Timacuan Golf & Country Club in Lake Mary has created an event that gives juniors the opportunity to experience what the PGA Tour professionals do with the Fed-Ex Cup.
The Timacuan Junior Race for the Cup is a competitive junior golf tour for all skill levels. Junior golfers from age 5 to 16 will be placed in different divisions based on skill levels for boys and girls.
The juniors will play 9 holes of golf every other week and will be awarded points based on participation and performance. All players will receive complimentary range balls one-hour prior to each tournament.
During the season, Timacuan will offer a parent/child tournament.
At the conclusion of the season a Major Championship will be held, in which trophies will be awarded for boys and girls in each division.
The regular season schedule began on Oct. 13, but it is not too late to sign up for the remainder of the slate. The next competition is this Saturday, Oct. 27. The remainder of the schedule is Nov. 3, Nov. 1 and Dec. 1. There will be a 2 pm shotgun each day. A special Parent/Child competition is set for Dec. 8, and the Major Championship will be played Dec. 15.
Points will be awarded at each regular-season tournament as follows: 50 points for participation, 50 points for turning in a signed scorecard, and 100 to 600 points for each tournament based on results. The player with the most combined points from the regular season and Major Championship will be crowned the champion. There will also be trophies for four flight winners: White Tees, Green Tees, Red Tees and Junior Tees.
Registration fee for the entire regular season is $125, or you can pay $30 per each regular season tournament. Entry fee for the Parent/Child tournament is $30, and a $30 entry fee for the Major Championship includes participation medal & dinner buffet.
