  • 6 weekly games, from June 1 – July 24.
  • League Jamboree Kickoff tournament: Sun, May 29 @ JFP.

PGA JLG Competition Details:

  • Teams of 10-12 match up in 2 vs. 2 “scramble” format for 9 holes.
  • What is “Scramble” format? 2 players hit shots from the same location, select the better shot, and both play the next from that position, and continue until the ball is in the hole.
  • Some groups will have 3 players from each team, in which case players alternate in and out, each playing 6 of the 9 holes.
  • Matches held Sunday evenings at 5:00pm.
  • Teams represent The First Tee program locations, as well as other local golf courses and country clubs.
  • The First Tee teams will be made up of participants age 8-13, with some exceptions made for advanced PLAYer participants.

PGA JLG Selection Criteria:

Space is limited, so players will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Minimum age: 8 (must be PLAYer Certified)

  • Experience playing in “Week 9” Championships (minimum of one).
