How does my child get to his/her matches?
Just as in any recreational sports league, it is the responsibility of each participant’s parent/guardian to get them to and from home and away matches during the regular season, and postseason matches.
Will my son and daughter be using the same tee boxes?
Yes. All participants tee-off using the same tee boxes, regardless of age or gender. These designated tees will be “youngster” friendly, and history shows that girls in this age group compete quite favorably against the boys.
What does a competition consist of?
Each competition is team vs. team format consisting of four 9-hole matches. The format for each match is a two-player scramble, divided into three 3-hole segments called “Flags”. Each “Flag” is worth one point, and alternates are allowed to sub in at the beginning of each new “Flag” (Holes 4 and 7). Players are assigned to a specific match at the beginning of the competition, and may play only within that match. It is also required that every junior play at least one “Flag.”
Will I be able to watch my son/daughter participate?
It is highly encouraged for parents, family and friends join the team as they walk and play a 9-hole match. It is the responsibility of the Team Captain to have no less than 4 parents/adults per match as a “scorekeeper”.
How can I get involved with my son/daughter PGA JLG Team?
Volunteers are appreciated in several areas of PGA JLG, please contact Team Captain, Chris Obert for Volunteer opportunities. (Match Monitors/Scorekeepers, Team-Mothers, Coaches)
My child has only played in medal/stroke competitions. How does the scoring work with the PGA JLG team concept?
- Each three-hole segment of a match is called a “Flag”
- Matches consist of 9-holes, or 3 “Flags”
- 1 point is awarded per “Flag”, 3 points available per match
- 4 total matches per competition

Every player attending a PGA JLG competition will play in a match. Teams must have a minimum of 8 players to start a match. Each player in attendance must play at least one “Flag” (3-hole segment). Alternates will be allowed at the beginning of each new “Flag” (Holes 4 and 7). Players must stay with the original match they are assigned to.◦If a “Flag” is tied, a half point is awarded to each team.
How long will each match take?
Each match will consist of 9-holes of scramble play, and will last approximately 2.25 hours.
What is the format for Postseason play?
While PGA-JLG is designed to be more recreational than competitive, it is important to keep “role model” players involved in the program so that we are able to provide positive peer mentoring for those younger players being introduced to golf competition.
