WILLIAMS, Ariz. — Registration has begun for PGA Junior League Golf as the program returns to Elephant Rocks Golf Course.

Young golfers in Williams are part of the northern Arizona leagues, which consists of other teams from Flagstaff.

The matches are made up of boys and girls, age 13 and younger, who are put into teams of two.

The program uses a two-person scramble format for competition, which reinforces the team concept and creates a nurturing environment for learning the game. Teams play four, nine-hole matches in a game; captains can substitute players every three holes, allowing everyone on the team a chance to participate. Teams typically play between four-to-six games in the regular season, which runs from May-July.

PGA and LPGA professionals lead the program, providing kids with expert coaching and instruction. With parents and family members encouraged to assist as coaches and volunteers, PGA Junior League Golf involves the entire family and introduces them to an all-ages sport they can play and enjoy together for a lifetime.
