Western Canada’s top junior golfers are in Steinbach this weekend at Quarry Oaks Golf Course taking part in the Golf Canada Next Gen Prairie Championship.
The 54 hole event features players from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Western Ontario.
As the host course, Quarry Oaks has been a busy to start the month of June with the recently completed Manitoba Match Play Championship presented by St. Vital Dental Clinic just wrapping up this past Sunday.
“It is very rewarding and exciting for our course to host these great championships, we want to be sure to put on a good show for all the competitors and give them a very positive experience of Quarry Oaks” said Quarry Oaks Head Professional Darren Hayden. “Golf Manitoba & Golf Canada have been great partners to work with on these events and enjoy the relationship we have with them. We are proud of how the events have turned out and trust that the events were received in a positive light by all involved. As a host course we hope to gain great exposure to golfers who are not familiar with the quality of our facility”.
The top 6 male competitors (including ties) will earn a spot in the upcoming Canadian Junior Boys Championship, presented by BDO, August 7-10, at Rivershore Estates & Golf Links in Kamloops, B.C. The top 6 female golfers (including ties) will also earn exemptions into this year’s Canadian Junior Girls Championship, July 25-29, at The Marshes Golf Club in Ottawa, Ont.
The starting field will feature 89 players – 67 Junior Boys and 22 Junior Girls – vying for a spot in their respective Canadian Junior Championship later this summer.
