The weekend of March 23-24 the HJGT will be making a return to a favorite stop on tour, the beautiful Island of Hilton Head, SC. The event is the Hilton Head Jr. Shootout which will be held in Bluffton at the highly esteemed Eagle’s Pointe Golf Club. The event will be ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard and in addition will provide players with necessary exposure to play golf at the collegiate level with the National Scouting Report (NSR) on site. Multiple incentives will be available to players at this event: The winner of the boys and girls 15-18 age division will take home 4 AJGA performance stars which are equivalent to one exemption into an AJGA event. Top ten finishers will receive points towards the year-end Hurricane Cup as well as the All-HJGT teams. Winners of the event will also earn a bid to the 2013 Tour Championship. Lastly the winner of the Bridgestone Challenge will receive one dozen Bridgestone B330 series golf balls and a Bridgestone hat (tour members only). The tournament format for the weekend will consist of typical 36-hole stroke play format. First round tee times and pairings will be released by 6:00PM the Wednesday prior to the event. The event will be a double tee start on both days with Saturday tee times beginning at 12:30PM and ending at 2:30PM. Sunday tee times will begin slightly earlier at 7:30AM and end at 9:30AM. The awards ceremony will follow Sunday after the round where the top three will receive trophies. The comeback player of the weekend and the individual with the most birdies through the weekend will receive gifts as well. The Eagle’s Pointe Golf Club is located within close proximity to the bridge leaving Hilton Head Island. The course is a local favorite and was designed by Davis Love III, 2012 Ryder Cup Captain. The course is one of the most environmentally friendly courses in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area and is notorious for terrific greens and aesthetics. Registration for members is $179 and the fee for non-members is $199. Register online at www.hjgt.org.
