Rattlesnake Point to Host CJGA Linkster Tour

Milton, Ont. (June 23, 2016) – Rattlesnake Point Golf club, a ClubLink affiliate club, has begun their prep for the arrival of the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) Linkster Tour. Golfers will tee off on Saturday in one of CJGA’s six divisions ranging from ages 5-14.

Featuring 36 championship holes, the nine-hole Rattler Academy Course, a state-of-the art 18-acre facility and a spectacular 35,000 square-foot clubhouse, RattleSnake Point Golf Club is the perfect place for golf, business, dinner or party.

The nine-hole executive Rattler Academy Course will play host to the event this weekend. Playing between 1200-1500 yards, the shorter course is ideal for the Linkster Tour, giving the competition opportunities to score well.

With dramatic flair and strategic intelligence, acclaimed architect Thomas McBroom fashioned each 18-hole course as a distinctive test. A big course with robust character, the CopperHead wanders through valleys and woodlands with the occasional water pond or creek to avoid. The links-style SideWinder follows the rolling terrain of the region with plenty of humps and bumps that challenge your imagination and shot-making.

With five sets of tee decks, players of all abilities can have fun, but both courses stretch past 7,000 yards, making it a perfect venue for respected tournaments such as the Canadian PGA Seniors’ Championship won by Jim Rutledge in 2010. It is a regular venue for the qualifying round for the PGA Tour’s RBC Canadian Open, as well.

Schedule

June 25 – Round one – 10:00 a.m.
