Burlington, Ont. (June 17, 2016) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) will be at the New Course at Hidden Lakes Golf Club in Burlington, Ont., this weekend. Both Junior and Linkster Tours will play the course. Junior Tour golfers will be looking to earn an exemption to CJGA PING Canadian Junior Match play or the CJGA Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship.
Formerly known as the Lake Medad Golf and Country Club, Hidden Lake Golf Club opened its doors as a straightforward and enjoyable, 18-hole layout in 1962. Much has changed since 1962 as Hidden Lake Golf Club has expanded into two exceptional, but very distinct, championship courses that cover over 500 acres of picturesque Niagara Escarpment landscape. The atmosphere inside the clubhouse is warm and friendly; the clubhouse caters to both individuals and groups alike.
The New Course is the longer of the two courses. Water comes into play on four holes, but it is the contoured greens that provide the real difference. The New Course is more of a target golf course. You must be constantly thinking about where you want to position yourself for your next shot. Numerous ponds, bunkers and long fescue grasses give the New Course a links-style feel. It measures 6,645 yards.
June 18 – Round One – 11:30 a.m.
June 19 – Round One – 2:00 p.m.
