What is PGA Jr. League?

Sponsored by the PGA of America, PGA Jr. League brings friends, families, and communities together through the game of golf by offering team-based, competition golf for kids of all ages and skill levels. First Tee — Fort Worth is proud to host its own section of PGA Jr. League captained by our very own PGA member, Coach Charleton Dechert.

Participants register to play in the 13U or 17U leagues where they will be assigned to a team. Participants on each team play a predetermined number of holes in a scramble format in a group of 2-5 participants on the same team. Each week, teams are matched against each other to determine the number of points earned by each team at the end of a match. Points are accumulated among teams after each match to determine a champion team at the end of the season.

Parents will receive information on tee times and pairings prior to each match.

 

Who Can Play?

Experienced or not, any First Tee — Fort Worth participant between the ages of 6 and 17 can register to play in PGA Jr. League in either the 13U League or the 17U League. A participant under the age of 12 who has played competitive golf may move up to the 17U League with permission from a coach.

Our 13U League consists of beginner and advanced junior golfers between the ages of 6 and 13 and this group plays mostly at the Rivers Edge 6 hole course at our Rockwood Golf Course program location.  A typical match may take around 1 hour to finish once a group tees off their first hole.

Our 17U League consists of beginner and advanced golfers as well between the ages of 12 and 17.  We typically play Squaw Creek and Pecan Valley golf courses and play 9 hole matches.  Players play their own ball with a scoring system in place for fairness.  A typical match may take 2 1/2 hours to play once a group has teed off.
