Player Eligibility


PGA Jr. League is open to any child 13 & under. Many facilities also offer 17 & under programs, which will be denoted in the facility description on the registration search page. 

The recommended minimum age is 9, however many Captains permit younger players to participate. For both 13u and 17u programs, the cut off birthday is August 1 (which coincides with the official end of the regular season) of the year in which he or she participates.  For example, for the 2019 season, no participant who turns 14 before August 1, 2019 will be eligible to participate in 13u, and no participant who turns 18 before August 1, 2019 will be eligible to participate in 17u.

For the Fall Rec Season, 13u players must be no older than 13-years-old as of December 31, 2019. For 17u teams, players must be no older than 17-years-old as of December 31, 2019.

Boys & Girls

PGA Jr. League is open to both boys and girls.

Due to the program's nurturing scramble format, all teammates can work together and contribute to winning their game, regardless of gender. Boys and girls of similar ability play and compete together in any match pairing (boy-and-girl, girl-and-girl, boy-and-boy). There are no separate divisions or tee boxes and yardages to play from.
