Maine Golf is committed to promoting junior golf throughout the state by exposing new players to the game, encouraging existing players, and growing the game of golf for the next generation. Whether through initiatives of our own or working with other golf organizations in the region, we aim to make playing golf in Maine as fun and accessible as possible to young golfers here in our state.

Opportunities abound for players looking to enter the game of golf whether for instruction, fun, play or competitive tournaments in the region. Below is a “road map” of golfer opportunities at all levels and all ages. Should you have any questions, please email Joe at


We empower girls through the game of golf and inspire them to dream BIG…

LPGA*USGA Girls Golf (Girls Golf) is the only national junior golf program that specializes in providing girl-friendly environments for juniors to learn the game of golf. We’re the experts in making the game of golf fun, and we teach more than just stance and swing; we teach girls valuable life skills like confidence and perseverance.

Each of our 500 Girls Golf sites help prepare girls ages 6 – 17 for a lifetime of enjoyment of the game while also inspiring them to feel confident, build positive self-esteem and live active and healthy lives through The Five E’s of Girls Golf.
