PGA Jr. League
At its core, PGA Jr. League is a group of local golf teams who play a series of games against each other, utilizing a nurturing and social scramble format. PGA and LPGA Professionals exclusively serve as Captains and are responsible for creating a welcoming environment for all that encourages skill and character development.
Drive, Chip & Putt Championship
A joint initiative founded in 2013 by the Masters Tournament, United States Golf Association and The PGA of America, Drive, Chip and Putt is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf for boys and girls ages 7-15. *The 2021 Championship season has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
NEW in 2020! The Minnesota Section PGA and PGA REACH Minnesota created the Youth Putting Challenge in response to the cancellation of Drive, Chip and Putt Championships.
A series of youth putting challenge qualifiers, leading into a 1-day championship on Sunday, August 9th. Youth members and non-members 7-18 years old are eligible to compete. Participants will test their skills on an 18-hole putting course and qualifiers in each division will be decided by the lowest cumulative score. The top-2 plus ties (per division) will earn their spot in the championship. Unlike Drive, Chip & Putt, each competitor may register and compete in multiple events.
All competitors must reside within the Minnesota PGA Section boundaries (All of Minnesota and North Dakota, South Dakota [less areas surrounding cities of Rapid City, Vermillion, and Yankton]; and a portion of Western Wisconsin that includes St. Croix County and Superior, Wisconsin).
