JUNIOR GOLF SPRING LEAGUE (March - June)
LEAGUE FULL. Click the registration link below to be placed on the waitlist.
Our Spring golf league is designed for junior golfers ages 8-14 (grades 2-8) that have GOLF COURSE PLAYING EXPERIENCE and want to play on the course to compete in a team-friendly format. It is structured similar to other youth sports leagues in that players participate on a TEAM and compete against the other teams in the league. It is geared towards kids of most abilities and experience levels as long as they can maneuver on the course with little to no adult guidance.
The game format is a 2v2 Scramble Match Play (similar to PGA Jr. Leagues). The 2023 season featured 68 players separated amongst four teams that competed in six games and a season-ending Stroke Play Invitational. Games were played at the five county courses (Princeton CC, Mercer Oaks East/West, Hopewell Valley, and Mountain View) giving them exposure to various types of terrain and course layouts.
