RELEASE: MAPGA Girls Junior PGA Championship

The 2017 Middle Atlantic Section Girls Junior PGA Championship will take place June 29-30 at the U.S. Naval Academy Golf Course in Annapolis, Md.

The champion will have the opportunity to join 144 of the nation’s top female junior golfers in the PGA of America’s premium junior event, the 42nd Girls Junior PGA Championship, hosted at The Country Club of St. Albans in St. Albans, Missouri. The Country Club of St. Albans has consistently been ranked in the Top 10 courses in the state of Missouri by Golf Digest and looks to be a fantastic venue for the event. The Girls Junior PGA Championship will be held from July 18-21, 2017.

This year’s Championship will have twice the field size of previous years. This means each of the 41 PGA of America Sections will receive two invitations. One for the MAPGA Section Girls Junior Champion and the other for a MAPGA Section At-Large Bid.

Juniors must be no older than 18 years of age on July 21, 2017.

The Girls Junior PGA Championship is where some of the best in the world get their start. Many of today’s LPGA Tour professionals made their debut at the Championship. Notable past participants include Inbee Park, Lexi Thompson, Cristie Kerr, Grace Park, Michelle Wie, and Dottie Pepper.
