Junior Florida Cup

The Founders Golf Club - Sarasota
July 23-24, 2018

The Junior Florida Cup is a Ryder Cup-style event that pits the best junior golfers in Florida against each other.  It is a fun-filled three days that starts off with team meetings and practice rounds, followed by an optional team dinner at a local restaurant.  The first day of matches includes mixed-foursomes (boy/girl alternate shot) as well as four-ball matches (two person best ball) which are followed by the pairings dinner at the club.  During dinner, players select who they would like to play against in the following day's singles matches - something that always provides for some entertaining moments!  And just like the Ryder Cup, the final day concludes with singles matches followed by the trophy presentation.  For those who are invited, it is a can't miss opportunity!

This event is invitation only. Boys and girls are invited by their standing on the Junior Florida Cup points list on Tuesday, May 29th. All FJT events held in August 2017 through May 2018 are included in the points list.
