The Parent-Child Championship
A tradition in Florida for more than 20 years, the FSGA Parent-Child Championship includes men, women, boys and girls of all ages. Parents and Grandparents are eligible to play with their children and grandchildren, and there are multiple age divisions so that everyone can participate. For the youngest golfers, ages 6-12, teams play nine holes each day on the Oak Trail Course, a spectacular, executive-length design. Teams with children older than 12, play eighteen holes each day. All ages use a modified alternate-shot format that promotes a great team atmosphere. Different ages also play a variety of tee lengths to make sure that everyone is playing from the correct distance. All rounds begin with morning shotgun starts to allow time for players and families to enjoy Orlando in the afternoon. Join the hundreds of families that have made the Parent-Child Championship an annual tradition.
