PGA Junior League at Raccoon Creek in 2022

What started as an idea scribbled on a napkin has grown to over 60,000 kids playing on teams nationwide. At the same time, Raccoon Creek’s outstanding spring/summer PGA Junior League programs have grown from 1 to 7 teams!

What is PGA Junior League?

PGA Jr. League includes two age divisions: 13U (ages 8-13) and 17U (ages 14-17).

A key part of PGA Jr. League is the team competition component! All kids will be a part of a team that may consist of anywhere from 8 to 13 players. We attempt to honor all rostering requests so players can play with their friends!

PGA Jr. League Game/Match Format details:

  • Each team is broken down into pairs (or a threesome if we have an odd number of participants) who play together in a match versus players from another team.
  • All PGA Jr. League games are played in a two-player scramble format. This means that both players in a pair 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 in a low-pressure beginner-friendly environment. PGA Jr. League utilizes match play scoring, (hole-by-hole versus the other team) vs. a score-to-par.
  • Within a PGA Jr. League game, pairs play in head-to-head, 9-hole matches. Each match is broken into three flags. Each flag is three holes in a row, and each team can earn points at the end of each flag.
  • Every PGA Jr. League player is required to pay an annual fee of $99, which includes access to their local league and participation in as many seasons as desired throughout the year. This membership includes custom uniforms and team kits
  • Additional Coaching fees include our Spring Kickoff, 6 Skills Sessions, 4 On-course practices, at least 6 Matches and a Family Fun-day

 

‍Families are encouraged to take an active role as spectators and volunteers within their local league. Connect with your local PGA Coach regarding these opportunities when you register for a program.
