(June 24th-25th 2017)
On June 24th 2017 the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Tempe, Arizona to host the College Prep Series at Arizona State at Karsten Golf Course. We would like to thank the Karsten Golf Course for allowing us to host this wonderful event at their facility. It was an extremely warm weekend in Tempe and the course was very fast and that led to some quality scoring conditions. This led to some low scores and some great competitions across all age groups.
