The International Junior Golf Tour will be headed to Avondale, La. on December 21-22 for the IJGT Junior at TPC Louisiana. This will be the first time the IJGT has held an event at TPC Louisiana. Players will be competing for national rankings and IJGT Merit Points.
Host of the PGA TOUR’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans, TPC Louisiana is ranked as the 5th best golf course in Louisiana and is included in “The Top 100 Public Golf Courses” by Golf Digest. The course was designed by renowned architect Pete Dye, working in conjunction with PGA TOUR players Steve Elkington and Kelly Gibson. The par-72 course stretches over 250 acres of wetlands along the Mississippi River delta and features over 100 bunkers. The course’s signature hole is No. 18, featuring water running all the way up the right side, making for a memorable finish.
Players to keep an eye on in the Boys 15-19 Division include Austin Campbell of Lake Charles, La., Beau David of Lafayette, La., and Gage Primeaux of Lake Charles, La., who will be looking to earn their first IJGT victories in their debut events. In the Boys 14 & Under Division Nolan Lambert of Gretna, La. will also be hoping to shoot his way to a victory in his debut. Allison Herring of Skillman, N.J. hopes to build off her 6th place finish at the Thanksgiving Day Classic at TPC Sawgrass and earn the championship in the Girls Division.
