Format & Rules


PGA Jr. League is all about the recreational and developmental nature of regular season matches, held between March 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.
