The lowest team total (16 scores) on Sunday will take home the 1st Annual Academy Cup!

At stake in this event are opportunities to earn Junior Golf Scoreboard Rankings (JGS), and AJGA Performance Stars and even Golfweek Rankings. First place finishers in each division receive an automatic bid to the 2014 Tour Championship, held on December 6th-7th in Orlando, FL. Top 10 finishers receive points towards year end honors, including state teams, ALL HJGT teams, and the Hurricane Cup. This event is a two-day, 36 hole event.

Registration fees are $299 per player, including a practice round, 36 holes of tournament golf, hot lunch after the round on both days, and prizes! At Celebration Golf Club it’s all about you! Since opening for play in 1996, Orlando golf hasn’t been the same. We believe there is a difference between “playing” a golf course and “experiencing” the game of golf on a course that was inspired by its Old World legacy. Welcome to Celebration Golf Club, one of Orlando’s premier golf facilities. his design delivers a golfing experience that can challenge the pros and yet offer a rewarding time for juniors and those just learning the game. We call it Celebrating Golf at Every Level. As Robert Trent Jones put it like this, “With the beauty of the course, the design…everyone will have fun because it can be enjoyed here on many levels.” Celebration Golf Club Orlando, FL has hosted events such as the U.S. Senior Open Qualifier, Robert Gamez Celebrity Invitational, Florida State Public Links Championship, Buick Scramble National Championships, and The Golf Channel’s Drive, Chip and Putt Finals.
