ABOUT HURRICANE JUNIOR GOLF TOUR
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) was founded in 2007 with the intention of providing junior golfers with an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment. The Tour’s vision is to provide superb hospitality and make every event a memorable one. With over 285+ events in 30 states and multiple countries, and play open to both males and females, nearly every junior golfer is eligible to participate on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. In 2017, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour announced a one-of-a-kind partnership with NEXUS, an international real estate and hospitality company backed by financier Joe Lewis and his Tavistock Group, golfing greats Tiger Woods and Ernie Els, and actor and musician Justin Timberlake. This unique combination between the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour and NEXUS was established to further our collective goal of growing the game of golf, as well as broadening the Tour’s reach across the U.S. and around the world. In 2019 the HJGT became the first junior golf tour to go completely paperless and offer digital scoring complete with a live leader board and everything a golfer would need to compete at the highest level, electronically.
