Over the last several years, Westlake Golf & Country Club has dedicated their golf course and time to support Youth Golf in many different ways, from establishing themselves as the home course for the Jackson Memorial High School golf team, and offering special rates for junior play, to hosting the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour event for the second year in a row.
The following is a short article written by the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour, Event Director, Ryan Stinchcomb:
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) was founded in 2007 with the intention of providing junior golfers between the ages of 11-18 an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment. The tour’s vision is to provide superb hospitality and make every event a memorable one. With play open to both males and females, nearly every junior golfer is eligible to participate on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. Currently the HJGT is the largest junior golf tour in the United States hosting more 2-day nationally ranked events than any other tour. The HJGT has been able to achieve this goal by running the most professional events and providing an exceptional value to all of our players and families over the last 8 years. There are several factors that set us apart from the competition which we call #thehurricanedifference.
This past weekend on September 12th and 13th, 2015, the HJGT competed at the Westlake Golf and Country Club for an event that was praised by many parents and juniors. The course and the staff at Westlake were amazing and helped host a fantastic event for all of the juniors. The layout of the course while also factoring in the wind conditions provided a tough challenge for some of the juniors but 5 of them prevailed and came out victorious. We also wanted to thank the residents of Westlake for allowing us to hold an event on their beautiful course. We hope they enjoyed seeing some potential tour players out there and seeing how good the future holds for some of them. We appreciate all they did for us and hope to be back in the near future. Thanks again to everyone at Westlake Golf and Country Club.
