The Courses

ChampionsGate Golf Club's International & National Courses will both continue to be in the 2021 rotation. The newly renovated International Course, is a beautifully styled coastal links course, which was remodeled to feel more like it's original design. The National Course is set up for players of all skill levels, as it offers scenic views, clever doglegs, and well maintained greens year round. Both courses being designed by Greg Norman, will provide golfers with a fun and great experience at the course.

Celebration Golf Club is a favorite location for this event and will continue to be one of the courses for 2021 Parent Child. Masters of golf course architecture Robert Trent Jones, Sr and Jr. combined their talents to create a course unlike any other in the region. It's lush, almost like a natural park with undulating swells and topography, a course reflective of the very best of every course they have created around the world.

Orange County National - Panther Lake Course will join in the course rotation for 2021. 

Entry Priority

Entries will be accepted based upon the order of receipt. Entries received after their respective age division is full (52 teams each) or after the close of entries, will be placed on an alternates list. Alternates will be contacted in the order of receipt of entry, if and when, a spot becomes available.

Age Divisions & 2021 Daily Course Rotation
