Junior Golf

The Middle Atlantic PGA Reaches more than 2,500 junior golfers annually. We believe that the values and skills learned through junior golf can positively impact a child for the rest of their life. We accomplish this by offering six different tournament programs that not only help grow this great game but teach kids the value of integrity and sportsmanship.

MAPGA Tournament Protocol Update

With the recent announcement from the CDC and the new state guidelines, we are moving to a more “normal” atmosphere at our events.   Starting June 2nd, the MAPGA will lift most of the COVID Protocols for events.

We will still follow the host facilities guidelines at our events.  All tournament protocols that were put in place for COVID have been lifted except for the following:

  • Do not play if you feel sick or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last two weeks.
  • Food and Beverage offerings will be decided by each host facility.  It is still up to the host facility but we will now try to include F&B.
  • During a stoppage of play, players have the option to now wait in the clubhouse (depending on the facility).  It is still a good idea to stay separated in the clubhouse.

Some information that has been lifted includes:

  • Players can show up anytime to practice
  • Shotgun starts will now be allowed
  • There will be no restrictions on touching flagsticks, etc.
  • Items in the starter boxes (pencils, markers, tees, etc.) will return
