Levels of Play
Levels of Play
The NTPGA Team Golf initiative was inspired by the successful junior golf programs and junior golf teams formed by several NTPGA facilities and professionals. Team Golf is for junior golfers ages 7-14 with beginning level golf experience and offers an introduction to tournament play through 9-hole team Stroke Play competition. Team Golf serves as a fun, social, less stressful approach to tournament golf, and provides junior golfers with knowledge and skills that set the stage for a lifetime of golf enjoyment. To participate in Team Golf tournaments, it is recommended that junior golfers and their parents/guardians contact their local PGA Golf Professional who serves as a Team Golf coach.
