HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) is thrilled to announce its Fall 2013 Discovery Tour schedule. The tour invites kids ages 8-12 to gain tournament experience as well as improve their golf game, while above all having fun. With four Discovery Tour events scheduled we are expecting to have the highest turnout to date. The Discovery Tour is a laid back alternative to the IJGT, and is designed to give kids the chance to play with golfers of similar age and skill level.
The Northeast Tour will consist of two spectacular golf courses. The first stop is the Blue Heron Pines Golf Club in Cologne, N.J. This course was given four stars by Golf Digest and continues to exceed expectations by being recognized as the best 18-hole golf course on the Jersey Shore. With a notoriously difficult 15th hole the kids of the Discovery Tour are sure to find the course an exciting challenge that will help them hone their golf skills.
The second stop on the Northeast tour will be at an IJGT favorite, the Hershey Links Golf Club in Hershey, Pa. The golf course is a par-72 that stretches 175 acres and features links-style golf with tall fescue grasses and bentgrass greens. This will be the last season the Hershey Links course will be open and we are thrilled to have one last chance to play it.
Our Southeast leg of the tour will be featuring two of Hilton Head Island’s best golf courses. The first will be held at Palmetto Hall on the Arthur Hills golf course, which opened in 1991 and was instantly rated as one of America’s top 10 New Courses. Their signature par-4 18th hole offers a variety of obstacles that are sure to keep any golfer on their toes. The tour will also be headed to Hilton Head National, which is considered the “best of the best” by the locals of Hilton Head Island.
At the end of the 2013-2014 Discovery Tour season the junior golfer that earns the most points in each division will earn a free week of summer golf camp at the International Junior Golf Academy.
September 7th – Hilton Head National
October 12th – Blue Heron Pines
