Georgetown, Ont. (June 27, 2016) – The Greg Norman Golf Champions Academy CJGA Junior Series is upon us. Commencing on June 29 and running until July 1, the field of golfers will compete on the ClubLink’s Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Georgetown, Ont., in this 3 day event.

Eagle Ridge provides today’s golfer with that perfect combination: A mature course with modern features. Designed by Hall of Fame architect Robbie Robinson, Georgetown GC opened in 1958 as a lovely parkland course known for its wonderfully rambunctious character, complete with valleys, scenic views, elevated tee shots, and the Credit River that runs through the property.

Since it joined the ClubLink family and was renamed Eagle Ridge Golf Club, the course has undergone a series of upgrades, including significant renovations to tee boxes, bunkers and fairways.

Eagle Ridge is a classic strategic course, providing the golfer with plenty of options, but there are times when you have got to make the shot, such as the harrowing approach to the par-4 10th green set on a hillside guarded by giant stands of trees.

Schedule

June 29 – Round one – Shotgun: 8:00 a.m.

June 30 – Round Two – Shotgun: 8:00 a.m.

July 1 – Round Three – Tee times: 12:00 p.m.
