The PAL-Dr. Charles L. Sifford Junior Golf Program is for youth boys and girls ages ten (10 – seventeen (17) years of age. This junior golf program is in place to introduces youth to the game of golf. They will learn the rules of the game, as well as, the basic and intermediate fundamentals of the game.
The programs committed volunteers will engage youth in teaching proper golf grip, swing, stance and equally important, golf etiquette, whether on the golf course or while practicing. Volunteers take great pride in their role of serving as role models and mentors for each of the enrolled youth in the Police Activities League. Our success is measured by the success of our kids’ accomplishments.
The Police Activities League would like to acknowledge the family of Dr. Charles L. Sifford for allowing PAL to recognize this great pioneer and humanitarian of the game golf. Prior to the passing of Dr. Sifford, who was the first African American Professional PGA Golf Tour player, he spoke of wanting to give back to future generations of youth the gift of golf. So it is with this spirit in mind that PAL recognizes him and his legacy by naming our Junior Golf Program after him.
Golf registration begins each year around May 1st. After being or becoming a current year PAL Member, there is a $10.00 golf program registration fee.
