Linksters Set for National Tour Championship at Carlisle Golf Club

Richmond Hill, ON (September 1, 2015) –The pinnacle of the CJGA Linkster schedule takes place this week as juniors prepare to take their shot at the coveted title. Carlisle Golf Club in Burlington, ON plays host to the event for the second straight season, and the CJGA looks forward to yet another successful season finale. The event is the first of only two Tier 1 events on the Linkster schedule this season, and those who end victorious will see a boost to their CJGA National Order of Merit ranking.

Natural, gentle rolling fairways lined with natural whispering pine trees reminds you of South Carolina as you drive onto the Carlisle Golf Club property. As you play through the 27-hole layout, you will quickly experience a golf course with subtle turns that demands more placement shots rather than power. The greens are fairly large but you will find yourself with some monstrously breaking putts to challenge your game in all facets.

The forecast for the end of the week looks very promising, with sun abundant and high’s around 28 degrees each day.

The field for the CJGA Linkster National Tour Championship is one of the strongest all year, and many players have a shot to take home the title. Here are some players to keep an eye on throughout the tournament:
