Internship Opportunities


The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour is a National Junior Golf Tour and was founded with the intention of providing junior golfers between the ages of 11-18 an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment. Our vision is to provide superb hospitality and make every event a memorable one. Over the past six seasons the tour has grown at exponential proportions and has become one of the premier choices when it comes to junior golf in the country. Since being founded in 2007 the tour has grown from 300 members and 25 events to more than 2,400 members and 130 events in the 2014 season. In 2014 the HJGT will be expanding to 7 new states. With this expansion, the tour has also been fortunate enough to embody many characteristics not normally seen in the junior golf industry including large corporate sponsorship deals, top tier golf course selection, influential stake in the golfing community, and an excellent experience for its Players. Embedded within the tour are four distinct age divisions: Boys 15-18 Boys 11-14, Girls 15-18 and Girls 11-14.

The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour offers a well-rounded educational internship for ambitious individuals looking at developing a wide variety of business skills in the field instead of a traditional classroom.
