lake Maloney Golf Club from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.    If media members would like a text message for the exact time of the trophy presentation, please email [email protected].
