Stouffville, Ont. (April 28, 2016) – Rolling Hills Golf Club will host over 100 members from the Canadian Junior Golf Association’s Junior and Linkster Tours this weekend.
CJGA Junior Tour will play the Bethesda Grange course, while the CJGA Linkster Tour will play the classic course. Junior golfers who win their division titles will earn an invitation to represent Team Canada in the North America Cup.
Bethesda Grange Golf Course, not overly long by modern standards, nonetheless presents significant challenges in other ways. Bunkers and closely mown collection areas around the greens can thwart many potential birdies, so course management is at a premium
The small greens on the 4,010-yard Classic Course are very challenging targets and present a great opportunity to tune up your short game. The “grip it and rip it” golfer will enjoy challenging some of the medium-length par 4s with the driver.
