Wichita Public Golf Courses are hosting PGA Junior League Golf for the second year. PGA Professionals at the Wichita Public Golf Courses- Arthur B. Sim, MacDonald and Tex Consolver - are offering the program for boys and girls ages 9-13. Each of the facilities will field a team consisting of 14 members, which makes up the league. Online registration is open at golfwichita.com, and no prior golf experience is required to participate.
PGA Jr. League Golf is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls to learn and enjoy the game of golf under the direction of PGA Professionals who serve as team captains. Much like other recreational league sports, kids wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with their friends. In 2015, a record 30,000 boys and girls participated on 2,500 PGA Junior League Golf teams nationwide.
Teams play four, nine-hole matches in a two-person scramble format for competition, reinforcing the team concept and creating a nurturing environment for learning the game. Team captains can substitute players every three holes, so that all of the golfers on each team can participate.
