The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour is nearing its final stretch of the 2013 season as it heads to Amelia Island on November 16-17.  The Johnson and Wales Jr. Open will be hosted by Amelia River Golf Club and it promises to be a great event with a strong, competitive field. There are AJGA Performance Stars available for champions in the Boys 15-18 and Girls 15-18 divisions, as well as the Boys 11-14 division if there are 20 players in that division. Champions in those divisions will also receive an exemption into a Florida Junior Tour event. Winners in all four divisions will receive an invitation to the 2013 Tour Championship and a $50 Kikkor Golf gift card. In addition, top ten finishers will receive points toward the inaugural Hurricane Cup as well as other end of the year honors like All-HJGT teams and state teams. The 36-hole stroke play tournament will begin Saturday with an 8:00AM start off both tees, and will conclude Sunday with a double tee start at 8:00AM as well. Registration for members is $179 and $199 for non-members. For membership information please refer to our website (www.hjgt.org/basic-membership/). Known for its incredibly smooth TifEagle greens, manicured fairways and challenging pin positions, Amelia River is one of the most prestigious courses in all of North Florida.  Sculpted around a forest of live Oaks, Sabal Palms, Pines and Wax Myrtles, this Tom Jackson designed track plays to 6,823 yards from the back tees.  Amelia River Golf Club offers a challenge to all skill levels.
