Gilbert-Bunnell Junior Interclub

The Gilbert-Bunnell Foundation, local leader in junior golf, is proud to announce the return of The Gilbert-Bunnell Junior Interclub!

The Interclub had a large impact on junior golf in this area for many years, and its return brings great opportunities for junior golfers of all skill levels to play competitive golf at a variety of golf courses. Gilbert-Bunnell has partnered with Play Golf Lex to manage and operate the Interclub.

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

2022 Junior Golf Camps

Gilbert-Bunnell Golf and Recreation Camp – 2022

Play Golf Lex Junior Golf Camps are both fun and educational, focusing on athletic and golf-skill development. With programming designed by PGA Professionals, campers are taught the basics of golf throughout the entire week. Instructors also utilize obstacle courses, throwing exercises, footgolf, and other non-golf activities to promote the development of athletic ability. Campers must provide their own lunch, snacks, and beverages (snacks and drinks available for purchase on-site). The Camp operates from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

Golf will take place in the morning, and recreation activities will be in the afternoon. Lunch will be from noon to 1 p.m. for our all-day campers.
