Course Preview: Florida Junior at Falcon’s Fire

Kissimmee, FL: The International Junior Golf Tour returns to action this weekend as it kick-starts another exciting season by returning to one of the favorite stops of junior golfers, Falcon’s Fire Golf Club. The Orlando area course has been a consistent stop now for the tour for multiple seasons, as players enjoy lighting up the scoreboard during competition at the Rees Jones design.

Falcon’s Fire has been honored with the prestigious Apex Award, and has been voted as one of the “Top 10 Golf Tournament Facilities” in North America by the National Association of Golf Tournament Directors.

Falcon’s Fire has been a favorite for players from the IJGT for years now, and this years event is now different as players from all over Florida and Internationally will gather during the 36-hole, nationally ranked event.
