The PGA REACH Western New York Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and philanthropic arm of the Western New York PGA Section, one of the 41 sections in the United States of America. Our members from across Buffalo, Rochester, and Erie are committed to serving our communities and growing the game of golf through our three pillars- Youth, Military, and Inclusion.
PGA Jr. League is a fun, social, and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls, ages 17 & under, to enjoy the game of golf. Like other recreational youth sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with friends. Our Western New York PGA Professionals captain teams in a popular two-person scramble format which reinforces the team concept and creates a nurturing environment for learning the game of golf. More than 550 juniors across the Western New York PGA Section participate in this entry point to the game.
