PGA Junior League Golf takes a team-approach to the game. Much like other recreational youth sports, kids wear numbered jerseys, and play on teams with friends, utilizing a popular scramble format for competition. In 2016, a record-setting 36,000 kids participated in the program nationwide.

Parents can visit PGAJLG.com, click “Find a Team” or “Sign Up,” and search by facility name or by ZIP code to easily register for the team of their choice.

PGA and LPGA Professionals serve exclusively as Captains for PGA Junior League Golf teams, ensuring kids are given the opportunity to learn from the experts in the game. With parents and family members encouraged to serve as coaches, volunteers and spectators, PGA Junior League Golf involves the entire family and introduces them to an all-ages sport they can play and enjoy together.
The program also has the support of some of the biggest names in golf—including Rory McIlroy, Michelle Wie, Rickie Fowler and Lexi Thompson—who serve as Ambassadors for PGA Junior League Golf.
