PGA Junior League Golf
PGA Junior League Golf is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls ages 13 and under to learn and enjoy the game of golf. Much like other recreational league sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with their friends.
Each team is captained by a PGA or LPGA Professional, who serves as the coach and is at the forefront of creating a welcoming environment for all to enjoy the game. PGA Junior League Golf utilizes a popular scramble format that creates a nurturing environment for learning and development – both on and off course.
With more than 2,900 teams and 36,000 participants in 2016 – and Ambassadors like Rory McIlroy and Michelle Wie – PGA Junior League Golf has wide-ranging appeal for both youth and their parents.
13 & Under
PGA Junior League Golf is open to any child 13 & under.
The recommended minimum age is 9, however many Captains permit younger players to participate. A player cannot be 14 years of age prior to August 1st (which coincides with the end of the regular season) of the year in which he participates. For example, for the 2017 season no participant who turns 14 before August 1st, 2017 will be eligible to participate.
Boys & Girls
PGA Junior League Golf is open to both boys and girls.
Due to the program’s nurturing scramble format, all teammates can work together and contribute to winning their game, regardless of gender. Boys and girls of similar ability play and compete together in any match pairing (boy-and-girl, girl-and-girl, boy-and-boy). There are no separate divisions or tee boxes and yardages to play from.
