A letter from our founder…

Ari Flaisher

To golfers and their families nationwide,

I am pleased to introduce WE ARE THE FIFTY or as our team likes to call it, WAT50!

WAT50 is a new tournament experience where state champions from around the country and their families will come together at an amazing golf resort and destination on the Atlantic Ocean.  For the first time ever, America’s amazing young players will have an opportunity to meet their peer champions at a single event. In 2021 we launch WAT50 with a Junior Girls and Boys Individual and Team Championship at Hammock Beach Resort by planning a fun weekend long celebration filled with experiences, entertainment, and a national competition.

Our mission is simply stated: WAT50 will promote state level golf and help grow our game by driving participation from the ground up. Each year over 6,600 young golfers play in America’s 50 state junior golf championships for boys and girls. That 6,600 number is the bar we plan to exceed and we are confident that WAT50 can make a positive impact. We are energized by this mission and the work that goes into building something new and unique.

There are few if any playing opportunities out there like WAT50, one that will broaden and deepen relationships through shared competitive golf experiences with state champions from every state. State champions have never before had the chance to meet and share their love of competition can now do so with this new platform being built for them and the generations of junior golfers who will come after them!

“WE ARE THE FIFTY” is a shout-out to any and all state junior champions to come and join us!
