Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship Qualifier at Granite Ridge Recap

Milton, ON (May 4th, 2023) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) travelled to Milton, Ontario to kick off the Ontario Qualifier for Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship. This was the second CJGA Junior Tour tournament in the province of the 2023 CJGA season and the first 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 of the worst weather a golfer could ask for. It was cold, wet, and windy which led to hard course conditions but surprisingly high spirits at the lovely Granite Ridge Golf Course in Milton, Ontario.
