The 2nd Annual Academy cup will have guaranteed AJGA Performance Stars at stake regardless of the field size. This event is a two-day, 36-hole event. Both rounds will begin with a double tee start from 8:00-10:00 AM. Registration fee is $299. Opened in 1996, Celebration Golf Club is the final collaboration between Robert Trent Jones Senior and Junior. From the onset, their belief was that “every hole should be a hard par and an easy bogey.” Using their joint design strategies and the natural lay of the land, they crafted an upscale daily-fee golf resort that takes full advantage of the natural pine forests and Florida wetlands. The course radiates an atmosphere of beautiful tranquility and fun but challenging golf. The layout is protectively framed by borders of native trees and natural wetlands and speckled with clusters of native oaks, pine and magnolia trees. Featuring strategic hazards and challenging greens, this championship caliber course demands accurate approach shots and consistent putting. With five sets of tees, the course now stretches from 4,933 to a new total yardage of 7,028 and invites competition from all skill levels. Eighteen distinctive holes with Champion Dwarf Bermuda greens, presenting a great deal of variety and wildlife throughout make this truly a must-play for every Central Florida golfer.
Registration Deadline: October 1st
