YOUTH GOLF LEAGUE – PGA JUNIOR LEAGUE GOLF
PGA Junior League Golf is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls, ages 13 and under, to learn and enjoy the game of golf from PGA and LPGA Professionals. Like many other recreational youth sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with friends.
Try outs are held in March. Teams meet once a week in April to practice and matches are normally held weekly in May and June.
PGA Junior League Golf is all about the recreational and developmental nature of regular season matches. During the course of one game, teams play four 9-hole matches in a popular two-person scramble match play 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 Junior League Golf is a great way for The First Tee of Plainfield to use their First Tee golf, core value, and life skill training.
