  • The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) and the Northwest Junior Golf Tour (NJrGT) are proud to announce a partnership to better provide junior golfers in the Pacific Northwest with the opportunity to play on a competitive, national stage. The partnership is an integral part of HJGT’s expansion effort to provide tournaments coast-to-coast in 2016 as the largest junior golf tour in the country. Jeff Mehlert, Executive Director of NJrGT, has hosted junior golf tournaments in the Pacific Northwest for the past 17 years. Mehlert’s partnership with Mario Conte, Executive Director of HJGT, allows his players to compete in nationally ranked events and the opportunity to earn invitations to the prestigious Hurricane Cup in November, as well as the HJGT National Championship in December. Junior golfers will also have the opportunity to become a member of the HJGT at no cost during the introductory year. “We believe that by both parties working together we can offer the kids a stronger competitive environment that will build college golf resumes,” Mehlert and Conte said. The HJGT will offer more than 240 events in 32 states in 2016, and 14 events throughout Washington and Oregon. Currently the HJGT hosts more two-day, nationally ranked events than any other junior golf tour in the United States. The 2016 schedule includes 14 tournaments presented by HJGT and NJrGT, which start in March and continue through December. The tours will be traveling to courses throughout the Pacific Northwest, starting in Port Orchard, Washington, and ending in Bandon, Oregon.
