Innisfil, Ont. (June 10, 2016) -The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) travels north this weekend for its second event in the Georgian College Junior Series on the CJGA Junior Tour at National Pines Golf Club. Junior Tour golfers will be competing in their respective divisions for the opportunity to represent Team Canada East at the 2016 U.S Kids Golf Teen World Championship, which will be held at Pinehurst, North Carolina next month.

The U.S Kids Golf Teens World Championship is a truly unique tournament with a total field size exceeding 1000 golfers over the last four years. The event has most US states and over 20 countries from around the world represented. The five-day tournament format includes: opening and closing ceremonies, practice rounds, a three-day tournament as well as other activities.

National Pines which opens with a front-nine meadowlands layout, transforms its personality as it routes through the thick stands of pines on the back nine. On most holes, strategic decisions need to be made off the tee, offering the choice of a demanding high risk-high reward drive (including nine forced carries) or a more conservative line. National Pines Golf Club also requires players to think their way through the course in order strategically position approach shots into the undulating greens.

Schedule

June 11 – Round One – 12:00 p.m.

June 12 – Round Two – 12:00 p.m.
