We are excited to announce that we will again be hosting Walt Disney World® Golf teams in the upcoming 2021 PGA Junior League Golf season! The PGA Junior League Golf program is designed to provide a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls age 13 and under to learn and enjoy the game of golf.
The PGA Tour's Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler, the LPGA Tour's Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson, NBA MVP Steph Curry and Olympic Soccer Gold Medalist Alex Morgan all serve as PGA Junior League Ambassadors.
Each League team consists of eight to twelve players, and a PGA or LPGA Professional serves as the captain for each team. For the Walt Disney World® Golf team, the captain will be Michael Schlager, our PGA Director of Instruction, and joining him will be a selection of our Assistant Golf Professionals.
There will typically be between four and seven teams that form a local league in a common geographic area, like Lake Buena Vista. Depending upon the number of teams that are created within the area, the number of local events will vary, with the event schedule typically taking place between April and July.
Participating players wear numbered uniforms and play in a two-person, scramble format over nine holes. Matches between teams are scored based upon wins, ties, and losses, in three-hole segments called "flags".
More details on the League format and structure are available here, and information regarding the conditions of play are available here. PGA Junior League safety guidelines for participation are available here, which along with our own Know Before You Go information, are intended to provide for a healthy and safe golf experience.
The cost for the upcoming season is $425 plus tax, per player, and includes team jerseys, golf balls, bag tags, 10 weeks of coaching/practice sessions with our PGA of America golf professionals, and a complimentary Player’s Club membership during the league season!
We look forward to welcoming you and your junior golfers to the "Happiest Place on TURF!" to become part of the Disney magic!
