Langley, BC (May 4th, 2023) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) travelled to Langley, British Columbia to kick off the BC Qualifier for Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship. This was the sixth CJGA Junior Tour event in the province of our 30th Anniversary season and the second of three Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship Qualifiers the CJGA is hosting this season.
CJGA players, parents, and staff were treated to some great weather and sunny skies, which led to more than ideal conditions and low scores. Major credit to Newlands Golf and Country Club, as they did a wonderful job hosting and accommodating the event.
