PGA Junior League brings family and friends together around fun, team golf experiences with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals.

Boys and girls of all backgrounds and skill levels learn and play together in a supportive, two-person scramble format that encourages mentorship, builds confidence, and promotes sportsmanship.

With 42,000 participants in 2017 – and Ambassadors including Rory McIlroy, Michelle Wie, Rickie Fowler, and Lexi Thompson – PGA Junior League has wide-ranging appeal for both youth and their parents.

Bella Vista offers two, four-day camps during the summer months. All junior golfers age 6 and up are welcome to attend. The PGA golf professionals of the POA instruct each class and they cover all aspects of the game including driving, iron play, chipping, putting, bunkers, rules, and etiquette. Each week-long camp costs $135 per junior and is capped off with a pool and pizza party on the last day.

Junior golfers aged six and up are welcome to play all Bella Vista courses. The 18-hole, walking rate for a junior golfer is $9 for guests, $7 for members without an Activity Card, and $5 for members with an Activity Card. This rate is good all day, at all courses. Golf cart rental fees are extra and carts can only be rented to those juniors who have a valid driver’s license.
