Falcons Fire GC at Kissimmee, FL

(June 4-6, 2016)

Golf Never Stops

  On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Orlando, FL to host the 54 Hole Challenge at the stunning Falcons Fire Golf Club. Sunshine was abundant on the first round, June 4, temperatures reaching high 90s while the next two days included rain in the forecast. The HJGT would like to thank the Falcons Fire staff for allowing us to host our tournament at a great venue. AJGA Performance Stars were up for grabs this weekend, the top three winners in each age division were awarded an exemption into the 2016 Tour Championship December 3-4, 2016, and the top ten finishers also received points towards year-end honors. Once that first tee shot sored through the air, the golfers were ready to put their clubs to the ball and make their mark on the course.
