Junior-Am Award: HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods

For the fourth year in a row, local organizers of the HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods, which took place Feb. 17-20 at The Club at Carlton Woods' Fazio Championship Course in The Woodlands, Texas, have been awarded the Junior-Am Award. This award honors a tournament committee that exceeds expectations in fundraising through its Junior-Am Fundraising Tournament.

Each year, the AJGA presents awards to the tournaments with the best individual media coverage, charitable giving, volunteer base and hospitality. The AJGA also recognizes the year’s most outstanding golf professional, superintendent and general manager, as well as the most improved event, best new tournament, best Invitational and overall tournament of the year.

The HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods has an esteemed history with names such as Jim Furyk, Tiger Woods, and Rickie Fowler on the list of past champions. Recognized last year as the Invitational of the Year, the tournament creates an unparalleled championship experience. This experience is due, in large part, to the generosity of a network of friends, businesses, and organizations surrounding the event.

"I have a large support in my community of friends that understand my passion for junior golf,” said Tournament Co-Chairman Brett Snortland. “I have a special interest with military and autism in my family and it helps people to know that my heart is 100 percent committed.”

Since the HP Boys Championship moved to The Club at Carlton Woods in 2009, the Tournament Committee has raised more than $430,500, including $110,500 in 2012, through its Junior-Am Fundraising Tournament.

“This award is a representation of the passion for the game and traditions of golf, commitment and generosity of so many wonderful individuals and companies,” said Tournament Co-Chairman Christine Dernick. “Our title sponsors HP and Carlton Woods, our tournament sponsors, committee, volunteers, the staff of Carlton Woods and the AJGA have been integral pieces for making this quality tournament possible. We are grateful to have so many great friends and resources in the community to create a first-class event that in the end benefits these fine junior boys, our community and so many wonderful charities.”

The tournament returns to the AJGA schedule in 2013 and will be played Feb. 15-18 at The Club at Carlton Woods.
