PGA Jr. League is the flagship youth pillar program of PGA REACH. It started in 2011 as a small pilot program, since then, it has grown to more than 60,000 participants around the country. Boys and girls of all backgrounds and skill levels learn and play together in a supportive, two-person scramble format that encourages mentorship, builds confidence and promotes sportsmanship.
The aim is to make PGA Jr. League accessible to all children, regardless of circumstance. This unique approach highlights team play versus individual competition and serves as a feeder system to transition youth golfers to existing junior golf programs, such as those offered by local PGA Sections.
Locally, the Philadelphia PGA Section has had tremendous success with PGA Jr. League as participation among our region reached 145 teams in 2019.
