Richmond Hill, ON (September 11, 2015) – This weekend the CJGA is in Burlington, ON at Hidden Lake Golf Club for the first event of the Ontario Fall Series. It will prove to be an exciting weekend, with both Junior Tour and CJGA Linksters tackling the New Course at Hidden Lake. Players in the Junior Tour event are not only competing for order of merit points, but also for spots on CJGA Team Canada at the Aaron Baddeley International Junior Golf Championship. This prestigious event will take place from December 5-10, 2015 at La Costa Golf Club in San Diego, CA.
Since first opening its doors in 1962, Hidden Lake Golf Club has grown to include two championship golf courses: the Old Course and New Course. Measuring 6,712 yards, the more traditional Old Course features tree-lined fairways and small, flat greens. Playing slightly longer at 6,743 yards, the New Course is the epitome of modern golf. With more generous fairways, the New Course is protected by well positioned greenside bunkers and undulating greens. Numerous ponds, bunkers and long fescue grasses give the New Course a links-style feel.
The weather forecast is calling for light rain all weekend, with temperatures projected to be in the high teens.
