What is the Barcovan Golf Club’s PGA Junior League Golf?

This is a fun, interactive opportunity for boys and girls aged 16 and under to learn and enjoy the game of golf. A minimum age of 9 years old is suggested, experience is necessary. An assessment will be completed by Coach Linda or Coach Paul for any youth under the suitable age.

The concept of the league is set up similar to any other recreational sports team, there will be 10-12 participants play on each team. It will be a scramble format which creates learning, team environment both on and off the golf course.

The main focus of this program is to have fun, recreational involvement, good health, and sportsmanship. This program acts as a feeder system for recreational youth golfers into more competitive golfing endeavors.

How Does Barcovan PGA Junior League Golf Work?

Format includes:

  • 24-28 players (2 equal teams will be created)
  • Scramble format – 2 players from each team play a best ball challenge against 2 players from the other team Players will be flighted based on ability at our second assessment session
  • The goal is to play as many holes as we can – when the horn blows wherever you are you finish and come in and total up points.
  • There is also an individual competition that runs throughout the year based on matches played.


All players will be assigned a range time each week prior to their tee time. Our junior coaching will be focused on strong fundamentals and each junior will be given drills to improve and develop powerful athletic movements based on their golf swing.

For your junior to improve each week, we suggest they practice what drills they have be given before the next class.

– Operation Par

Introducing Operation Par – This new initiative will be used in conjunction with our popular scramble format.
depending on skill level, some players will play their holes from close distances (25, 50, 100,125, or 150 yards ). The goal is to make shooting Par a very attainable feat. This helps increase fun and confidence in young players. If players can shoot Par from a certain distance, they get to move back 25 more yards the following week. The goal is to reward, yet challenge young golfers in their pursuit to shoot Par.
