St. Catharines, Ont. (August 25, 2016) – This year marks the 19th annual CJGA Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship. Taking place August 29 and running until September 1, this will be the second major event of the season for the CJGA. Once again, Rockway Vineyards in St. Catharines, Ont., will host the event.

The CJGA Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship is one of the most prestigious junior golf tournaments in Canada. Attracting players from across the country, the event consists of four rounds of stroke play competition. The event features a cut after the second round, leaving approximately 50% of the field to battle for divisional titles over the final two rounds.

“The CJGA is very excited to host the 19th running of this event once again at Rockway Vineyards,” said Glen Hall,  Tournament Director. “The field at this tournament is always the strongest of the year and this year is no different. It will be an exciting four days of golf!”

Rockway Vineyards presents 18 challenging and picturesque holes for all competitors. Beautiful vineyards surround the course, as it lies directly in the well-known Niagara Wine Trail. The North-American design of the course features many challenges for golfers, from tough, but large greens to prominent water features throughout. From the back tees, Rockway Vineyards spans over 6900 yards and plays to a par-72 for the public.
