CJGA Juniors and Linksters Head to Greenhills Golf Club

Richmond Hill, ON (June 4, 2015) This upcoming weekend Greenhills Golf Club will be hosting both the CJGA Junior at Greenhills and the CJGA Linkster Ontario Series in the lively London, ON. With a promising sunny forecast in the mid-twenties, scoring conditions should be ideal for players.

The one-day CJGA Linkster Ontario Series at Greenhills Golf Club is the sixth event of the series and will be one to watch. Players in the two-day Junior Tour event will be working hard to try and gain exemptions into national tournaments; AJGA/CJGA Junior Championship, CJGA PING Canadian Junior Match Play Championship and the CJGA Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship. These national tournaments will be happening later in the summer and will be featuring some of Canada’s best players.

Greenhills Golf Club is a special place with a Member-friendly course, quiet setting, and a strong connection to London. Greenhills Golf Club, which comprises an 18-hole championship course and a nine-hole academy course, opened in 1975. It has stood the test of time, nicely balancing challenging greens with roomy fairways as it winds along the banks of Dingham Creek.
