Tennessee Spring Challenge May 4-5

  Sevierville, TN (May 5, 2013) – Last weekend’s event in Hixson Tennessee marked the first ever rain-out in the five year tenure of the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. This weekend players and spectators seemed equally skeptical as to whether or not two rounds would be played in Sevierville, TN. The event this past weekend was the Tennessee Spring Challenge, hosted by the Sevierville golf club. Certainly one of the more challenging courses on the 2013 schedule, the Sevierville Golf Club features very firm, fast, and unforgiving greens. The course is laden with lateral hazards and water is present in some fashion on nearly all holes of the championship caliber River Course. Fortunately the heavy rain bands that were thought to wreak havoc on the town located just east of Knoxville were broken up when they reached the Smokey Mountains and decimated into mild rain. The event was ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard, one of the premiere ranking systems for junior golfers in the nation. At stake for this event was an automatic bid into the 2013 tour championship, which was granted to each division winner. Top ten finishers received numerous honors including valuable points toward state teams, all HJGT teams, and the Hurricane Cup. Scouts were present at the event from National Scouting Report to help provide insight to junior’s in the many ways to play golf at the collegiate level.
