PGA Junior League Golf (PGA JLG) is designed to better socialize the game for boys and girls, ages 13 and under. PGA JLG features team vs. team competitions in structured leagues that provide a popular, less stressful scramble format as opposed to stroke-play competition. Much like other recreational league sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with their friends. This is a great way to get kids involved in the game!

Junior League Golf launched as a pilot program in 2011, with teams competing in four select markets: Atlanta, Tampa, Dallas, and San Diego. The Atlanta team won the inaugural JLG World Series held in September 2011 at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, GA.
Since that inaugural season, PGA Junior League Golf continues to be one of America’s fastest growing youth programs, with a near 100 percent increase each year.
