The Minnesota PGA Junior Golf ‘Sota Series is committed to bringing competitive playing opportunities to all golfers in the Minnesota Section. In addition to our development options and ‘Sota Series Tours, Minnesota PGA Junior Golf offers additional and advanced playing opportunities for juniors.
12U Junior PGA Championship: The MN 12 & Under Junior PGA Championship is open to boys and girls ages 7 – 12 to compete at an elite level. This event is open to ‘Sota Series Members and non-members. Participants must be aged 7 to 12 as of the event date to participate. This event will be a one-day, 18-hole individual stroke play event. One caddy is allowed per participant.
Minnesota Boys and Girls Junior PGA Championships: Minnesota PGA Junior Golf conducts the local qualifying for the National Girls and Boys Junior PGA Championships. Both Members and Non-Members of Minnesota PGA Junior Golf programs are welcome to play in these events. Due to demand, there are multiple qualifiers for the boys division to reach the Minnesota Boys Junior PGA Championship.
The Overall Low and Runner-Up for both the boys and girls division at the Minnesota Section level will get a chance to compete at the National Junior PGA Championships in their respective category.
Match Play Championship: This tournament is open to all current Junior Tour and Players Tour members. The championship field for the ‘Sota Series Match Play Championship will be comprised of 64 boys and 16 girls and be determined through a set of qualifiers and exempt player registration.
Minnesota-Wisconsin Cup Matches: This invitation-only event brings 12 boys and 12 girls from the Minnesota Section together with 12 boys and 12 girls from the Wisconsin Section in a Ryder Cup style competition. Matches alternate each year between a course in Minnesota and a course in Wisconsin.
Senior Showcase: The Senior Showcase was devised after COVID-19 interrupted the 2020 Minnesota State High School League golf season, and we are planning to continue the event going forward. This event is a seniors-only, one day, individual 18-hole tournament.
