LJT George Hannon Invitational
The Hills Country Club
The George Hannon Invitational was the brainchild of the Hannon Cup Society, a group dedicated to the preservation of the character and ideals of George “Coach” Hannon. Hannon is a PGA Professional who is best known for coaching the University of Texas Golf Team to two National Championships and for recruiting future Hall of Famers Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite. In 2010, the Hannon Cup Society asked the Legends Junior Tour to administer an elite junior tournament that would showcase Austin’s best golfers and golf courses. This annual event will rotate between some of Austin’s finest facilities. The legend of George “Coach” Hannon and his commitment to junior golf will continue to be exemplified through the coming years of the George Hannon Invitational.
