Juniors Set to Compete at Humber College PGM Western Junior Championship presented by Tour Performance LAB

Surrey, B.C. (March 14, 2017) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) Junior Tour will head to Northview Golf and Country Club this week for the Humber College PGM Western Junior Championship presented by Tour Performance LAB. The event will take place this Wednesday to Friday, March 15 to 17. Junior golfers across Western Canada will compete in the event in the first regional championship of the year.

The tour will give juniors an opportunity to qualify for the BC Junior Boys Championship at Squamish Valley Golf Club in Squamish, B.C. on July 4 to 7, 2017 and the AJGA Junior Championship in Ontario on August 7 to 10, 2017.

The CJGA recently announced its renewed partnership with Humber College with the Humber College Professional Golf Management program for the 2017 season. This tournament is the first of three that Humber College will be hosting over the 2017 season.

Northview Golf and Country Club is the proud home of the most exciting and challenging golf courses in British Columbia. Designed by the incomparable Arnold Palmer, the two layouts reflect his dashing “go for broke” style tempered by his true respect for the game. The Canal Course stretches to 7,100 yards of serene golf in the tradition of the old links land. Wide fairways and undulating greens await players who prefer their golf to be challenging, yet undisturbed from the sounds of everyday life.
