PGA Junior League

 

The Galloping Hill PGA Jr Golf League program boasts 4 teams and a practice squad that utilize facilities at The Learning Center at Galloping Hill in Kenilworth & Ash Brook Golf Course in Scotch Plains. We have an excellent program, open to players of all skill levels, that has grown into one of the premier programs in the state.  Each team is managed by one of our PGA Professionals. The program includes weekly practices with home and away matches.  Our home matches will be played at either Galloping Hill or Ashbrook Golf Courses

The GH PGA Jr League is open for boys and girls ages 7-17. Dates for the tryouts are listed below. After the tryouts, the top 48 players will be placed on one of our 4 teams. One team will practice at Ash Brook while the other three teams will practice at Galloping Hill.  NEW for this year a 17U team(s)! Each 17U team will consist of 6-8 players.  A player may be on both the 13U team and the 17U team for an additional charge.

For some of the younger and or less experienced players, we offer our Practice Squad. The Practice Squad is designed for junior players that are interested in participating in the Jr League but may just lack the experience.  The Practice Squad is also managed by our PGA Professionals providing a great opportunity for the players to hone their skills and increase their confidence.  There will be a weekly practice with some on-course intra-squad scrimmages.  Practice Squad players often serve as alternates for the Junior League teams.  The Practice Squad is offered at a reduced rate.

The GH PGA Junior League program is limited to the first 80 players paid, 48 on a Junior League team and 32 on the Practice Squad.  The deposit is $165 to hold your spot.  If you make a Junior League team you will be asked to pay another $75 and includes the team apparel.  Practice Squad player will not have any additional charges.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at the Learning Center - (908) 241-8380.
