Burlington, Ont. (August 17, 2016) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) Nike Golf Junior Championship is set to take place at Hidden Lake Golf Club this weekend. The championship brings together division winners from 8 Nike Golf Junior Series events, held across Canada over the course of the season. Considered among one of the top national junior events in Canada, the Nike Golf Junior Championship is an event like no other on the CJGA schedule.

Beginning on Friday, an elite field of junior golfers will compete on the New Course at Hidden Lake, in Burlington, Ontario. Originally opened in 1962, the course has since gone under extensive renovations. One major change has been the expansion into two, very distinct, championship courses.

“We are delighted to be welcoming our juniors to this years Nike Golf Junior Championship at Hidden Lake” stated Brad Parkins, COO of the CJGA.  “It is a testament to the juniors that are playing in the event and their accomplishments during the 2016 season.”

The New Course, the longer of the two courses, offers generous fairways, contoured greens and a number of ponds that come into play on four holes. Hidden Lake is a par 71 and measures at 6,743 yards from the tips. The course will be an excellent challenge of disciple for junior golfers, requiring length, accuracy and consistent focus.

Schedule

August 19 – Round One – 1:30 p.m.

August 20 – Round Two – 1:30 p.m.

August 21 – Round Three – 1:30 p.m.
