Junior Golf Tournament Preview: June 1-2

Welcome to this week’s junior golf tournament preview for June 1-2! We saw some amazing golf over Memorial Day Weekend and I’m sure that will carry into the first weekend of June. This would be a perfect weekend to go from the course to the pool with hopefully a first-place finish to celebrate! Let’s look ahead to the eight tournaments taking place across eight unique states.

Buffalo Grove Junior Open

We kick off this weekend in Buffalo Grove, Illinois which is just an hour ride north of Chicago. There will be some elite competition at the Buffalo Grove Golf Course which features gently rolling terrain covered with mature trees and wetlands. Players will have the opportunity to shoot for some low scores as the course can be pretty tricky in some spots but overall it’s a forgiving and player-friendly layout. 

One hole that players will definitely want to be on the lookout for is the fifth hole which features a 536-yard par-five. The hole features a dogleg right and five different bunkers that make it a real challenge for a golfer of any skill level. There is also a creek that runs along the entire right side of the hole so my advice to golfers is that it’s better to miss left into a bunker than end up there.

The weather in Buffalo Grove this weekend will only get better as the weekend goes on. On Saturday there is a small chance for showers throughout the day and a high of 73 degrees. Sunday should fare much better for the junior golfers as it will be partly cloudy and will have a high of 77 degrees. 

Kingsmill Junior Open

For the next tournament, we head down south to Williamsburg, Virginia where the beautiful Kingsmill Country Club is set. The Plantation Golf Course is where the golfers will be teeing off and it features landmarks from Richard Kingsmill’s 1736 plantation woven into the landscape. This 6,432-yard, par 72 course is an Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay design that favors accurate iron play and good putting.

The golfers better be dialed in early this weekend as you don’t want to make any missteps on the challenging fourth hole. It is a 403-yard par-four that features a dogleg left and a large lake that dares aggressive golfers to try their luck and shoot over it. I recommend playing it safe and making it out of the hole with a par if possible.

Williamsburg is set up for a near-perfect weekend of golf coming up this weekend. Saturday has a high of 81 degrees and should be sunny throughout the day. Sunday will have more cloud coverage but will be slightly hotter with a high of 82 degrees. 

Major Championship at Crosswinds

We head up to the North-East where some of the best junior golfers will look to compete at the Crosswinds Golf Club in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This historic city is set to see some historically low scores this weekend. Featuring 27 holes of golf, Crosswinds offers a unique blend of rolling fairways and large gently undulating greens. The golfers this weekend will be competing on the Zaharias/Jones course which features a slope rating of 140. 

While there will be no easy holes this weekend at Crosswinds, hole five will present a real challenge for the junior golfers. It is a 550-yard par-five that features a dogleg left and plenty of difficult bunkers around the green. Be sure to not allow this demanding hole to tank your score this weekend.

Cool-weather can be expected in Plymouth this weekend. Saturday will have a high of 70 degrees and should be sunny for most of the day. Sunday will be partly cloudy and will have a high of 73 degrees. This weather is perfect for plenty of low scores to take place this weekend!

Major Championship at Village Golf Course

For the next tournament, we head all the way south to Royal Palm Beach, Florida. The Village Golf course is set to host some worthy competitors as they are all shooting for that first-place finish. The Village is a parkland style par 72 championship layout set on 175 acres of uninterrupted lush South Florida terrain, featuring premium Jones Dwarf Bermuda grass greens.

Designed by Mark Mahannah in 1973, the Village combines trees, doglegs, water, and bunkers to create a visually appealing variety of holes that force golfers to use their entire repertoire of clubs. It is best that golfers beware of the twelfth hole as it is no joke for a golfer of any skill level. It is a 350-yard par-four that features a very narrow fairway and a dogleg right. A very accurate shot off the tee box is required if you want to score well on this hole. 

It is going to be a hot one this weekend in Royal Palm Beach. Saturday will have a high of 87 degrees and will be partly cloudy. Sunday will be very similar with a high of 87 degrees and will be sunny throughout the day.  I would recommend to begin hydrating for the weekend right now!

Major Championship at Weissinger Hills

We head up to horse country for our next tournament in Shelbyville, Kentucky which is just a short 30-minute ride from Louisville. The Weissinger Hills Golf Course will host some intense competition this weekend. The course is known for being the “Best in Shelby County” for the past 8 years in a row making it one of the finest public courses in the Louisville area! 

You better be ready to go out the gates here as the second hole is known for giving golfers a lot of trouble. It is a long 456-yard par-four that requires some good power off the tee box. Thankfully the hole is pretty wide open until you get closer to the green where there are two separate lakes off to the left. If you can do well on this hole then you are set up for a great round.

The weather in Shelbyville this weekend will present a real challenge for all golfers this weekend. Saturday will have a high of 82 degrees and will have some afternoon showers. Unfortunately, the rain continues into Sunday with a high of 78 degrees. A rain jacket and an umbrella are a must for this weekend.

New Jersey Junior Open

There will be plenty of competition coming up to Flanders, New Jersey this weekend. Flanders Valley Golf Club will have 69 ready junior golfers who will be hunting for a first-place finish. Flanders Valley’s Blue-to-White is a tree-lined, traditional golf course playing at a Par 72 and tipping out at 6765 yards.

Be sure to be on the lookout for the signature fifth hole; a slight dogleg left 379-yard par-four that demands a perfectly placed tee shot. There is a pond on the left which is very much in play staring at you from the tee box. Missing right will have you in the trees as the rolling hills slope away from the narrow fairway. Don’t fret, there are many holes that you will be able to score on! 

The weather in Flanders this weekend is ideal for some amazing golf. Saturday will be sunny with a high of 77 degrees. Sunday will be almost identical with a high of 77 degrees but will be partly cloudy. There will also be very little wind making it perfect conditions to hit some low scores. 

North Georgia Junior Open at The Chimney’s

We head down south to Winder, Georgia which is just a short 30-minute drive west from Athens. There is a full stack of 63 junior golfers which means you need to bring your best game to Chimney’s Golf Course if you want to come out on top. The Chimneys Golf Course features 18 holes of exceptional golf. Their signature feature is the abundance of native rock found on-site, intricately hand-laid throughout to accent our greens, fairways, and pedestal tees. With strict attention to detail as one of the top-rated courses in the state, The Chimneys plays to a par 72, 6384 yards over five sets of tees to accommodate golfers of all abilities.

The eleventh hole is considered by many the signature hole at The Chimneys. The hole is guarded by six rock-faced bunkers that make a real challenge for any golfer.  A tee shot to the center of the green rewards golfers on this challenging par 3.

There may be some unpredictable weather in Winder this weekend. Saturday will have a high of 81 degrees and will be partly cloudy. Things take a turn for the worse on Sunday when there is a high of 82 degrees, but there are scattered thunderstorms happening throughout the day.

Summer College Prep Series at Penn State

The last tournament this weekend takes place in State College, Pennsylvania. The Penn State Golf Club will have an absolutely packed field as they are set to host 103 elite junior golfers. All players will be teeing off from the Blue course which bolsters a par-72 and 7,214 yards. This course will provide a real challenge as it is the same one that the student-athletes at Penn State compete on. 

Players better be sharp early in the round as once they get to the third hole it can be a tall task for any golfer. The 480-yard par-four requires an extremely accurate shot off the tee box to be able to land in the narrow fairway. The dogleg right adds an extra layer of a challenge for golfers along with the two fairway bunkers and three greenside bunkers. If you can make it past this hole you are set up for a great round of golf!

 The weather at State College this weekend may add an extra obstacle for junior golfers. Saturday will be quite nice with a high of 78 degrees and will be partly cloudy. Sunday will have a high of 75 degrees but there is a chance for some rain showers later in the day.
