South Florida Junior Open

(February 4-5, 2017)

Bringing The Heat

  This weekend the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour took the road to Royal Palm Beach, FL to host the South Florida Junior Open at the Village Golf Club. Sunshine and clear skies with temperatures in the mid 70’s to up to 80 degrees accompanied the tournament this weekend. The HJGT would like to thank the Village Golf Club for letting us host at such an amazing course. There was quite a bit at stake during this tournament for the top 3 finishers of each division. One was that the top 3 of each division would get exemption into 2017 National Championships which take place December 2-3, 2017. The next was that the top 3 would also get exemption into the Mid-Season Invitational at Sea Island Plantation June 11-13, 2017. The top ten finishers also were rewarded points towards end of the year honors.   Boys 16-18
