Junior Golf Program

Pitman Junior Golf Association

The Pitman Golf Course is proud to offer a Junior Golf Association for kids ages 13 through 17.  The PJGA program starts up on June 24th, registration begins on Friday, June 13th.  Call the pro shop (856-589-6688) for details!

The PJGA is a summer golf program for junior golfers ages 13 through 17.  This program is not a beginner level program but rather is designed to help further develop their golf skills through weekly practice and competition days.  As always, all new participants will be required to pass a written rules and etiquette test as well as a playing ability test prior to being permitted entry into the league competition portion of the program.  The tests are designed to indicate a minimum required level of knowledge and ability to play on the course without direct assistance during the summer’s program.  The cost to register is $185 p/golfer and includes a PGC Junior Golf ID Card for discounted daily rates as well as all fees associated with the practice and league days. 

PJGA Summer Schedule
Friday, June 13th – Registration Opens  
Beginning June 24th – Every Tuesday, Practice Day, 1:00pm – 2:30pm (through 8/19)
Beginning July 3rd – Every Thursday, PJGA Official Event, Tee times begin at 1pm (through 8/21)

What To Bring – All golfers will need their own set of clubs and each junior is required to carry their own clubs or they may use a pull cart.  The dress code for all junior golfers will be as follows;  Collared shirts are preferred, no tank-tops or cut-offs of any kind (shirts, shorts, etc) will be permitted.  Golf shoes with “soft-spikes” or sneakers with flat soles are considered acceptable footwear.  Golfers should bring some type of bottled water or drink that can fit into their bag during event days.  Drinks are available for purchase at the snack stand and clubhouse restaurant.  We will also provide water coolers on the course at holes #4, #8, #12 and #16.  It is very important that all golfers drink plenty of fluids throughout their round of golf to avoid dehydration, especially during the hot summer days.

PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD - The PJGA will present this award at the end of the season to the most deserving player during the PJGA season.  The Player of the Year is determined by a cumulative point system throughout the season.  Points are earned for simply attending events and practice days as well as for quality of play throughout the season.
