2014 Video Production Internship with Hurricane Junior Golf Tour

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 120 events in the 2013 season.
