The South Florida PGA Foundation developed the South Florida PGA Junior Tour in the early 2000’s with a mission of providing playing opportunities for local youth to get involved and learn the game. Over time programming has developed, and now the South Florida PGA Foundation offers five different levels of play for junior golfers age 6 -18.
Committed to providing first class, fun yet competitive events for golfers of all skill levels, we strive to keep our programming affordable and diverse.
Team Golf serves as a fun, social, less stressful approach to tournament play and is a great way to get kids involved with the game of golf in a team environment. Teams are coached by local PGA / LPGA Professionals at facilities throughout south Florida.
PGA Junior League Golf is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls ages 13 and under to learn and enjoy the game of golf. Much like other recreational league sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with their friends.
Each team is captained by a PGA or LPGA Professional, who serves as the coach and is at the forefront of creating a welcoming environment for all to enjoy the game. PGA Junior League Golf utilizes a popular scramble format that creates a nurturing environment for learning and development – both on and off course.
The Junior Prep Tour is our entry level tour for junior golfers from ages 9-18 who are looking to make the jump from Team Golf and other entry level junior programs to the next level of competition. Players must have some previous tournament experience and golf knowledge to be eligible for the Prep Tour. The Prep Tour provides a competitive, yet fun tournament atmosphere, encompassing a nine month season of golf played on some of South Florida’s best golf courses. The Prep Tour is a great way for junior golfers to gain competitive playing experience.
