The Southern Texas PGA Junior Golf Program was formed to introduce and provide youth in Southern Texas the opportunity to learn, play, and compete while playing golf. The program is open to juniors ages 6-18 and offers 5-hole, 9-hole, 18-hole, and 36-hole tournaments in a combination of five different tours.
A one-time membership fee of $80 is required in order to participate in the Southern Texas PGA Junior Golf Program. All memberships expire on December 31 of each year, regardless of when a junior becomes a member. We encourage all juniors to register at the beginning of the year. With your membership, members are able to play in all three series at no additional cost.
With your membership you will receive the following:
STPGA Tee Gift
USGA Rule Book or PGA Rules of Golf Summary Book
STPGA Bag Tag
Online Statistical Analysis and Scoring
A GHIN Handicap Index provided by the Texas Golf Association
The STPGA offers five different programs. Members are allowed to participate in any program that they are age eligible for. However, we encourage people to find the correct program for them and participate in that program until the juniors skill set is ready for the next step.
The Southern Texas PGA strongly believes that each player should remain in the same division throughout a specific season. Therefore, the age division that each player participates in will be determined by the age of the player when the season finishes.
The STPGA expects all member players, parents, and spectators to conduct themselves in an orderly manner.
Rules Violations: Violations of the Code of Conduct include, but are not limited to, cheating, abusive language, club throwing, disrespect toward Junior Golf volunteers, officials or staff members, abuse of a golf course in any manner, non-compliance with the dress code (see below), or any other conduct deemed unbecoming of a Southern Texas PGA Junior Golf Player.
Based on the severity of a violation, the STPGA may enforce on the individual involved a 2-stroke penalty, disqualification, and/or suspension from junior golf tournaments.
