First Tee Tour + PGA Jr. League Edition

The 2024 Race for The Campbell Cup!

First Tee Tour – PGA Jr League Edition is Here!

An opportunity that allows junior golfers to learn the game through a fun, inclusive, team-oriented, tournament play.

History + Overview

In 2021, we celebrated 25 years of golf at The Children’s Course! The celebration included a name change to The Campbell Course after our founders, Duncan and Cindy Campbell, along with a beautiful new facility in Gladstone. To continue the celebration, we launched our first ever competitive and fun First Tee Tour, “The Race for The Campbell Cup”! Now in its fourth year, we are combining our series with the PGA Jr. League. The series is comprised of 10 practice experiences and 5 PGA Jr League Matches delivered between late June and late August.

What is PGA Jr. League?

PGA Jr. League is changing the way young golfers interact with the game of golf! Through a fun, inclusive and social community, youth learn and enjoy golf through a fun, team-oriented approach. Like many other recreational youth sports, participants wear jerseys and play on teams with friends. 

Each team is broken down into two-person pairs who play together in games. All games are played in a two-person scramble format with the utilization of match-play scoring. 

Who can play?

The league is open to all youth, ages 7-13. Some golf experience or knowledge is highly recommended however tournament experience or advanced skills is not necessary. This is an opportunity to learn about competitive golf in a fun, relaxed environment where youth will learn just as much about themselves as they will the game of golf!

What is the cost and how do I register?

Cost for the season is $240. The fee includes a $99 PGA Fee and a $141 Coaching Fee.  As with any of our youth programs, Financial Aid is available with information related to eligibility requested when registering.

How to Earn Points

Despite the new twist, we are still racing for The Campbell Cup! The First Tee Tour is more than just golf and operates on a points system similar to other major golf tours. There are multiple ways to earn points such as practicing outside of matches and experiences as well as community service. At the conclusion of the season, the participant with the most points will be presented with “The Campbell Cup”!

How does it work? Using the point system outlined below, participants report all points by emailing [email protected]. Points should be reported on a monthly basis within the first seven days of the following month (e.g. all points earned in the month of June must be reported by July 7th). First Tee – Greater Portland staff will award all points earned in First Tee Tour events (1st place, 2nd place, etc.).

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is the sole Responsibility of the Participants to report all points earned outside of First Tee Tour events.
