Major Championship at The Wilds

On Saturday October 7th, 2017, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour hosted a Major Championship at The Wilds Country Club in Prior Lake Minnesota. The HJGT would like to thank the gracious and beyond helpful staff at the Wilds Golf Club for allowing us to host our event at such a great venue. Through a weekend of cold rain, and blistering winds, the players played through and were rewarded with some much-needed sun and low scores. Overall through the weekend we witnessed some great golf full of intense competition and exemplary sportsmanship.
