Pitman Junior Golf Association
The Pitman Junior Golf Association (PJGA) is getting ready to start another summer golf program for experienced junior golfers ages 13 through 17. This is a great summer league to enter if you play high school golf or local junior tournaments. The program is designed to further enhance the skills of the players with weekly drills, practice, play, and competition throughout the week. New participants will be required to pass a written rules and etiquette test as well as a playing ability test (pace of play) prior to being permitted to enter the league competition of the program. This is to show the required level of knowledge to play without the direct assistance of the staff during the summer program. The program is to be informative and fun.
- Monday, June 1st - Registration Opens (call the pro shop, 856-589-6688)
- Starting June 23rd- Every Tuesday, Instruction and Practice
- Starting July 2nd - Every Thursday, PJGA Official Competitions
- Thursday, August 20th - End Of The Year Bring A Parent Tournament
What to Bring- All golfers will need their own set of clubs and each junior golfer is required to carry their bag or they may use a pull cart. The dress code for all juniors is 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 acceptable footwear. All junior golfers should bring some type of bottled water or drink that can be carried in their bag. Water can be purchased at the snack stand, or the Pro Shop. This is a must to drink plenty of fluids during the rounds, during the hot summer months, to prevent dehydration. Water stations are on the course on hole #4, #8, #12 and #16. Cost - $185 per junior golfer and this fee includes all associated costs with the summer program; Instruction, Range Balls, Green Fees, Prizes, Parent/Child Tournament and each junior will also receive a Junior County Discount Golf ID Card that they can use on off days to save money on daily green fee rates at Pitman GC.
Congratulations to Kevin Larson for his outstanding commitment to this year's PJGA season! Kevin won the Player of the Year by accumulating more than 500 points throughout the summer season. The Pitman Junior Golf Association (PJGA) awards points to each player based on their participation and accomplishments during the season. Points are awarded during the Practice Day sessions as well as the Event Days. Players can earn bonus points by winning skills competitions, taking rules quizzes and through their finish positions in the weekly events.
This year Kevin grabbed the early lead and never looked back. He outpaced Joe Bulman (482.5 pts) and Eric Schwindt (480 pts) the entire season as both these players were in hot pursuit. Kevin was presented with the Official Player of the Year Trophy before the final event which included the parents.
This year's group was a pleasure to have at the course every Tuesday and Thursday. They were all well mannered, played quickly and displayed excellent golf course etiquette.
