PGA Junior League Golf is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls ages 13 and younger. Kids learn the game with their friends in a recreational environment under professional instruction and direction of PGA/LPGA professionals (team captains).
Participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams in a popular scramble format.
After playing regular-season matches, 10-player all-star teams comprised of players within the league were assembled. The all-star teams competed in sub-regional championships in their areas with the winners earning a spot in one of the eight regionals held throughout the country. The eight regional champions advance to the PGA Junior League Golf Championship. 
