A fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls to learn and enjoy the game
As the proud host of the PGA Jr. League Championship, all of us at Grayhawk Golf Club have a soft spot for this particular junior golf program. And judging from its skyrocketing popularity – 42,000 juniors participated nationwide in 2017 – many other people do, too.
Every Player of Every Skill Level is Welcome!
After fielding a league last year and hosting the championship finals at Grayhawk Golf Club for the second year in a row (and through 2022), it’s easy to see why this program is taking off. And, no matter how many kids participate, there’s always room for more. Registration for the 2018 season is now open with leagues popping up across the U.S. It’s open to beginners and experts alike. In fact, 80 percent of players from last season identified as beginner or recreational golfers. PGA Jr. League is for every player, of every skill level, everywhere!

The PGA REACH Program
A key initiative of PGA REACH, the PGA of America’s charitable arm, kids play on teams with friends in a low-pressure scramble format and wear numbered jerseys, while learning the game from PGA and LPGA Professionals. Superstars Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson also serve as Official PGA Jr. League Ambassadors.
How Do You Join Team Grayhawk?
Local teams will compete throughout the month of May and our All-Star team will be formed in June. We’ll then commence practice for the regionals and sub-regionals which kick off in August. If successful at these levels, our Grayhawk Team will have a chance to play in the national championship rounds at its home course at Grayhawk.

Grayhawk’s all-star team made a solid run at the title last year. We battled through local and sub-regional competitions before narrowly missing a berth into the national championship held here at Grayhawk. Although visions of earning a national championship at our home course went unrealized, winning is far from the purpose of this casual competition.
Thoughts From the Coach
After serving as coach for our team and really getting a feel for this special junior golf program, it’s clearly one of the most rewarding junior programs I’ve been involved with as a PGA Professional. Growing the game is the objective for everyone involved with golf; it’s very gratifying to be a part of a program that truly accomplishes this goal. Get signed up for Team Grayhawk today!
