PGAJL-Logo“We’re looking forward to introducing members of our community to golf through PGA Jr. League. Golf is a game that can be enjoyed for a lifetime, and PGA Jr. League is the ideal program for all kids, from those who’ve never picked up a club to experienced junior golfers", said Cranberry Highlands golf pro and Jr. League coordinator, Jody Barrett.

PGA Junior League has grown in all 50 states and have over 60,000 participants. If interested in signing, please visit the link to PGA Junior League.

The PGA has formed a Junior League to transform learning and playing golf into a team activity for friends and family. This year, Cranberry Highlands will host the program for children 16 and under at all levels of proficiency – including those new to the sport.  However, every participant should have access to their own set of golf clubs. 

The PGA describes the Jr. League as the flagship youth program of its diversity/inclusion project, PGA Reach.  It is designed to make golf accessible to interested kids throughout the United States and around the world.

Children in the program will get expert coaching from Cranberry Highlands PGA Professionals, along with organized team practice sessions and regular matches. Players will wear customizable numbered jerseys and compete on teams in a two-person scramble format that encourages mentorship and builds confidence. The season includes 4 to 6 matches, and all participants get to play in every competition.
