The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour is excited to host the 2nd Major Championship of the 2013 season. The event will take place at the Jekyll Island Golf Course-Pine Lakes April 13-14 in Jekyll Island, GA. Due to the fact that this is a Major Championship caddies will be allowed at the tournament. Major Championships are some of the most competitive events on our schedule and therefore there is a lot at stake for the competitors. Typically only the top ten finishers are awarded with points towards year-end honors, but for the Major Championship points will be doubled and awarded to the top 20 players. These points amass towards honors such as All-HJGT Teams and the Hurricane Cup. Tarheel Youth Golf Association and South Carolina Junior Golf Association Heritage points are also up for grabs. Winners in all four divisions will be rewarded with an automatic bid to the 2013 Tour Championship. Winners of both the boy’s and girl’s 15-18 age divisions will receive four AJGA performance stars and the winner of the boy’s 11-14 age division will receive one performance star. This tournament will also be ranked by the Junior Golf Scoreboard.
The event will consist of 36 holes of stroke play played from Saturday to Sunday. Players will be started off of the first and tenth holes with tee times starting at 8:00 am both days. Registration will begin at 7:00 am on Saturday. The event will feature our typical four divisions: Boys & Girls 15-18 year olds & Boys & Girls 11-14 year olds. Top three finishers in all four divisions will be awarded with trophies. The player from each division with the most birdies will go home with an EFX Bracelet. The most improved player in each division over the two day tournament will receive a set of Golf Pride grips. Registration for the event is $179 for members and $199 for non-members.

The renovation included adding new lakes and bunkers as well as redesigning all the greens. All said, Pine Lakes started as a beautiful course in 1968 and the renovation in 2002 made it an even more desirable golf course to play.
