PGA Junior League 13U
PGA Junior League is a competitive league open to boys and girls ages 7 years old to 13 years old. Teams play a 9-hole match in a two-person scramble format, reinforcing the team concept and creating a nurturing environment for learning the game. The season usually starts around mid-May and concludes the first week of August. During the season, juniors have both a weekly practice and a weekly match at surrounding courses in the Caldwell/Nampa/Meridian area in the month of June and July.
