Format & Rules
PGA Junior League Golf is all about the recreational and developmental nature of regular season matches, held between April 1 and July 31!
During the course of one game, teams play four 9-hole matches in a popular two-person scramble format, reinforcing the team concept and creating a nurturing environment for learning the game. Coaches can also substitute players every three holes, so that all of the golfers on each team can participate.
Following the conclusion of the regular season, the competition really heats up!
Beginning in August, 10-player all-star teams are assembled with players from all teams in the league, based upon the final standings. These all-star teams then compete in sub-regional and regional championships for a chance to earn a spot in the PGA Junior League Golf Championship!
