This tournament is open to all junior golfers between the ages of 11-18. Being played at the scenic Callaway Gardens Mountain View Golf Course, this tournament has plenty at stake. The champion in each division will win AJGA Performance Stars if their respective field size requirements are met. National Junior Golf Scoreboard rankings will be awarded as well as South Carolina Junior Golf Association Heritage Points. Winners in each division will receive an automatic bid into the HJGT 2014 Tour Championship. Additionally, the top 10 finishers will receive points towards year end honors, state teams, ALL HJGT teams and the Hurricane Cup. The Callaway Gardens Junior Challenge will be a 36-hole stroke play event. The first round will begin on Saturday with a double tee start running from 8:30AM-10:30AM. The final round will also be a double tee start on Sunday with times ranging from 8:30AM-10AM. The registration fee is $185 for members and $215 for non-members. For 2014 membership information please refer to our website. Callaway Gardens presents a challenging but playable layout that will test the young golfers strategic and shot making abilities. The Mountain View course was home to the PGA Tour’s Buick Challenge for a dozen years. Designed by Dick Wilson, architect of Chicago’s renowned Cog Hill No. 4, the course has stunning landscapes and large water elements. The threat of water looms over both tee and approach shots on sixth hole, ranked as the fourth most difficult par 5 on the PGA Tour by USA Today. Additionally, the tight fairways are lined by towering pines and lush shrubbery. Callaway Gardens is also former Golf Digest “Places to Play” four-star winner.
