Junior Golf Program
The Pitman Golf Course was proud to host 3 PGA Jr League Teams. This past season we had two 13u teams and one 17u team.
Our All Star Team competed in the Philadelphia Section Championships where we won our match against the kids from Team Philadelphia with a Flag Score of 8 to 4. We lost our next round of matches to the Team from North Philly by a score of 7.5 to 4.5 - it was a great experience for our all star selections and we are already looking foward to the opportunity to get back at it next year!
The PGA Jr League features a fun format that kids of all ability levels can enjoy. Two players are paired up and they play a "scramble" format for golf against two other kids from area golf courses.
The Pitman Golf Course will be recruiting players for the 2020 season starting as early as January. Keep checking the website for details or email our Head PGA Golf Professional directly for more information; Orist Wells, email@example.com
2019 Season (June through August):
Congratulations to Jake Kowalski for winning his 2nd consecutive PJGA Player of the Year Award!
This year's Player of the Year contest was closely contested all throughout the summer program with three players battling it out; Jake Kowalksi, Nick Dipietro and Matt Ciocco. The final results were tallied and Jake had earned 633 points, Matt finished with 631 points and Nick had 619 points.
The PJGA (Pitman Junior Golf Association) is a summer program for experienced junior golfers ages 13 through 17. The PJGA holds a dedicated practice day every Tuesday and the junior golfers play a competition round every Thursday. The program will conclude in August with the Annual PJGA Invitation Tournament where the Player of the Year will be awarded. Pictured to the left is our Head PGA Golf Professional (Orist Wells) presenting the 2019 PJGA Player of the Year Trophy to Jake Kowalski.
This program will help to further develop golf skills through weekly practice, drills, playing 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 competition days.
For more information, feel free to contact the Pro Shop at 856-589-6688. Official sign-ups for the 2020 season will begin on June 1st.
