Linksters Head to Wyndance Executive Course

Richmond Hill, ON (July 15th, 2015) This Friday, Wyndance Golf Club will be hosting the 3rd 9-hole CJGA Linkster event of the season. With a field of 60 players, the tournament will be showcasing up-and-coming junior golfers ages 5-13.

This one-day event will be taking place at Wyndance’s historical executive 9-hole course. Located in Uxbridge, Ontario, it holds the distinction of being the first course in Canada designed by the legendary Greg Norman. Norman, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, crafted a beautiful course on a former gravel pit to create a breathtaking masterpiece.

Wyndance also features a first-class practice facility including a 2.75-acre range, 18,000 square-foot putting greens and a 7,600 square-foot chipping green with a practice bunker. The “Down Under” Academy course, which the Linksters will be playing, will provide a challenge for all.
