Timacuan Golf & Country Club Plays Host To AJGA’s Foley Performance Academy Tournament This Week
LAKE MARY, FL – Timacuan Golf & Country Club is hosting some of the top young golfers in the world this week in the Foley Performance Academy @ EaglesDream Junior All-Star. The tournament is an official event on the American Junior Golf Association calendar.
The AJGA is conducting the 54-hole junior competition Tuesday through Thursday on the highly acclaimed Ron Garl layout. The public is invited to watch the action free of charge. Tee times for the 78-player field will start at 7:45 a.m. each day. Players from as far away as China and the Dominican Republic have qualified for this tournament for boys and girls aged 12-15.
“We are thrilled to have these top junior golfers test our recently revitalized golf course,” said Timacuan Director of Operations Jason Jaes. “All of the work that has gone into the course the past few months is paying dividends. These juniors will enjoy a challenging golf course that is in excellent condition.”
Timacuan has been among the most popular tournament courses in Central Florida since opening in 1988. It has been ranked as high as No. 14 in Florida, and 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. “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.”
The Foley Performance Academy @ EaglesDream is based at Timacuan, and is headed by world-renowned golf instructor Sean Foley. It is home to several top international junior players, some of whom will be in the field this week. Foley’s Performance Academy offers training to all levels of golfers. The main focus is providing junior golfers a unique opportunity to develop big match temperament through elite golf training with world-class academics.
