Richmond Hill, ON (May 1, 2015) – The CJGA Linkster Tour is set to kick tomorrow the first of 35 national events with the CJGA Ontario Linkster Series at Rolling Hills Golf Club in Stouffville, Ontario. Juniors aged 13 and under will finally kick off the rust and compete in five age categories.

The Classic course at Rolling Hills Golf Club offers a variety of enjoyable playing options for golfers of all ages and skill levels. It’s rolling fairways almost all play up or downhill and is framed by many beautiful trees.

The small greens on the 4,010-yard Classic Course are very challenging targets and present a great opportunity to tune up the short game. The “grip it and rip it” golfer will enjoy challenging some of the medium-length par 4s with the driver. Don’t get over-confident, however, as strategically placed bunkers and small greens will make you pay for any shots that are off target.

The weather forecast is looking favourable for the junior golfers with temperatures projected to be in the low twenties.

The strong fields of juniors are sure to provide excitement on Saturday. Some player’s to keep an eye on are:
