Alberton, ON (July 9th, 2017) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association is happy to host the CJGA Junior at Heron Point early this week at the fantastic Heron Point Golf Club in Alberton, ON. Juniors will be looking to have solid rounds at Heron Point Golf Club to kick start the second week of their summer vacations. Heron Point was the stage for Mike Weir’s Canadian Masters win in 1997 before going on to his career on the PGA Tour.
The golf course was designed by Canadian Thomas McBroom in which he blended three different golf course themes into one beautiful course that has one of the best finishing holes in Canada. The combination of Carolina lowlands, Canadian parklands and links style golf provides a peaceful walk for golfers. The greens are well protected and feature runoffs, ramps and mixed contours. Juniors should be prepared for a number of forced carries over the lake or the environmentally sensitive areas on the course. The beautiful 18th hole calls for a long carry from the tee which always provides for a great finish.
Juniors should prepare to drink lots of water as the temperatures on Monday and Tuesday should be hovering around 25 degrees but feeling more like 30 degrees with the humidity. The forecast predicts a 40% chance of showers during both days at the tournament but it should not amount to more than 10mm.
The CJGA Junior at Heron Point will be officially ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard and Golf Ontario.
