What is PGA Jr. League?

13U - SPRING

We take pride in scheduling an abundant practice schedule to help your son and daughter improve through the spring and summer. Practices (10 scheduled) are optional but highly recommended.  Practices are scheduled twice a week prior to the matches beginning.  Once matches begin (Sunday April 30th), practices will be reduced to once a week.  Practice times will be released once your son/daughter is assigned to one of the six teams.  Practices will be approximately 90 minutes.  All times will be posted in the PGA Jr. League app. You can choose the specific day of week to practice ahead of season by contacting League Captain John Dipollina. Your son or daughter will be placed on the team that practices that specific day.

Matches (6) will begin held on Sunday afternoons beginning April 30th.   Exact match times will be posted the evening prior by the coaching staff.  We ask all parents to RSVP to each match date well ahead of time so we the coaches can provide an exact time for your son/daughter to tee off.  This will eliminate needless waiting around and allow your family to schedule accordingly.

All matches will be played on The Apple 9 Course.  Players based on ability levels/age will compete from different sets of tees.  Tees will be decided by the coaches only.

***EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION ENDS MARCH 15th***

Zoom meeting to introduce the program will be held early April in preparation to season.

The first five matches will be played on either the Jones or Player Championship Courses.  The final match will be held on The Apple 9.  Players based on ability levels/age will compete from different sets of tees.  Red tees will be encouraged for girls and beginner to intermediate boys.  Gold tees will be encouraged for advanced boys.
