Game Development Starts Here
Originally founded in 2011 as the Oconee Junior Golf League, the NGJG League operates each Spring, Summer, and Fall. The League is open to players in Elementary and Middle School, and includes an Elementary School division and Middle School Team division. Emphasizing team camaraderie and competition, the League is great way for young players to make new friends and have fun while developing their golf game! This program is the starting point for “on-course” play for ALL skill levels after a player has been introduced to the basics through individual lessons or attending a camp/clinic.
The League is structured in a team format, whereby groups of 4-5 players (boys and girls teams) are matched up together to form the team in either the Elementary School Division or the Middle School Division. Middle School division players are paired together from the same middle school (including 9th graders from the appropriate feeder high school). Not affiliated with a local middle school? NO PROBLEM! We will place you on a team of other Middle School players to help them fill the team. Each team has an adult coach that guides the group during the matches, as well as any practices that are set up. Through our League + Academy option, players can sign up for discounted instruction from a local teaching pro in a group-clinic structure, providing hands-on guidance on the basic fundamentals of the game.
Matches are played once per week for 8 weeks in our Spring and Fall sessions, and 4 weeks in our Summer session. Juniors play from age appropriate yardages. Elementary division teams play a Scramble format, and Middle School groups play a “Super-Scramble” where each player plays his/her own ball with stroke limits in place. Each team plays its matches at a set day and time each week, and you can choose your preferred night to play, teammate preferences, etc. At the end of the season, teams with the lowest cumulative scores in each Division are determined to be the winning team for the season and receive prizes/trophies.
The NGJG League serves as a starting point for young junior golfers to learn and develop their game on the course after they have been introduced to the basics through a lesson or clinics/camps. Most League players also decide to join the NGJG Tour to compete on an individual level. Together, the NGJG Tour and the NGJG League have become one of the top junior golf development programs in Georgia.
