PGA JUNIOR LEAGUE (Ages 9-13):
The PGA Junior League is an organized team sport, much like baseball’s Little League, except boys and girls play together. It’s fun, social and designed for kids of all abilities.
Just like other recreational team sports, the kids wear numbered jerseys and compete as a team in home and away games. A PGA golf professional serves as the captain and coach of each team. Parents can also help out as assistant coaches.
How Junior League Works
The season runs for 5-6 weeks (June-August) and includes practices and structured matches against other teams. A “game” consists of four 9-hole matches in a popular two-person scramble format, which reinforces the team concept and creates a low-stress, nurturing environment for learning golf. Coaches can substitute players every three holes, so all team members get to participate.
Postseason play begins in August. Ten-player all-star teams are assembled from around the league based on the final standings. These all-star teams compete in sub-regional and regional championships for a chance to go to the PGA Junior League Golf Championship.
Parents, grandparents, family, friends and other spectators are encouraged to come watch the matches!
