Junior League

About:

PGA Junior League Golf is a fun, social, and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls, ages 13 and under, to enjoy the game of golf from PGA and LPGA Professionals. All of our junior programs are designed to help young golfers understand the game of golf and have fun in the process. During class, our instructors teach swing fundamentals, short game, rules, etiquette, and safety. Our goal is to help each junior enjoy the game of golf and reach their golfing potential.
