Last Chance to Sign Up for PGA Jr. League

Registration Ends Monday, June 10.

Sign-ups are on PGA Jr. League’s website here: LPGC PGA Jr. League Sign-Up. If you have trouble with the link, you can visit and search in “find programs” for Lonnie Poole.

Here’s a reminder of the program details:

For ages 7-17 years old. Participants have an option to sign up for games, or a combination of practices and games. Games are 9-hole matches played in a two-person scramble format. Players team up to compete against one another from different tees based on their age and skill level. The team scramble format takes some pressure off each individual and allows groups to work together to play their best!

Practices will be held on weekday afternoons on select weeks, and feature group instruction from PGA Director of Instruction, Steve Pietsch, and Lead Junior Coach, Tyler Nelson. Different from our Lonnie Poole Little League program which focuses primarily on scoring from closer distances (Op36 Model), the practices will cover essential skills from tee to green, so YES, we’ll be hitting a bunch of drivers!

You can see the planned schedule of events in the PDF flyer below. Please keep in mind two things when reviewing the schedule:

1. The pricing for practice and matches covers 4 practices and 3 games, with additional practices and games subject to a pay-per-day fee. This will hopefully allow those who are traveling over the summer some flexibility! If you know what dates you plan to attend, please let us know ahead of time.

2. The practice weeks indicate the potential practice days. Once registration is closed and we can determine how many total participants and availability, we’ll be able to schedule specific practice slots on one or more of those days each practice week.

There should be some great fun, prizes, and low-stakes competition this summer, and we hope to see many of you out at the course! Registration ends soon! If you have any questions, please just reach out.

9-Hole Match Format

Participating players will be split into overall teams, and then partner up to make a two-person scramble (captain’s choice) team. That means both players hit a shot, and choose the better ball, then both hit shots from that spot. They continue until the ball is holed. For more information on format and rules, visit

If you have any questions, or want more information before signing up, please reach out to PGA Director of Instruction, Steve Pietsch at
