PGA Junior League

PGA Jr. League is shifting the perception of youth golf and the way learned and played. The program brings family and friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching and instruction from PGA and LPGA Professionals. It’s a game changer, and we’re so excited to offer PGA Jr. League at Christensen Golf Academy (playing the third 9 at Westview), Old Orchard CC in Pittsfield, and River Valley Golf Club in Canton.

Our PGA Jr. League program is open to boys and girls ages 6-13 of all skill levels – no golf experience required! Kids will learn the game and enjoy relaxed competition in a two-person scramble format that encourages mentorship, builds confidence and teaches sportsmanship. Kids will receive instruction from Mark Christensen, the 2012 Gateway PGA Teacher of the Year, and his staff

Practice for the Pittsfield Team will take place on Saturdays May 1, 8, 15, 22

I am planning on several Quincy Teams:  Until I have a better handle on the numbers associated with kids in Quincy, I will not be able to be extremely definitive.

Practice for Quincy Teams will take place on Sundays,  April 25, May 2, 9, 16.
They could also be scheduled for Monday evenings, April 26, May 3, 10, 17.

Practice times have not been determined at this point.  Times will be announced shortly after the registration deadline.

I can’t emphasize this enough.  Need based scholarships are available for this program.  If your child qualifies for Free or reduced lunch, your child can play for free.  If there is an active or retired military veteran in your immediate family your child is eligible for a $75 scholarship.  If your family is suffering from a medical hardship you may be eligible for a scholarship.  if you qualify for a need based scholarship and your child doesn’t have clubs and you can’t afford them, I will get them provided at no charge.

We look forward to a fun PGA Jr. League season at Christensen Golf Academy!
