27th Abacoa Junior Senior
The Abacoa Junior Senior, sponsored and hosted by Abacoa Golf Club, will be a 36-hole Modified Alternate Shot/Better Ball Championship with teams comprised of a Junior golfer (49 years and younger) partnered up with a Senior golfer (50 years and older).
- First Round: Modified Alternate Shot – Both players tee off on every hole. You then play your partner’s drive for your second shot. After second shots have been played, one ball is selected to complete the hole and that ball must be played alternately until holed out.
- Final Round: Better Ball – Both players play their own ball and the lower score of the partners is the score for the hole.
The team stroke play competition will be hosted at Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida October 14-15, 2023.
The competition will consist of one division with points awarded towards each of the PBCGA Point Cup Races presented by The Golf Crypt, Jupiter: Open Points Cup, Senior Points Cup and the Super Senior Points Cup.

Since its inception in 1976, the Palm Beach County Golf Association has been a cornerstone to the many excellent golfers residing in Palm Beach County. For those of you who may not be familiar with the PBCGA, we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by local business leaders in 1976.
Our purpose is two-fold: First, we conduct approximately 20 championship each year while promoting amateur golf throughout South Florida. Our championships are the best of their kind anywhere and we strive to make them enjoyable for golfers of all ages. Second, we are committed to providing college scholarships while supporting the growth and development of deserving and worthy Florida students. We stand with our hand selected scholars while encouraging opportunity to build life skills and gain college preparedness through regular mentorship.
The PBCGA provides an opportunity for local amateur golfers to play the best golf courses in their local area and affords access to the top golf venues in South Florida. Nearly 600 amateur golfers compete in PBCGA championships throughout the tournament season (March – October).
Operated by Executive Director Jordan Schneider, the PBCGA along with a team of dedicated volunteers performs the day-to-day operations of the PBCGA from its Headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. The Association is served by an elected Board of Directors, headed by Chairman of the Board Michael Blum.
The Palm Beach County Golf Association has awarded over $460,000 to 185+ area college students to help with their college education. These scholarships have helped students pay for tuition, books and other fees so that they could be more dedicated to their studies.
PBCGA has partnered with Take Stock in Children – Palm Beach County to provide tuition scholarships to attend the Florida state college of their choice. Take Stock in Children is a statewide mentoring/scholarship program. The program enrolls middle school, low-income students and helps them succeed by providing college and vocational scholarships, volunteer mentors, student advocates, early intervention and long-term support.
For more than 40 years, the PBCGA and local South Florida businesses have partnered to provide the highest level of golf services to the Palm Beach County area. Continued support from local organizations such as the Arrigo Family, Tiger Woods Ventures, Jack & Barbara Nicklaus, Morell Studios, Palm Beach Kennel Club, Tire Kingdom, PGA TOUR and The Honda Classic is a testament to the longstanding support of PBCGA’s mission to give back. Assistance from local businesses, alumni and friends allows the PBCGA to dedicate more time and resources to programs that provide college scholarships to deserving and worthy students in Palm Beach County.
ABOUT ABACOA GOLF CLUB
Abacoa Golf Club is one of the finest public golf courses in South Florida. It was the last course designed by renowned course architect Joe Lee before his death. In typical Joe Lee style, Abacoa’s lakes and bunkers meet its sloping fairways with little obstruction, and you’ll find scenic views with 14 of its 18 holes surrounded by water. All of these features make the tees, greens, and fairways a pure pleasure to play.
This course is challenging but fair to golfers of all skill and experience levels, and unlike many Florida courses, Abacoa has real elevation changes. The greens are TifEagle grass, and the putting surfaces are of some of the highest quality in Florida. Treat yourself to a round at Abacoa!
