Top 10 finishers receive points towards year end honors which include state teams, ALL HJGT teams, and the Hurricane Cup.

Each academy must be able to field a team of 8-10 players however they are welcome to bring more.

The academy is welcome to bring any combination of boys and girls that they would like to compete.

Opening 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.” 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. This 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.” This is truly a special course and not one to be missed!
