Parent-Child Championship This Weekend at Disney
The Parent-Child Championship is the largest Florida State Golf Association administered event. Since 1997, the Walt Disney World Resort has hosted the Parent-Child Championship and once again, the resort’s Osprey Ridge course, Eagle Pines course and the Oak Trail executive course will be used for the two divisions.
The Parent-Child Championship has become an annual event for many families. The tournament is open to everyone, including grandparents who want to play with a grandchild. There is no maximum age limitation for the parent or child. The event consists of two divisions; junior and regular. In the junior division, the child must be between 6-12 years of age, and in the regular division the child must be 13 or older.
The junior division will play the Oak Trail executive course in 9 holes of modified alternate shot format using the Stableford scoring each day. The regular division is split on Eagle Pines and Osprey Ridge and will play 36 holes of modified alternate shot. The field is divided based upon the combined handicaps of the teams and will be flighted after 18 holes.
Defending Champions, Andy and Rick Spears are in the field for this year’s Championship. Last year, the pair won the regular division 63-69—132. Also in this year’s field is the 2004 State Senior Champion Bruce Scamehorn and his son Scott.
