PGA Junior League at Wilmette Golf Club
May 5-July 31, 2016
The PGA of America is spearheading a program that gives children age 8-13 the opportunity to enjoy golf in a fun and competitive team format. Think of it as little league baseball for golfers. The structured league will provide a popular, less stressful scramble format as opposed to stroke-play competition. This is a great way to keep kids involved in the game.
The team will play on Thursday nights and Saturdays from 5/1 to 7/31 at Wilmette Golf Club; players may be selected to play at other clubs in the area. Other travel teams include: Indian Hill Club, Westmoreland CC, North Shore CC, The Glen Club, Bryn Mawr CC and Sportsman’s GC.
- Ten regular season competitions in a fun scramble format
- Six one-hour team practices led by Director of Instruction Kim McCombs
- Team jersey and hat
- PGA Junior League bag tags

Junior Golf Lessons
During these 4-week sessions we introduce the basic concepts of the long and short game, as well as accepted parameters of behavior on and around the golf course. It has been our experience that if kids know what is expected of them at a golf course, and are able to enjoy the game as it was meant to be enjoyed, the learning of the game takes care of itself. Here’s the opportunity to lay the foundation for a life time of enjoying the game of golf. Fees are $99 for residents and $125 for non-residents.
