Salt Lake City, Utah. (April 23, 2019) – Salt Lake City is offering PGA Jr. League Golf at four of its local courses in 2019. Registration is now open at PGAJrLeague.com with practices and matches slated to begin in early June. This is a great summer option for kids interested in learning to play golf.
PGA Jr. League is a game-changing program that brings family and friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals. Boys and girls of all backgrounds and skill levels wear numbered jerseys and play on co-ed teams with their friends, competing in a two-person scramble format that builds confidence and encourages sportsmanship.
Players who sign up to play in the city league will have the opportunity to play at four local courses throughout the summer: Rose Park, Nibley Park, Forest Dale Golf Course and Glendale Golf Course. The cost to participate in the city league for the full summer is just $250.
In addition to the league being offered by the city, many other Salt Lake-area courses are offering PGA Jr. League in 2019. The facilities listed below provide golfers and parents the unique convenience of hosting all practices and all league matches at one facility throughout the season. Each of these facilities has also opened its league to the public, meaning parents do not have to be members in order for their kids to participate. Sign-up costs at these facilities vary by course.
• Mountain Dell Golf Course – Salt Lake City • Wasatch Mountain Golf Course – Midway
• Red Ledges – Heber City • River Oaks Golf Course – Sandy
• Oquirrh Hills Golf Course – Tooele • Thanksgiving Point Golf Club – Lehi

In 2018, eighty percent of PGA Jr. League participants nationwide were beginner or recreational golfers, demonstrating the developmental nature of the program and its inclusivity to youth of all skill levels.
Age divisions for PGA Jr. League are 13U and 17U, though not all facilities offer both age groups.
