About the Junior Florida Cup
2017 Junior Florida Cup
July 31 - August 1, 2017
The Junior Florida Cup is hands down one of the most fun and exciting golf events in the state of Florida. Each year the state's top junior players are invited to participate in a North Florida versus South Florida team competition just like the Ryder Cup. The sixteen player teams play three 18 hole matches over two days with the winning team taking home not only the trophy, but also bragging rights in the state for the whole year!
The Ryder Cup style format has 32 total matches and each match is worth one point. The first team to 16 1/2 points wins the Cup for one year. A 16-16 tie results in the defending champions retaining the Cup for an additional year.
