After two consecutive League Titles, our Junior League team is attempting to secure a 3-peat this year! And, in order to get more playing time for everyone this year, we will be fielding two Junior League teams in separate leagues, so we can accommodate up to 24 players this season. Our teams of junior players will play a 6-match schedule versus other teams from throughout Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts in an effort to see who truly has the best team of kids.
Open to players ages 13 & under (as of July 31st), the PGA Junior League format is 9-hole two- person scramble match play. Each match is divided into 3 segments of three holes each, allowing for substitutions after each segment. This allows up to 12 kids to play in each match, with each playing at least 6 of the 9 holes. At the end of the regular season, each "league" (3-4 teams) sends an "all-star" team to compete at the regional level—just like Little League. The winning regional team then heads onto the national finals in October.
Cost for this program is $275 per player for the season. This includes 6 matches and 10 practices. Practices will consist of both on-course and on the range instruction and will start in late May. Matches will be held on Saturday afternoons (both home and away) and will begin in late-June.
Also, we would love to have a parent volunteer(s) that could serve as a "captain" and assist with the matches—especially on the road. If this interests you, please contact me and we will discuss the details.
