Junior leagues

PGA Junior League brings young people together for team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals. 

PGA Junior Leagues focus on developing an understanding of the rules and etiquette of the game. Junior golfers learn to play in an encouraging, team-scramble format.

PGA Jr. League is the flagship youth pillar program of PGA REACH. The aim is to make PGA Jr. League accessible to all children, regardless of circumstance. 

This unique approach highlights team play versus individual competition and serves as a feeder system to transition youth golfers to existing junior golf programs, such as those offered by local PGA Sections.

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. What started as an idea penned on a napkin while watching the Little League World Series has grown to more than 60,000 boys and girls on teams spanning all 50 states in 2019
