The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour is excited to continue their College Prep Series the weekend of April 6-7 at the University of South Florida. The event is the College Prep Series at South Florida and it will take place at The Claw at South Florida. There is a lot to play for in this tournament including extra points towards year-end honors such as All-HJGT Teams and the Hurricane Cup. Instead of the typical 1,000 points for winning the event 1,500 points will be awarded and points will be awarded to the top fifteen finishers instead of the top ten. Winners of all four divisions will be rewarded with an automatic bid to the 2013 Tour Championship. Winners of the both boy’s divisions and the girl’s 15-18 age division will be awarded a Florida Junior Tour Exemption. Winners of the boy’s 15-18 division and the girl’s 15-18 age division will be given four performance stars for the AJGA which will result in an exemption for an event. The tournament will be a typical two day event with 18 holes of stroke play golf on both days. Players will be started off both the first and tenth tees on both days with tee times starting at noon on Saturday and 7:30 am on Sunday. Registration will begin one hour before the start of Saturday’s round. As is typical for HJGT events there will be four divisions including two boy’s (11-14 & 15-18) and two girl’s divisions (11-14 & 15-18). The top three finishers in each division will be rewarded with a trophy. The player with the most birdies in each division will be given an EFX Bracelet and the player who improves the most over the two days will be given a set of Golf Pride Grips. Registration is $179 for members and $199 for non-members. Register online at www.hjgt.org. According to their website, http://www.theclawatusfgolf.com/index.php, The Claw at USF is one of the most challenging public courses in the Tampa area. The course features long, narrow fairways lined with cypresses, oaks, and pines. On top of all this the course also features much wildlife including alligators.
