Timacuan Golf & Country Club will host some of the best junior golfers in the country this weekend (Jan 18th-Jan 20th) in the Foley Performance Academy at EaglesDream Junior Championship.

The American Junior Golf Association will conduct the 54-hole competition for players aged 12 to 18 January 19-20 on the highly acclaimed Ron Garl layout. The public is invited to watch the action free of charge.

There will be shotgun starts for the field of 65 juniors on Saturday at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. for the 36 holes. Tee times on Sunday for the final round will start at 8:15 a.m. on both sides.

“We are thrilled to showcase our golf course and our outstanding Mini-Verde greens to some of the best players in the world,” said Timacuan Golf Director Eric Cannon. “Our course has the reputation of being a top challenge for tournament golfers. I know these juniors will find the course to their liking.”

The Foley Performance Academy at EaglesDream is located at Timacuan, and is headed by world-renowned instructor Sean Foley, coach to current No. 1 ranked Justin Rose. Many of the top juniors in the world have honed their skills at the academy.

Timacuan has been among the most popular courses in Central Florida since opening in 1988. Having ranked in the top 14 golf courses in Florida, Timacuan has hosted dozens of national and international competitions. U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell is among its fans.

“I really enjoyed the golf course,” said McDowell, after playing in the $10,000 Timacuan Scramble in January of 2013. “It is a great layout with a links-like feel to it. It can be testy in places if you get off the beaten path, but it is a very fair course.”

Another fan of Timacuan and the Mini-Verde greens is former world long drive champion David Mobley.

“I was so impressed with the greens,” said Mobley. “The new Mini Verde greens really force you to golf your ball. You have to put it in the right places on these greens. It’s an excellent layout, and these new greens make you play the golf course the way it is supposed to be played.”

Timacuan Golf & Country Club is a semi-private facility that embraces both the public community as well as their long-standing, family centric membership. Along with Foley Performance Academy, Timacuan is committed to advancing the game of golf through education and instruction.

A strong field of 4-player teams is shaping up for the 10th Annual $10,000 Timacuan Scramble, which will be conducted Monday, January 21, at Timacuan Golf And Country Club in Lake Mary, FL.

The tournament, which has attracted full fields and many pro tour stars during previous years, is one of the first events of what promises to be a busy PGA Merchandise Show Week in the Orlando area. The public is invited to view the action free of charge. Shotgun start is at 8:30 a.m.

So far the field includes LPGA Tour player and two-time major champion Anna Nordqvist, PGA Tour winner Tommy Gainey and former World Long Drive Champion Tim Burke, among many others.

The format is a four-person scramble, with at least one player on each team being a professional. Teams may consist of all professionals. There are still some openings in the field. If you would like to enter a team, or enter as an individual, please call Timacuan at 407-321-0010.

Over the years the tournament has attracted many stars from the PGA, Champions and LPGA Tours, as well as numerous mini-tour players. That list includes U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell, PGA Tour winner Russell Knox, Robert Gamez, a three-time winner on the PGA Tour, Shanshan Feng (former No. 1 in the world), LPGA major champion Brittany and Jim Thorpe, a major winner on the Champions Tour.

But this is far from a “tour-players-only” event. This team competition is a rare opportunity to play against some of the best players in the world. Entries will be limited to 36 teams. Professionals will receive a check on site. Cash prizes can be substituted with shop credit upon request. Men will play the golf course from the Gold tees that measure 7,047 yards. Women will play the Blue tees that measure 6,531 yards.

Entry fee is $800 per team, and the field will be limited to 36 teams. Payout based on 36 teams is $10,000 for first place, $4,500 for second, $3,500 for third, $1,500 for fourth, $1,200 for fifth and $800 for sixth.

Registration can be completed through the Timacuan Pro Shop at 407-321-0010. Payment can be made by credit card, cashiers check, or cash, and must be received before being entered in the Scramble.

The semi-private Timacuan, designed by Ron Garl, is located in Lake Mary near Interstate 4, just minutes north of downtown Orlando. It has been ranked as high as No. 14 in Florida. The

greens were completely renovated in 2013 and are now considered among the best putting surfaces in Central Florida.

“I really enjoyed the golf course,” said McDowell. “It is a great layout with a links-like feel to it. It can be testy in places if you get off the beaten path, but it is a very fair course.”

Timacuan is home to the Foley Performance Academy at EaglesDream, headed by world-renowned instructor Sean Foley. For more information visit www.golftimacuan.com, or call 407-321-0010 to book a tee time.
