July 19, 2011 - PRLog -- The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) will be returning to Augusta, GA August 6-7 to host the Forest Hills Junior Open at Forest Hills GC.  This will be the second straight year that the HJGT has visited this venue to hold a junior golf tournament.  In one prior visit to Forest Hills GC, the staff provided the junior golf tour and its members with a generous amount of hospitality which allowed for a great weekend of competitive junior golf.  The same is expected on the return trip in early-August, and the HJGT is looking forward to hosting the event at one of the best golfing venues in Augusta.

The last time the HJGT visited Forest Hills Golf Club in Augusta, GA was in October of 2010 for the HJGT Fall Championship.  In the event, Chandler Vilcheck of Bluffton, SC shot a second round -3 (69) to storm back into contention in the Boys 16-19 Division, tying him with Austin Langdale of Townville, SC after 36 holes of play.  In the second playoff hole Vilcheck took the title, which landed him his second title of the 2010 year.  In the Girls 15-19 Division, Haley Austin of McDonough, GA posted a second round +3 (75) to recover from an opening round score of +13 (85) to take the top spot by one stroke over the second place finisher. Austin posted four birdies in the two day event which was the most of any competitor in her division.

Junior golfers will compete over 36-holes of stroke play in one of five age divisions: Boys 15-19, Boys 13-14, Boys 10-12, Girls 14-18, or Girls 10-13. This event will be ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard (NJGS) and the South Carolina Junior Golf Association (SCJGA). New for 2011, any first-time player who registers for the HJGT will be able to play in his or her first event for only $99! Also, any player who registers for a College Bound Membership with the HJGT will be able to play in his or her first tournament of 2011 for just $99! And remember, any HJGT player who refers a new player to the tour will receive a 12-pack of Nike One Tour D HJGT Logo golf balls for free!

The Forest Hills Golf Club is a staple in Augusta, GA as one of the finest golfing establishments in the area.  The 18-hole golf course was originally designed by world renowned golf course architect Donald Ross, and then was redesigned by the Arnold Palmer Company in 2004.  The course holds a remarkable amount of history spanning back to its establishment in 1926.  Most recently it is known for being the home course of Augusta State University Men's Golf Team, which is the two time defending Division 1 champions.  As it continues its long standing tradition of golf excellence, Forest Hills has repeatedly been named the “Best Public Golf Course” by Augusta Magazine and offers time-honored Southern topography with level, rolling fairways surrounded by immaculate landscape
