-Juniors to get collegiate exposure playing alongside the Bearcat Spring Classic-
Howey-in-the-Hills, FL (March 20, 2015) – Mission Inn Resort & Club in Howey-in-the-Hills, FL is preparing to welcome a field of juniors over the weekend as the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) Spring Break Junior present by Core Golf Academy is set to play March 21-22. The event will showcase talented junior golfers from around the world as 13 countries will have representation.
Mission Inn Resort & Club boasts two signature courses and the golf experience is truly remarkable from the scenery—hills that roll and pitch, mature pine and magnolia trees that tower, eagles and ospreys that fly overhead. The terrain of this part of Central Florida, originally orange groves, provides up to 85 ft. elevation changes and a peaceful ambiance void of fairway houses and condos.
Designed by Gary Koch and built in 1992, Las Colinas (Spanish for “the hills”) is an 18-hole championship course that offers quite a different challenge from El Campeón. It is an inland links design with generous, wide-open fairways, gentle rolling hills and large, undulating greens.
Las Colinas was nominated as “Best New Resort Course” by Golf Digest in 1992, named “Best Places to Play – 4 stars” by Golf Digest, and has received “Top Fairways” recognition by Golf for Women. Its signature hole is “Alligator Alley”, the par 5, 12th hole that spans 493 yards along a tree-lined fairway and requires absolute accuracy from tee-to-green.
- International Representation of 13 countries – Canada, China, Costa Rica, England, Germany, Korea, Mexico, Paraguay, Russia, Scotland, Slovakia, United States, and Vietnam
- 2015 Bearcat Spring Classic is taking place at Mission Inn March 20-22 with 18 NCAA Division 1 schools participating (2015 Bearcat Spring Classic)
- Mission Inn Resort & Club has hosted an NCAA championship each of the last nine years
- Weather forecast shows 29 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday
