Linksters Take on Strong Winds and Rolling Greens at Turnberry

Final Tournament Results

Richmond Hill, ON (June 22, 2015) It was a great father’s day weekend for the Linksters and their parents at Tunberry Golf Club for the CJGA Linkster Ontario Series at Turnberry. With Clear skies, great weather provided the Linksters with a great round of golf at this picturesque course.

With undulating topography and exceptional green contours, golf at the “Short Course” provided visual interest, variety and a challenging atmosphere. The expansive tee decks, generous green complexes and strategic placement of bunkers made for a challenging experience for our Linkster golfers.
