On Saturday, December 2nd, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to ChampionsGate, Florida to host the Tournament of Champions Boys 16-18 at the ChampionsGate Golf Resort. Saturday and Sunday saw equally beautiful, breezy conditions, perfect for low scores and plenty of smiles. The HJGT would like to thank the staff at ChampionsGate Golf Resort for allowing us to host our tournament at such an amazing venue.
