PGA Jr League
-Expert Coaching: Behind each and every PGA Jr. League team is a PGA Coach providing a safe, caring and organized environment for every child to become (and stay) a golfer. These experts in the game are provided with flexibility to create a coaching program that works best for their players and families.
-Teams with Friends: Easily one of the best parts of PGA Jr. League is the team component! All kids will be a part of a team that may consist 10-12 players.
-League Play: At FGLC, we run an in-house league for the 13U program where all practices and matches are held at FGLC. The 17U teams are part of a local league where we play and practice at FGLC as well as matches at other facilities in the metro area.
-The PGA Jr. League Format: Each team is broken down into two or three-person pairs who play together in games. All PGA Jr. League games are played in a scramble format. This means that each players on the team hit drives. The best shot is selected, then each player plays from the selected spot, and this process continues until the ball is holed. The scramble format is key in allowing everyone to hit shots and contribute to the team. PGA Jr. League utilizes match play scoring, which focuses on performance vs. a score-to-par as is traditional with golf. Within a PGA Jr. League game, pairs play in a head-to-head, 9-hole match. Each match is broken into three flags. Each flag is three holes in a row, and each team has the opportunity to earn points at the end of each flag.
