Junior Golf Programs and Services
Serving Youth Golf in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts
An important mission of the Connecticut Section PGA is player development, and particularly youth golf. The Connecticut Secton has a number of programs designed to develop young golfers who either are interested in beginning the game or further enhancing their golfing experiences (see below).
Established in 1998, the Connecticut Section PGA Junior Golf Association (JGA) is open to membership for juniors between the ages of 10-18 who reside within the section boundaries (includes Western Massachusetts, excludes lower Fairfield County). One main focus is increasing the playing opportunities for junior golfers. Every year, the Junior Golf TOUR (JGT) begins end of June through end of August.

Other special tournaments and championships include the Junior Connecticut PGA Championship, the Jack Kelly PGA Junior Tournament of Champions, the PGA Pro-Junior Invitational, the Remy Cup Matches, and the Junior Team Championship.
Youth golf introductory programs are posted on PGA Play Golf America and include PGA Junior Golf League and PGA Sports Academy.
