Play Golf Lex Junior Programs

Play Golf Lex Junior Programs are designed to create an exciting environment for kids of all skill levels and experience. Programming is operated by PGA Professionals and associates. We will be offering multiple options that will fit the needs of junior golfers, recreationally or competitively.

2023 Junior Golf Programming includes:

PGA Jr. League

  • Spring
  • Summer
  • Fall

Golf Camps

  • Summer camps (seven sessions)

Play Golf Lex Junior Tour sponsored by the Gilbert Bunnell Foundation

New for 2023! Have a beginner to an intermediate junior golfer who is looking for a chance to get out on the course, have a fun time, and have a chance to compete for prizes and medals. The season runs from April through early August and rotates between our five public golf courses.

What makes the Play Golf Lex Junior Tour different? Instead of grouping players together by age and gender, like you find in most junior golf tours, we allow players to compete in divisions and against players that allow them to have success, have fun and improve. As players improve, they will have the opportunity to graduate and move up to the subsequent division, placing your junior golfer in the best division for their growth and enjoyment of the game.

Junior leagues

PGA Junior League brings young people together for team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals. The league focuses 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. It 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 a fun, team golf experience. 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
