Courses throughout the area — including Augusta Ranch in Mesa — are enrolling children interested in learning to play golf this summer.

Practices and matches begin in the next few weeks, so interested players and parents should enroll as soon as possible, according to a release.

PGA Jr. League brings family and friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA professionals. Boys and girls of all backgrounds and skill levels wear numbered jerseys and play on co-ed teams with their friends, competing in a two-person scramble format that builds confidence and encourages sportsmanship, according to the release.

“We’re very excited for the 2019 PGA Jr. League season at Augusta Ranch Golf Club,” Daniel Lindsay, PGA, golf instructor at Augusta Ranch Golf Club, said in the release. “Hosting multiple teams at our facility allows us to create an amazing experience for players and their families. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback and we’re looking forward to a great season.”

Last year, PGA Jr. League reported more than 50,000 boys and girls playing on 4,200 teams nationwide. Of those players, 80 percent were beginner golfers.
