Participant Spotlight: PGA Jr League

Categories: Blog, Participant Spotlight

The PGA Jr League is a program where junior golfers have the opportunity to enjoy their first team golf experience.  Playing in a 2-player captain’s choice format, juniors take turns playing with and caddying for their group.  The program encourages sportsmanship, promotes mentorship, and builds confidence.
For the last three summers, The First Tee of Greater Charleston has participated as its own team in the Charleston region, competing against teams from area public and private golf courses.  Our team is open to participants at the Advanced PLAYer, Par, and Birdie levels, who are between the ages of 8 and 13.  This summer, we had so much demand for the PGA Jr League that we created two teams who each competed in matches at fantastic courses like the Country Club of Charleston and Kiawah’s River Course.  Participants earned flags for winning their 3-hole matches as well as showing teamwork, respect, and responsibility.
Thank you to all of families who sent in photos from this season’s matches and practices!To end the season, PGA Jr League players had the chance to attend a Riverdogs game with their families earlier this month.  All players were even down on the field, high-fiving players before the game!
If your child is at the Advanced PLAYer, Par, or Birdie level and interested in joining PGA Jr League, be on the lookout for registration information in the spring of 2019!
