PGA Junior League is a fun, social, and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls, ages 13 & under, to enjoy the game of golf.

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 2,000 juniors across the Carolinas participate in this entry point to the game
