Two Village of Oak Creek golf courses have revived a youth golf tournament that had been dormant for several years.

Keegan Webster, of Sedona, hits an approach shot toward the green during the Sedona Junior Golf Championship on July 12 (left). Webster captured the first place trophy in the 15- to 17-year-old boys division with a rain-shortened 15 hole total of 67. The Sedona Junior Golf Championship went off with nary a hitch nor a slice on July 12, and the success of the event bodes well for its future.

The golfers were divided into two groups, with the 8- to 12-year-olds competing at Canyon Mesa Country Club, and the 13- to 17-year-olds competing at Sedona Golf Resort.

Sedona Red Rock High School sophomore Keegan Webster took home the trophy for first place in the 15- to 17-year-old boys category, shooting a 67 in a rainshortened 15 hole round to win by one stroke over Seth Farmer.

“I was hitting my driver really well, and my iron shots were feeling pretty good,” Webster said. “I was making good contact.”

The Sedona Golf Resort, Webster said, is his favorite golf course — not only because he’s had success there, including with the high school’s golf team, but because he has taken lessons there for more than a year.

“Gary [Pearce] has helped me tremendously,” Webster said. “I remember when I first started I was shooting about 100, and [July 16] I shot 76, which was my best round.”

Olivia Webster won the 13- to 14-year-old girls division, shooting a 103, and Hunter Thomas won the 13- to 14-year-old boys division with an 83.
