At PGA Jr. League, we stand for togetherness – bringing friends, families, and communities together around the great game of golf with their PGA and LPGA Coaches. We celebrate high-fives, team cheers, large galleries, pizza parties and more. Social connection is the heart and soul of the program, and it’s why we’re reaching out to you again with an update on the season.
To bring these foundational principles to life, we developed the “Three Flags” that serve as our commitment to parents, players, and the PGA Jr. League community at large 1) Safety; 2) Care; & 3) Organization, in that priority order.
On March13th, we released a statement encouraging each league to follow local, county, and national health authorities. Since then, two important developments have occurred:
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) made the following announcement on March 15 – “Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers
(whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.” This reflects almost all PGA Jr. League games.
The next day, the White House released “The President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America” which includes “avoiding social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people.” This reflects all PGA Jr. League events.
In light of these announcements, and to stay true to our values of safety and togetherness, we are aligning with the CDC’s recommended timeframe and postponing the PGA Jr. League season until May 10th.
We look at this similarly to a weather delay and are taking a number of proactive steps to ensure a successful season while we wait to get our teams
back on the course.
