Meadia Heights is proud to announce the formation of a PGA Junior League Golf Team!  This fun activity for all junior golfers from the ages of 13 and under.

 PGA Junior League Golf (PGA JLG) is designed to better socialize the game for boys and girls, ages 13 and under. PGA JLG features team vs. team competitions in structured leagues that provide a popular, less stressful scramble format as opposed to stroke-play competition. This is a great way to get kids involved in the game!

Junior League Golf launched as a pilot program in 2011, with teams competing in four select markets: Atlanta, Tampa, Dallas, and San Diego. The Atlanta team won the inaugural JLG World Series held in September 2011 at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, GA. In 2012, PGA Jr. League Golf saw close to 2000 participants on over 120 teams in more than 20 select markets. The 2012 season culminated with 5 Regional Champions (teams from Georgia, Texas, New Jersey, California, and Florida) joining the host team from Illinois in the PGA JLG Championship held in September 2012 at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont, IL.  Team California emerged victorious from the competition to bring the 2012 season to a close.

In 2013, PGA Jr. League Golf saw nearly 9,000 participants on over 740 teams across North America.  The 2013 season culminated with 6 Regional Champions (teams from Georgia, California, Texas, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Indiana) competing for the National Championship at TPC Sugarloaf in Atlanta, Ga.  Team Georgia emerged victorious to bring the 2013 season to a close.

All players receive with their league entry, practice and playing privileges during the league season as well as a team jersey for their matches.  What a great, no-stress way to bring golf to youth!
