CJGA Ontario Linkster Tour heads to Chedoke on the Weekend

Richmond Hill, Ont. (May 14, 2015) – Chedoke Golf Club is set to welcome a full field of young golfers this Sunday as the CJGA Linkster Tour is headed to the Hamilton, Ont. facility. Junior golfers 5-13 years of age will take to the greens at an event that is a part of the Ontario Linkster Series. This event will give juniors a chance to showcase their skills by playing the challenging Martin course at Chedoke.

More than a century of comfortable but challenging golf has attracted many players to the Martin Course for a game of golf. The Martin Course has always been that “small town” public course that people love to play time and again with family and friends. It remains the oldest course in the city.

The holes are straight forward for the most part, but demand accuracy to avoid trouble. The Martin Course has two sets of tees – playing 5,505 and 5,745 yards, par-70. There are five par 3s and three par-5’s (all on the front nine) and back-to-back par-3s on Nos. 3-4 and Nos. 16-17 and another thrown in on No. 10 for good measure. There are lots of big trees to be avoided on the fairways, while the putting surfaces are small by most standards and challenging to read with the escarpment in the background.

The weather forecast for Sunday calls for a beautiful and sunny day with temperature projected to be in the 20’s.
