Cypress Lake Country Club hosts 20th Annual Henke Berg Junior Masters Golf Tournament
Cypress Lake Country Club will host the 20th Annual Nolan Henke Patty Berg Junior Masters, July 18 - 20. The public is invited to attend the tournament. The Junior Masters is a Junior Golf Scoreboard ranked tournament open to junior golfers from around the world. This year’s field of more than 80 players includes many top area junior golfers as well as juniors from Australia, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Switzerland, Bolivia and Italy. Past tournament winners include LPGA and PGA tour players.
“Cypress Lake Country Club has hosted 18 of the 20 Junior Masters events. Current Cypress Lake Country Club member and PGA Professional George McNeill won the first two Nolan Henke Patty Berg Junior Masters when he was a North Fort Myers High School player,” said Ed Rodgers, general manager at Cypress Lake Country Club. “Golf at Cypress Lake Country Club is very popular among the young players as it’s a course designed to walk and gallery, the perfect match for the Nolan Henke Patty Berg Junior Masters.”
The Junior Masters was established 20 years ago by the Southwest Florida Junior Golf Association as a premier 54-hole tournament to provide an opportunity for juniors to showcase their talents and fund a college scholarship program for its members. The concept was to honor golf’s past, present and future as represented by its tournament namesakes, the late LPGA great and Hall of Fame member Patty Berg (founding Cypress Lake Country member) and local PGA professional Nolan Henke (current Cypress Lake member), as well as local juniors who represent the future of the game. The scholarship fund has given more than $200,000 to graduating seniors and upperclassmen from its organization.
Located at 6767 Winkler Rd. in Fort Myers, Cypress Lake Country Club is a member-owned, private country club with more than 280 members. Since the opening in 1959, Cypress Lake Country Club has provided an award-winning private country club golf experience to Southwest Florida players and has been selected to Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses list. Members enjoy access to golf and tennis as well as social and dining experiences at the clubhouse. For more information, please call 239-481-1333 or visit www.cypresslakecc.com.
