Junior Golf Tournament Preview: April 20-21

Another great weekend of golf is in store on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. We have 6 tournaments across 5 states this weekend. Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee will all have tournaments this weekend, bringing a wide range of weather and competition to those tournaments. Let’s dive right in and look at what is coming up across the Hurricane Tour this weekend.

Innisbrook Resort
Innisbrook Resort, Palm Harbor, Florida

Innisbrook Spring Junior Open

The tournament weekend opens at a beautiful club in Florida that boasts four championship courses. One of which is the Copperhead course that has played host to the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship. This weekend, the Hurricane Tour will be using the South course which presents a beautiful scene to play 18 holes of golf. Be aware that there are many water hazards laid throughout the course especially those surrounding the 9th green. Being right by the Gulf of Mexico will prove to bring a beautiful golfing experience to those playing at Innisbrook this weekend.

The weather this weekend in Tampa is going to be hot. Both days of the tournament promise to test golfers with the heat. Saturday will be mostly sunny with a high of 89 degrees. Sunday will be similar with a few more clouds and a high of 88 degrees. The field for this weekend in Tampa is very full with 85 of 90 slots being taken. This big field will provide great competition down in Florida.

Kentucky Junior Open

In Kentucky, the Hurricane Tour will be playing at the Kearney Hills Golf Links in Lexington. The Kearney Hill Golf Links has been ranked as one of the top 10 courses in Kentucky and the course has hosted many esteemed golfing events throughout the years. There have been some great events held at Kearney Hills like the Senior PGA Tour, the Celebrity Players Tour, the PGA Junior Tour Series, and both the Men’s and Women’s Amateur Public Links Championships. Kearney Hill has an intriguing layout with not many trees throughout the course. While there is a lack of trees, there is no shortage of sand bunkers that are scattered across the course, and a few water hazards as well.

It will be a pleasant weekend in Lexington with both Saturday and Sunday having cloudy conditions. Saturday will be warmer with a high of 61 degrees. Sunday’s temperature will drop a little to 57 degrees. The field in Kentucky this weekend is full with 84 of the 90 slots being filled. Expect heavy competition across all the divisions this weekend.

Massachusetts Spring Junior Open

Next in Massachusetts, the Chicopee Country plays host to the Hurricane Tour. This course is the opposite of the course in Kentucky with plenty of trees and fewer bunkers throughout. The course is said to have fast, sloping greens so be aware of that for your putts. Only a couple of doglegs on this course with holes 2,4,10,13, and 17 being those. Hole 2 will be one of the more challenging holes with an almost 90-degree hook halfway through it. This course has been named in the top 100 Massachusetts golf courses. Due to the winter, the course just reopened at the beginning of April, so the Hurricane Tour will be one of the first tournaments played at the course.

The weather in Massachusetts this weekend will be great for golfing. Both days will be partly cloudy with Saturday having a high of 60 degrees. Sunday will cool down and have a high of 58 degrees. Looks to be a great weekend to golf in Massachusetts.

Nashville Spring Junior Open at Greystone

For our next tournament, we head over to beautiful Dickinson Tennessee to the Greystone Golf Club. The Greystone Golf Club has picturesque views throughout the course with lots of trees and vegetation around the course. Don’t let looks deceive you though as there are a couple of tricky par 5’s hiding throughout the course on holes 2,9,12, and 17. It is said that there are some tough elevation changes throughout the course so be wary of that as you play this course. This course sits only about a 45-minute drive from Nashville, so there are plenty of options to eat when you are done playing on this course.

The conditions this weekend in Tennessee will be fairly nice. Thursday and Friday have light rain rolling through so expect the course to be a little damp on Saturday when the tournament starts. But Saturday will be a great day for golf with a mostly cloudy sky and a high of 64 degrees. Sunday will be a little chillier with mostly cloudy skies and a high of 60 degrees. While the weather is nice, the competition will be fierce as there is another almost full field with 87 of the 90 available slots being filled. Best of luck on this beautiful course with the heavy competition.

Pennsylvania Spring Junior Open

Over in York Pennsylvania, the Heritage Hills Golf Resort plays host to the Hurricane Tour. This course is another beauty with plenty of trees and some water hazards that will keep you on your toes throughout the round. There are very few bunkers scattered throughout the course and most of the holes play straight. The water hazards only play a major factor on holes 13 and 17 so be aware of those on your journey on the back 9. You will have to contend with the hilly terrain, particularly on the par-3 5th and par-4 16th holes, which have the most dramatic elevation changes. This course has plenty of challenges by itself and with 70 of the 90 available spots taken, there will also be challenges with the competition.

Come ready to play in York this weekend. In good news, the weather will be great for golfing with mostly cloudy skies throughout the day. Saturday will be perfect with a high of 64 degrees and Sunday will be a little colder with a high of 60 degrees. All of these conditions line up for a great weekend of tournament play in York.

PGA National Spring Junior Open

The last tournament of the weekend belongs to the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Florida. There are 6 amazing courses at the PGA National Resort and the Hurricane Tour will be playing on the Fazio this weekend. This course is said to have a mix of classical with modern architecture throughout the course while the course plays to all skill levels. It has been said that the par-5 4th hole is one of the most challenging holes on all 6 of the resort’s courses. The third hole has a severe right dogleg that will bring some challenges to our golfers this weekend. While it may be a beautiful course, it is also one of the tougher ones on the tour. Bring your A-game to Palm Beach this weekend. Out of 90 slots, 84 have been filled and there will be some exciting play across all the divisions as this course will challenge everyone.

It will be a hot weekend in Palm Beach coming up with both Saturday and Sunday expected to be fully sunny. Both of those days will have temperatures reach 85 degrees, so make sure to bring plenty of water while you navigate this challenging course.
