Hurricane Mini Tour
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) has successfully run over 475 junior golf tournaments since 2007 in 21 different states. With the game of golf growing faster than ever, we are excited to announce the release of our first ever Hurricane Mini Tour! The Mini Tour will launch in Ohio with the support of the Ohio Jr. Golf Academy. This series will be open to all boys and girls between the ages of 9-12 years old. Our mission is to give young boys and girls the opportunity to play competitive golf in order to prepare their game to play at a higher level. Each of the Mini Tour Series' will consist of a one-day, 18 hole tournament. The players in the mini series will tee off right behind the junior players competing in the HJGT event on Sunday. The Mini Tour Series events will consist of four divisions that include Boys 9-10, Girls 9-10, Boys 11-12 and Girls 11-12. Each event will be $79 for members and $99 for non-members. A mini tour membership is $50 which will be good for the entire 2015 season. Doug Lemons, PGA Professional of the Ohio Jr. Golf Academy states "We are thrilled to partner with the Hurricane Mini Tour on this new venture for them. I have been working with 7-10 year old golfers for several years now and I can't wait to continue to work in a field that I am so passionate about." The HJGT Mini Tour Series is different than other mini series' in that each series will be administered and operated by HJGT's professional staff rather than parents or volunteers. The golf courses will be set up professionally with proper course markings, hole locations and yardages just like the junior events will be. Mini tour players will learn how to compete on their own without the use of a caddie. Hurricane Junior Golf Tour founder and Executive Director, Mario Conte states "We are thrilled to start a tour that promotes the growth of the game of golf at such a young age. We have been evaluating this age demographic for quite some time and we feel we have developed a product that will be fun, competitive, educational, and professionally managed to teach kids and parents the right way to develop their skills to play at a high level. We look forward to growing this tour after our initial launch in Ohio in 2015."
