Junior Golf


Mission: Our Junior Golf Program is designed to serve the evolving needs of families and ensure that the children we introduce to the game develop the foundation necessary to enjoy playing golf for the rest of their lives.


The objective of the Junior Golf Program is to provide our children with the opportunity to learn the skills and etiquette of golf and create an environment for them to develop a love of the game.

Mendham Golf & Tennis Club has incorporated learning tees throughout the golf course. These tees are designed to encourage the introduction and retention of junior golfers into this great game. Juniors, based on their skill level, will be encouraged to play from a designated tee color. After shooting a “target score” or better twice from their current tees, they will graduate to the next color. With the introduction of the Learning Tees, we believe that our juniors will have the opportunity to have a sense of accomplishment and progression without being overwhelmed by the difficulties of a full length golf course.

MG & TC participated for the first time in 2015.  At its core, PGA Junior League Golf is a group of local golf teams from area clubs who play a series of games against each other, utilizing a nurturing and social 2 player scramble format. Games are 9 holes with each 3-hole increment being worth a “flag” (or point). The program is available to boys and girls, 13 and under, of all abilities. Our PGA Professionals serve as Captains and are responsible for creating a welcoming environment for all that encourages skill and character development.  Parental assistance is encouraged for walking with players and is required for transportation to away games.  Similar to other youth sports, team members wear uniforms, have practices, and division winners move on to Regional play and a National Championship is held.  More information is available at http://www.pgajlg.com/format.  League play will be between late May and late June at times arranged with the other Clubs in our divisions (to be announced late Spring).
