PGA Junior League Golf

3-Time National Championship Qualifier 
(2016, 2017, 2018)

  

PGA Juinor League

Overview

PGA Junior League Golf (PGA JLG) is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls, ages 13 and under, to learn and enjoy the game of golf from PGA and LPGA Professionals. Like many other recreational youth sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with friends. PGA JLG features team vs. team competitions in structured leagues that provide a popular, less stressful scramble format as opposed to stroke-play competition.

Team Captains have the discretion to allow skilled younger players to play up on the team (the recommended age range is 9-13 though some 7 and 8 year olds play up if able). A player cannot be 14 years of age prior to August 1, 2019.

I believe PGA Junior League Golf is a big part of the future of golf.

Is my junior ready for team golf or is this too easy?

By: Mitchell Smith, PGA

When somebody new to golf first starts out they wonder, “How am I supposed to hold the club? Why do I keep swinging and missing this little white ball? This could not be more embarrassing!”

Golf for anybody is a difficult sport; even the best of the best struggle with controlling their game. However playing as a team can ease these initial frustrations. For the golfer who has barely been on the course the idea of now having a partner to help with those long shots makes the game much easier. Now the beginner also won’t be stuck in the bunker hitting shot after shot not being able to get out. Now with that partner even the shots that seem impossible are accomplishable. After a while that golfer who “just started” will be amazed to see his or her own game improve from learning from a better player without even realizing it, and becoming a more important part of the “team” through more experience and play.

So is a program like PGA JLG only meant for beginners? The quick and simple answer to this question is NO. Golfers at every level can learn something new and can learn from each other every day. Experienced players can learn to be leaders and mentors, and can take risks with their shots knowing that their teammates will back them up with their own emerging talents – they can “go for the green” without fear and try the “low percentage” shots in competition.

If you are a parent looking for a great opportunity for your child to experience golf this summer in a fun, recreational, team format, check out the pgajrleaguegolf.com website to locate a team near you (look under the “Find Facility” tab). No need to ask, “Is my 9 year old really ready or is my 13 year old too advanced for this” - the answer is that no matter where your son or daughter might be with their game, he or she will have fun and grow with a PGA Junior League Golf summer experience. Many Birdies!

The PGA Jr. League is a great way to get kids involved in the game of golf!!
