Mission Inn Jr. Classic

(February  25-26, 2017)

Mission Accomplished at Junior Open

  On Thursday, February 23, 2017, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Palm Harbor, FL to host the Mission Inn Junior Classic at the beautiful Las Colinas Course in Mission Inn resort and club. Saturday morning was extremely foggy, resulting in a 30 minute delay. After it lifted we got the players out on the course. Sunday was nothing but sunshine with a slight wind. The HJGT would like to thank the staff at Mission Inn for allowing us to host our tournament at such an amazing venue.  Top 3 players in each division will receive an exemption into the 2017 National Championship December 2-3, and the Mid Season Invitational at Sea Island Plantation June 11-13. Top 10 finishers receive points towards year end honors which include state teams, ALL HJGT teams, and the Hurricane Cup. It was an amazing experience to watch these junior golfers finish this course with such low scores. Boys 16-18
