Registration is now open for the spring/summer PGA Jr. League team at Lake Junaluska Golf Course for players age 13 and younger of all skill levels, including beginners.
During the season, which runs from mid-May through the end of July, the team will host up to five one-hour afternoon practices at the Lake Junaluska Golf Course. Practices cover skills such as putting, chipping and playing as a team.
The team also will participate in up to five afternoon matches, which will be a two-person scramble format in which team players work together, hitting the “best ball” of each of their two shots throughout the match.
The team captain is Charlie Carswell, a PGA golf professional who serves as pro shop manager and golf professional at the Lake Junaluska Golf Course.
The registration fee of $190 per player includes team practice sessions, matches, home and away jerseys, bag tag, a performance ball cap, performance T-shirt, drawstring bag, access to the PGA Jr. League Merchandise Store, 10 percent discount on items in stock at the Lake Junaluska pro shop and a 10 percent discount on individual lessons. Scholarships are available.
