To recognize the achievements of the local golfers throughout the summer, the DAJT hosts an end of the year banquet. At the banquet course pros announce top 3 overall point standings and scholarship winners.
The points are awarded by what place you got in the event. To generate your overall points, your top six scores are added up, so if you play in all seven events, the lowest amount of points received during the summer will be discarded. These points help determine who will play in the Fidelity Bank and Trust Ryder Cup event. The top 4 point getters will receive an invite to play.

Last year the DAJT decided to award two scholarships worth $1000 to one female golfer and one male golfer who have played in at least one DAJT event and show signs of great character. Last year Breanna Felderman was our only winner, so this year the DAJT board of directors decided to use that extra $1000 from last year and create two more scholarships worth $500, again going to one male and female golfer.
This year's $500 scholarship winners are Ben Vaassen and Hannah Fangmann. This year’s $1000 scholarship winners are Maddie Streicher and Sean Hinerichsen.
Thank you to all of the DAJT sponsors, golf pros, and volunteers we had on the course this year and thank you to all the players, parents, and other supporters! Hope to see you all next year!
