The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour will make the journey to Crossville, Tennessee which will play host to the Major Championship at Bear Trace. The tournament will be hosted by Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain on October 19-20 and will be ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard. Winners in the Boys 15-18, Boys 11-14, and the Girls 15-18 will earn AJGA Performance Stars to be used toward exemptions into AJGA events as long as the field requirements are met. Winners in all four divisions receive an invite to the HJGT’s 2013 Tour Championship. Top 20 finishers will receive considerably more points than a standard HJGT event, points that go towards all end of the year honors which include All-HJGT teams, state teams, and points for the Hurricane Cup. With this being a major championship, players in all divisions will be allowed to use a caddie. The Major Championship at Bear Trace will be a 36 hole stroke play event with registration starting at 8:00AM on Saturday, October 19th, leading to a single tee start from 9:00AM-12:00PM. Sunday will begin with a single tee from 9:00AM-12:00AM. Registration fees are $179 for HJGT members and $199 for non-members. For membership information please refer to our website(www.hjgt.org/basic-membership/). Situated in the heart of Tennessee's scenic Cumberland Plateau, The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain was named "Top Ten Courses in Tennessee" by Golf Digest in 2001. Today, The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain is one of the most sought-after sites among the Jack Nicklaus designed Bear Trace courses in Tennessee. The 6,900-yard (gold tees), par 72 layout features a design that capitalizes on elevation changes as well as natural features, such as flowing brooks and clustered, mature pines. The signature 7th hole, a 393-yard, par 4, incorporates another of the region's natural resources, layered flagstone, along the front of the green.
