2019 PGA Junior League Team


PGA Jr. League is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls 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 Professional, who serves as the coach and is at the forefront of creating a welcoming environment for all to enjoy the game. PGA Jr. League utilizes a popular scramble format that creates a nurturing environment for learning and development – both on and off course. 

PGA Jr. League is the key youth initiative of PGA REACH, the charitable arm of the PGA of America. As such, the program focuses on fun, recreation, good health and sportsmanship. PGA Jr. League is recreational and developmental in nature and works with PGA Sections and local youth organizations across the country to offer an alternative, social golf format. This unique approach highlights team play versus individual competition and serves as a feeder system to transition youth golfers to existing junior golf programs.

PGA Jr. League is all about the recreational and developmental nature of regular season matches, held between June 10 and July 31.

During the course of one game, teams play four 9-hole matches in a popular two-person scramble format, reinforcing the team concept and creating a nurturing environment for learning the game. Coaches can also substitute players every three holes, so that all of the golfers on each team can participate.

PGA Jr. League is open to both boys and girls, 13 and under*, of all abilities!

The recreational nature of the regular season provides opportunities for skill and character development - on and off course - in addition to plenty of opportunities for fun, friends and family engagement with golf.

Following the conclusion of the regular season, the competition really heats up!

Beginning in August, 10-player All-Star teams are assembled with players from a combination of teams in the league, based upon the final standings.  These All-Star teams then compete in Sub-Regional and Regional competitions for a chance to earn a spot in the PGA Jr. League Championship!
