What is it?

PGA Junior League Golf (PGA JLG) is designed to better socialize the game of golf for participants aged 13 and under. The program features a team-vs-team format in a structured league providing a popular, less stressful, scramble format. PGA JLG is a great way to get the entire family involved in golf, with parents as spectators, team-mothers, and even coaches.

There are numerous benefits associated with the program:

  • Playing on a team is low-pressure and less stressful. The primary goal is to enjoy the game for life!
  • There is no individual scoring and all the players get to play in every competition!
  • “Flags” are awarded and collected throughout the season to display proudly on their bag-tags.
  • Coaches have the ability to alternate players to maximize the team’s success.
  • Numbered jerseys for each of the players helps build a sense of identity for each participant.
  • Opportunity for advancement through Regional Competitions.

Parent Involvement

Similar to other youth recreational sports, PGA JLG encourages and relies on parental involvement. In addition to making sure participants get to matches and practices, parents can play an important role in the success of their team:

  • Team captain/assistant
  • Coach
  • Team-mother
  • Match monitor/scorer
  • Player recruitment
