AJGA’s Polo Jr. moves to PGA National

Thursday, April 30, 2009

One of the nation’s top junior events has a new home.

The AJGA’s Polo Golf Junior Classic will be played at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., this fall after spending two years at the Ginn Reunion Resort outside of Orlando.

The event will be held Nov. 21-27, and be played on two courses at PGA National – the Champion Course and the Haig Course. The PGA Tour’s Honda Classic has been played on the Champion Course since 2007. The 1983 Ryder Cup was also played there.

“Anytime the AJGA is able to play our championships on courses that have hosted such storied events, it’s a great opportunity,” said AJGA Executive Director Stephen Hamblin.

Patrick Winther won the boys’ division last year, while Jung Min Lee triumphed in the girls’ division.
