|The Alabama Junior Golf Association is the Official Home of Junior Golf in Alabama, hosting more than 50-Tournaments each year!||For players just getting started with golf, we have the PGA Junior League Golf program. For players Age 13 and Under.|
The Alabama Junior Golf Association offers Junior Golfers – all across the State – several Levels of Play.
Select one of the Tabs to the left to Learn More.
PGA JLG is designed to better socialize the game of golf for participants Age 13 and under. The program features a team-vs-team format in a structured league providing a popular, less stressful, scramble format.
PGA JLG is a great way to get the entire family involved in golf, with parents as spectators, team-mothers, and even coaches.
There is no individual scoring in PGA JLG. The two-player scramble format allows for all participants to feel connected with the team. Strong play is rewarded, while a poor shot does not lose the hole. Players of all skill levels are welcome and will contribute to the team’s success. Every player gets to play…in every competition!
In PGA JLG the focus is to have fun playing golf with your friends. PGA JLG teams want to win, but the stress often associated with individual medal play tournaments is eliminated by the low-pressure format and the camaraderie of playing on a team with your friends. Our goal is to foster an enjoyment of the game that will last a lifetime.
If you are interested in starting a PGA JLG League or Team at your golf club contact the Alabama Junior Golf Association at (205) 594-3267 or visit www.pgajrleaguegolf.com to get started!
The Tour Division is a new 9-Hole Division offered by the Alabama Junior Golf Association.
This division is designed for Boys ages 8 to 13 and Girls ages 8 to 14 that are fairly skilled in the game of golf, but are in the process of developing their competitive game.
These players traditionally have higher handicaps and are less experienced in tournament golf. With the wide range of ability levels within the game of golf we look to give each player the ability to enjoy and compete.
Tour Division Juniors will be playing 9-hole rounds at yardages between 2,400-2,800 yards. Once you have made the move up to the 18-Hole Division, you may not move back down to the Tour Division without approval from the Alabama Junior Golf Association. (The Alabama Junior Golf Association reserves the right to move players who are excelling up into the 18-Hole Division.)
The Alabama Junior Golf Association (AJGO) is the statewide, non-profit junior golf association for the State of Alabama.
About Qualifier Tournaments
As a competitive junior golfer, the career path is playing in:
Here is my list of the “Majors of Junior Golf”:
The majority of these tournaments are Invitationals or have State Qualifying Tournaments – and for 2013, we are hosting (5) of these State Qualifying Tournaments.
Our goal is to provide Junior Golfers in Alabama with an opportunity to earn a place in the field of one of these Major National Junior Championship Tournaments without having to travel out of State. This is why we believe these State of Alabama Qualifier Tournaments are so important – it makes earning a entry to a National Championship affordable to almost all players.
