Major Championship at Eastlake Woodlands

On Friday, September 21, 2017, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Oldsmar, FL to host the Major Championship at Eastlake Woodlands at the beautiful Woodlands Golf Club. The players battled through some tough course conditions Saturday just to come back on Sunday to find even worse conditions on Sunday. Even with fallen trees and branches accompanied by some standing water on some of the holes nothing was going to get in the way of these golfers giving their all.
