What is PGA Jr. League?
PGA Jr. League is a game-changing opportunity for boys and girls to learn and play golf. PGA Jr. League brings family friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals. Play on teams with friends, wear numbered jerseys and compete in a two-person scramble format.
Eligibility: Open to boys and girls ages 8-13, of any skill level and backgrounds who want to have fun playing golf. You don’t have to be a resident of Gorham to participate.

To Be Determined but end of May and into June.
Skill Level: PGA JLG is an inclusive program that encourages boys and girls of all skill levels. We suggest that players achieve a minimum basic level of competence in at least one discipline; driving, chipping or putting, before joining a team. Our scramble format provides a comfort zone for the developing player. For the accomplished Junior who may already be competing in individual tournaments, PGA JLG offers the opportunity to develop leadership skills in a team setting and most importantly, play on a team with friends.
Parent Involvement: Similar to other youth recreational sports, PGA JLG encourages and relies on parental involvement. In addition to making sure participants get to matches and practices, parents can play an important role in the success of their team: Team captain/assistant, Team-mother, Match monitor/scorer and Player recruitment.
