The 48th Annual Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships for boys and girls ages 3-18 will once again be held on two golf courses in Quincy, IL, June 21-23, 2021.

Pepsi Little People’s is an international event for boys and girls ages 3 through 18. During the past 47 years, players have come from every state and some 38 countries. It has been sponsored since its inception in 1974 by Refreshment Services Pepsi.

Players ages 3-7 will play their two tournament rounds at the KC Par-3 Golf Course, while golfers ages 8-18 will play their two competitive rounds at Westview Golf Course.

Pepsi Little People’s offers all players an opportunity to qualify for or gain points for various other major junior golf tournaments, such as the IMG Junior World, Future Champions Golf and PLAY Junior Golf Tour of Canada. Players also gain rankings from Junior Golf Scoreboard, Sagarin, and Global Junior Golf Rankings – so important to their future college resumes.

Play is in seven age divisions for boys and seven age divisions for girls (3-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15 and 16-18).

Trophies are awarded to the top three finishers in each division, with medals going to places 4-6 in the 10-18 age divisions. All non-trophy winners ages 3 through 9 receive participant medals.
Tournament events start on Sunday, June 20, with the annual Applebee’s Parent-Child tournament, an optional 9-hole alternate shot event featuring one adult or sibling and one Little People’s participant.

Monday, June 21, is practice round day for all participants and includes the Applebee’s Closest to the Pin contest on the 9th hole at Westview. The winner receives a $75 gift certificate from the Westview Pro Shop. It is followed by the annual Family Celebration Picnic for all participants, families, friends and sponsors, on the KC grounds.

Competition in all divisions is held on Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by prize presentations on Wednesday for each age group.

The annual Pepsi Little People’s is an opportunity for players to gain competitive experience, and for players and their families to reacquaint with old friends and make new friends.
