The New England PGA Junior Tour, founded in 1995, established a goal to help develop younger golfers as well as provide outstanding competitions on a local level. In addition, this program strives to foster sportsmanship and integrity among its members .The growth of the program has been phenomenal, and today the program consists of over 800 junior golfers and a schedule of more than 100 junior tournaments per season.
The MSGA’s mission is to promote and serve the best interests of golf in the state of Maine, and for the past 20 years they have enjoyed a very active and well attended junior golf program with a full tournament schedule starting in June and continuing into August.
