Junior Golf League
The PGA Junior League Golf (PGA JLG) is "Little League" for golf.
Local teams are formed and play other local teams. Everyone plays, learns, and has fun.
It is designed for players new to the game, and, players developing their game.
As players gain in skill and confidence, they may choose to move into the GRGF Junior Golf Tour for individual stroke play.
The league play is for boys and girls, ages 8 - 13. Older junior players can participate as "assistant coaches and player assistants". Grassroots Golf Foundation partnering with PGA JLG to support team vs. team competitions in structured leagues that provide a popular, less stressful scramble format as opposed to stroke-play competition.
It is designed to be like a "Little League" program where local teams play other local teams, and try to qualify to area, regional, and national events.
This league is designed for players still developing their skills. Teams are formed and practice once per week. Instruction is provided by trained The First Tee and/or PGA instructors. Parents may also be trained to help coach and supervise parts of the practice sessions. The intention is that players in this program grow in skill and competitive ability to enter into the "9 hole" and "18 hole" divisions of the competitive, stroke play divisions of the Grassroots Junior Tournament Series described above.
Fees for the PGA Jr. League team is $150 per player. This does not include the annual GRGF membership fee ($25) which is good for all other GRGF programs. Scholarships are available. Team is from 8 - 12 players.
