The Jupiter Hills Club is one of the top courses in the country and, starting Thursday, will be the host of the Florida Amateur Golf Championship. The top 168 amateurs in the state will convene in Tequesta on Thursday for one of the oldest and most prestigious amateur golf championships in the country.

Just like in PGA Tour events there will be a cut down to top 70 players and ties after the second round. Jupiter Hills also hosted the event in 2008. In addition it has had the honor of hosting the 1987 U.S. Amateur Championship as well as two U.S. Open Sectional qualifiers.

The winner of the Florida Amateur Championship moves on to the Mid-Amateur Championship where spots in prestigious tournaments like the U.S. Open or even a PGA Tour Card are on the line.
