PGA Jr. League exists to bring communities together through fun, team golf experiences, plus those experiences that transcend golf itself, like friendships that last for years to come or a newfound sense of confidence.
PGA Professionals are offering the program for boys and girls ages 9-13. Each of the facilities will field a team up to 14 members. Each courses' team will compete against other area and regional PGA Jr. League teams. No prior golf experience is required to participate.
Teams play four, nine-hole matches in a two-person scramble format for competition, reinforcing the team concept and creating a nurturing environment for learning the game. Team captains can substitute players every three holes, so that all of the golfers on each team can participate.
Registration cost is $225, which includes team jerseys, practices, lessons, and matches.
To register for the teams, visit the PGA Junior League website, click "Sign Up" and search by zip code to find the facility and team near you. Registration deadline is Friday, May 5. Matches will begin the first week of June. Once you register, the coach will email you to introduce himself.
