Our PGA Jr League Team Programming links learning to play and learning to compete.
PGA Jr League u13 Season
Due to Covid-19 our ‘fall’ season will become our ‘National’ u13 season. All ‘National’ post season play for PGA Jr League has been canceled, affording us the opportunity to offer both u13 and u17 formats. Our league competes entirely ‘in house’ at Magnolia Green. Both levels feature golf played in a fun team environment with team practices & team vs. team competitions.
u13: The ‘Classic’ Team Scramble Format Competitions feature a less stressful team scramble as opposed to stroke-play competition. All players compete from our ‘Orange Family Tees.’ While the u13 PGA Junior League is a developmental league, all children must be able to carry or pull-cart their own clubs, make their own club selections, keep score, and consistently hit the ball forward and in the air. Players younger than 8 will be evaluated on skill level and course experience for inclusion. Players who are younger or new to the game are encouraged to participate in our Developmental League, designed specifically to get new and young players ready to compete on the travel team.
u17: Two-person Best Ball Match Play (fourball). Players are grouped into teams of 2 who play their own ball for 9 holes. The lower score between them on each hole counts as the team score. A hole is won by the team with the lowest score on the hole. Flags are awarded every 3 holes, ½ points awarded for ties. Players compete from the Red or White Tees depending on age.
