About the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) was founded in 2007 with the intention of providing junior golfers between the ages of 8-18 an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment. The tour’s vision is to provide superb hospitality and make every event a memorable one. With play open to both males and females, nearly every junior golfer is eligible to participate on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. Currently the HJGT is the largest junior golf tour in the United States hosting more 2-day nationally ranked events than any other tour. The HJGT has been able to achieve this goal by running the most professional events and providing an exceptional value to all of our players and families over the last 13 years. There are several factors that set us apart from the competition which we call #thehurricanedifference.
Based out of Orlando, FL, the HJGT administers events all across the country. In 2020, the HJGT will conduct events in Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin. Juniors will compete in 1 of 6 divisions which are: Boys 16-18, Boys 14-15, Boys 11-13, Boys under 10, Girls 14-18, and Girls Under 13. Memberships for the 2020 season start at $299 and tournament fees start at $189 for members.
In 2017, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour announced a one of a kind partnership with NEXUS, an international hospitality and entertainment company backed by financier Joe Lewis and Tavistock Group, golfing great Tiger Wood and Ernie Els, and actor and musician Justin Timberlake. This unique combination between Hurricane Junior Golf Tour and NEXUS Luxury Collection was established to further our collective goal of growing the game of golf, as well as broadening the Tour’s reach across the U.S. and around the world.
