 (December 3-4, 2016)

Crowning a Champion at ChampionsGate

This weekend the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Kissimmee, Florida to take on ChampionsGate International Course. It was a beautiful weekend as the golfers were able to handle the tough challenges the course had to offer. Thank you to ChampionsGate for allowing the HJGT to host this event at their wonderful course. The Boys 16-18 age division was in play this weekend as Junior Golf Scoreboard and Golfweek rankings and AJGA PBE Stars were on the line. The top ten finishers in each division will receive points towards the Hurricane Cup. Additionally, the top three finishers get an automatic bid to the 2017 HJGT National Championship.    Boys 16-18 Division
