Growing Junior Golf in Maine

Together with the Maine PGA, New England PGA, Maine Principals Association, and Maine Golf Course Superintendents Association, the Maine State Golf Association works to promote junior golf statewide.

We offer many events to introduce children especially those who might not otherwise hear about the opportunities to learn what we do. In the past we have hosted Junior Golf open houses and have attended the Kidaballoo in different locations across the state.

These events are designed to let juniors know all that Maine golf has to offer. Golfers aged 5-18 are invited to attend these events, with their parents, to determine which program are right for them. When possible we will partner with member clubs to showcase junior golf offerings.

At the open houses, juniors have opportunities to demo junior equipment and players can sign up for various programs, such as Drive, Chip and Putt, PGA Jr. League and/or NEPGA Maine Junior Tour events.

We encourage all golf clubs to share junior opportunities with us and we will spread the word! We have a comprehensive junior schedule along with an ever-growing email contact list of potential junior golfers. We welcome the opportunity to work together to make all junior programs successful.
