Format


PGA Junior League Golf (PGA JLG) is designed to better socialize the game of golf for your participants 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.

Fun Not Stressful
In PGA JLG the focus is to have fun playing golf with your friends. PGA JLG teams want to win, but the stress often associated with individual medal play tournaments is eliminated by the low-pressure format and the camaraderie of playing on a team with your friends. Our goal is to foster an enjoyment of the game that will last a lifetime.

Team Not Individual
There is no individual scoring in PGA JLG. The two-player scramble format allows for all participants to feel connected with the team. Strong play is rewarded, while a poor shot does not lose the hole. Players of all skill levels are welcome and will contribute to the team’s success. Every player gets to play…in every competition!

“Flags”
Each team-vs-team competition in PGA JLG consists of four 9-hole matches. Each 9-hole match is broken down into three 3-hole segments that we call “Flags”. Actual “Flag” stickers are awarded to participants upon capturing a 3-hole point for their team. The stickers are collected by the players throughout the season, and proudly displayed on their PGA JLG bag-tags as a sign of accomplishment.

Alternates 
In PGA JLG matches, coaches have the opportunity to alternate players at the beginning of each new “Flag”. Each player is guaranteed to play at least one “Flag” in each competition. Alternates allow coaches to create pairs that maximize the team’s chance for success, while still preserving the most enjoyable overall experience for each player.

Uniforms with Numbers
One of PGA JLG’s most popular innovations is our numbered team jerseys. Introduced as part of the uniform for the inaugural JLG World Series in 2011, numbered jerseys will be supplied to all players and teams in 2014. Kids are accustomed to wearing numbered uniforms in other youth sports, so why not golf!!! This helps build a sense of identity for each participant on their PGA JLG team.

Advancement
After the regular-season City Champions are crowned, All-Star Teams are formed to compete in the advancement phase of PGA JLG. Advancement will take place through Regional competitions which will produce Regional Champions. These Regional Champions will compete in the PGA JLG Championship.

How To Donate


“My introduction to the game of golf came in 1968 through my grandfather. In the 48 years since it remains one of my true passions, it has taught me humility, respect and given me the ability to interact with people from all walks of life. The game of golf helped me develop the confidence and ability to become who I am today. To me, golf is the game that keeps on giving.”
