The HJGT will be heading to Royal Palm Beach Florida for the Southeast Florida Jr. Shootout on March 23-24.

National Scouting Report (NSR) will be on scene to provide players with pivotal exposure toward playing golf at the collegiate level. For the event the winner of the boy’s & girl’s 15-18 division and the boy’s 11-14 division will receive one exemption into a Florida Junior Tour (FJT) event. Winners of each of the four age divisions will receive an automatic bid into the 2013 Tour Championship and top 10 finishers will earn points toward year end honors as well as all HJGT teams and the Hurricane Cup.

The course is a challenging par-72 sprawled across a long stretch of land. With no fairways on the course running parallel players will find each hole to be unique. You will find yourself not only provoked by the challenging course but enjoying the environment as native birds such and the Blue Heron, Snowy Egret, as well as various hawks enjoy accompanying players and spectators through each round of golf.
