Golf Course: Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country, The Hills Country Club’s Flintrock Falls course offers 18 holes of championship level golf. Opening for play in 2002, this Nicklaus Design course measures out to 7,051 yards and plays as a par 72. The course design forces golfers to hit a variety of shots to maneuver around each hole while missing all the bunkers. Jack Nicklaus designed the first nine holes and his son, Jack Nicklaus II, designed the second nine. Flintrock Falls last hosted the Jimmy Demaret Junior Classic in 2016. The Legends Junior Tour would like to thank the staff and membership of the Hills Country Club for hosting the Jimmy Demaret Junior Classic.
Weather: Round 2 started on time and players experienced temperatures in the mid 60’s along with mild winds throughout the day.
What’s Next: The next stop on the LJT schedule will be in Houston for the Texas Girls’ Invitational at Golfcrest Country Club. You can find more information on the tournament homepage here.
