The Hurricane Golf Tour

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. 

Time to break out the golf clubs again, and a big woo hoo for it!!

Have you heard of The Hurricane Tour? It is comprised of four components: the Junior Tour, the Collegiate Tour, the Amateur Tour, and the Tour Shop (online). Based out of Jacksonville, FL, it administers over 150 events all across the country. With three different tours, golfers of any age and skill level are provided an opportunity to play the game.

The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (#HJGT) was founded in 2008 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. Membership for the HJGT is $89.00 and players receive discounted member pricing at each event. Every Hurricane Junior Golf Tour event is ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard (NJGS) and features a chance for players to earn AJGA stars. The top 3 finishers at each event will earn prizes. For a complete list of Junior Tour tournaments, visit:

The Hurricane Collegiate Golf Tour (#HCGT) was founded in 2011 and is perfect for college-aged golfers looking to perfect their game this summer in competitive tournaments at great venues. Whether you are a collegiate golfer looking to practice during the off-season, a future college golfer looking to prepare for the upcoming season, or a non-college golfer that wants to compete in first-class events, the HCGT is the tour for you! Membership to the tour is absolutely FREE and provides access to all 28 tournaments this summer in 11 different states. Top 3 finishers at each event will earn prizes. For a complete list of Collegiate Tour tournaments, visit:

The Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour (#HAGT) was founded in 2014 with the intention of providing golfers of any age and skill level an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment, while raising money to benefit the Hurricane Foundation and other charitable organizations alike. In order to play on the Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour, players must become a member for the low rate of $25. Amateurs (men, women and seniors) will compete in one of 10 flights based on their handicap, gender, and age. Senior Flights are for players that have turned 50 years old by May 17, 2014. Every tournament on the 2014 schedule will have a unique "Major Championship" feel to it. A special feature of the Amateur Tour is the "19th Hole Dinner," where players will have the opportunity to win raffles, giveaways, and silent auctions. The top 3 finishers in every flight will compete for the $2,000 total prize purse regardless of field size at the tournament. The payouts will be in form of gift cards to the Hurricane Tour Shop.

Lastly, the online Hurricane Tour Shop was created in 2013 for the purpose of offering golfers of all ages the newest trends in golf apparel, equipment and accessories at PREFERRED PRICING.

I have never heard of it, but that is awesome. My kids both tried golf and it wasn't for them, but it's great that kids are given the chance to try it.

Pat Hatt said...

Great for them to have such an event indeed, but yeah me and golf never go hand and hand

I wonder if my Daughters boyfriend plays in this. He plays in a lot of different tours and goes out of state to play. I will have to ask her, if not.. he may be interested.

Kim Croisant said...

My husband was an avid golf player for many years. I think he's given it up though. It's a wonderful sport and I do like going to tournaments.

MikiHope said...

I have never heard of this before but what a great idea! I don't play golf but believe that anyone who does should be given a chance to compete with their own level players.

Elephant's Child said...

I think it was Mark Twain who described golf as 'a good walk ruined'. And I would agree. Nice idea for those that want to play though.

Scott said...

Been trying to get my daughters to take up gold, but they're having none of it. Maybe seeing other kids do it will motivate them.

becca said...

Never did get into Golf but I do play a mean round of mini golf. This sounds like a great tournament for those who do golf.

Growing Up Madison said...

I'm not into golf and could never understand the game but I do love mini golf. This sounds like a lot of fun but I've never heard of it before now. Thanks for sharing.

alissa apel said...

Sounds like fun! Can you believe I've never been golfing? I've only been to miniature golfing places.

Pauline Cabrera said...

Sounds fun! This reminds me of my cousin in Bermuda! I remember how he loved golf so much and took us in his golf places. He tried teaching me golf but I just don't get it!

DeDa Studios said...

This is totally new to me...thanks for sharing! I will pass on the info to my friends!

Teresa McCluskey said...

This is neat! I am not much of a golfer or watcher for the sport but its really neat for the persont hat is!

Angela said...

It's been Masters week here in Augusta, so all I have been hearing about is golf. I'm not much of a golfer myself but have a few family members who get out onto the course as often as possible.

The Rebel Chick said...

I can never keep up with all of the golf tournaments coming through Miami! This sounds like a really cool one!

jaime said...

I'm really not a golfer. My dad and stepmom live in Jacksonville, though, and I feel like I've heard of this golf tour. (My dad also loves golf.)

Angel said...

Sounds neat. We have some men in our family that really like golfing. :)

Dina said...

We golfed for a while. But it's an expensive sport. My son did the summer program one year and he enjoyed that a lot. The tour sounds fun.

Amber Killmon said...

I've always wanted to go golfing. This looks and sounds like a lot of fun.

Liz Mays said...

What a great way for kids to really sink their teeth into the sport. I've never done any golfing apart from mini.

Colette S said...

I've heard mention of it, but never delve in.

This is a good way to get kids interested in the sport.

Kenda said...

My husband used to play and I wish he'd get back into it. I think he and our 16 year old would really enjoy it.

MrsAshley said...

I've never been golfing but I'd love to go and give it a try sometime. I like mini golf so maybe I'd like golf too?

Theresa Mahoney said...

I have never gotten into the whole golf thing, but I had a friend in high school that was an avid golfer. She would really have enjoyed this!

Joanna Sormunen said...

First time I heard about them. I don't really watch much golf, worse yet play it myself. But it the tournament sounds interesting!

Jaredamy said...

I'm not really into gulf by my brother in law would probably be interested! I will pass the info on to him.

StacieinAtlanta said...

My kids and I love playing miniature golf. I also played regular golf in college.

KentuckyCooking said...

We've been watching the Masters for the past week, so I'm definitely in the mood to swing a club! I took a semester of golf (yep, it was an actually class) when I was in college and loved it!

Christina Shirley said...

I love kids staying active. I think this is great to blow it up so much! We're not golf people, but if my son someday wants to try, sure!
