Richmond Hill, Ont. (June 3, 2016) – This weekend will be the final Nike Golf Junior Series event of the season. The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) Junior Tour will have their final opportunity to qualify for the quickly approaching, Nike Golf Junior Championship. For this event, Junior Tour golfers will be playing on the ClubLink’s Diamondback Golf Club

This Richmond Hill course, which opened in 1993, appears daunting with its humps, bumps and forced carries. But it is surprisingly playable for less skilled golfers, while better players have a great time attacking it and meeting the challenges doled out by designer Rene Muylaert.

The front nine is defined by hill and dale and lots of water, while the mature-looking back nine dips into valley lands carved out of thick trees. The island green on No. 8 is one of many highlights. The dramatic bunkering and varied green sites are key parts of DiamondBack’s diabolical charms.

Schedule
July 4 – Round One – 8:00 a.m.

July 5 – Round Two – 8:00 a.m.
