PGA Jr. League is a fun, social, and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls, ages 17 & under, to enjoy the game of golf. Like other recreational youth sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with friends. Our Carolinas PGA Professionals captain teams in a popular two-person scramble format which reinforces the team concept and creates a nurturing environment for learning the game of golf. More than 3,200 juniors across the Carolinas participate in this entry point to the game. For more information about PGA Jr. League, please CLICK HERE!
A record of more than 55,000 kids participated on 4,200 teams nationwide in 2019, which is nearly a 12% increase from the 50,000 players on 3,400 teams in 2018.
In 2019, over 3,200 juniors and more than 150 PGA Professionals participated in PGA Jr. League throughout the Carolinas. With the continued support of Carolinas PGA Members, 2020 looks to be even stronger as we look to grow this fun, introductory golf program.
PGA Jr. League is designed to be more recreational than competitive, there is no denying that the thrill of competition fuels some of the fun. The competition also helps keep “role model” players involved in the program to provide peer mentoring to younger, developing players. Based on last week’s survey results, the Carolinas PGA is excited to share news that we will have an exciting event to replace the postseason as we created the Summer Shootout Tournament! Please see below our game plan on how our section event will be run. .
The Carolinas PGA Jr. League Summer Shootout will look a lot like the NCAA March Madness tournament. Based on the initial survey we are envisioning 64 teams competing in a single elimination tournament to see who will be crowned champion! If we go over our estimated 64 team mark then we will make accommodations for those additional teams. The Carolinas PGA does NOT want to turn away any juniors during these challenging times! We have created a plan to responsibly allow your team to compete in the Carolinas PGA Jr. League Summer Shootout.
The top team in each of the divisions will advance to the finals at Mid Pines Inn & Golf Club in Southern Pines, North Carolina on August 13, 2020 at the Carolinas PGA Jr. League Summer Shootout Championship to see who will be crowned champion! The winning team will be recognized at the 2021 PGA Championship at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort. The winning team will receive tickets for their captains, players, and parents!
