March 24-26, 2005
Celebration Golf Club
- The renowned father-son team of
Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Jr. sculpted a park-like atmosphere within the
natural wetland environment, creating a truly serene golf experience. The course
boasts rolling terrain that weaves through a series of pristine lakes and
periodic clusters of native oak, pine and magnolia.
Designed with shot-making strategy in mind, the championship caliber course demands accurate approach shots and consistent putting. Featuring strategic hazards and challenging greens, and sporting five sets of tees on every hole, the course invites competition for many skill levels. Host to prestigious events such as the 2002 U.S. Senior Open Qualifier, 2003 Florida State Public Links Championship, 2004 Buick Scramble National Championships, and the 2004 Robert Gamez Celebration Invitational.
Celebrating golf at every level, Celebration Golf Club is an acclaimed venue for promoting the love of the game to future champions as well as to the established golfer, and is listed as one of PGA Magazine's Junior Friendly courses. Recognizing that serious golf commences early in a player, Celebration offers unparalleled programs targeted to the junior golfer, including the Celebration Golf Academy with specialized junior clinics and a challenging 3-hole Junior course.
