CJGA to work closely with Bathurst Glen Golf Course and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) to develop today’s youth for tomorrow

Richmond Hill, ON (July 17, 2020) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) is pleased to announce a partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) through Bathurst Glen Golf Course which has become the Association’s new home. The CJGA will also be partnering with the David Fritz Golf Academy who will be conducting camps, clinics, and leagues for our youth, as well as adults (parents and friends of the CJGA).

The CJGA and TRCA recognize the future of our country lies with our youth, as our future voters, purchasers, employees, executives, and partners. Their success will be determined by the efforts we make today to develop their character, maturity, and personal growth, enabling them to take their rightful place in a highly competitive international environment.

The CJGA and TRCA believe that through this partnership, our youth can develop their skills through programs we will be creating today and in the future. By helping junior golfers develop these skills regardless of their economic means, will ultimately help build a strong future for Ontario and Canada, especially its youth.

“We are delighted to partner with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, along with Bathurst Glen Golf Course,” said Earl Fritz, Executive Director, CJGA. “TRCA and Bathurst Glen Golf Course are great organizations that will help to increase the opportunities for our youth in Ontario and Canada. The options that the CJGA can provide through our various programs will give greater exposure and opportunities for junior golfers in Ontario and Canada.”

“As a leader in resource conservation and management, we are excited to partner with the Canadian Junior Golf Association, to make Bathurst Glen Golf Course its new home,” said Richard Ubbens, Director, Parks and Culture, TRCA. “Managing land for the present and future enjoyment of communities is core to TRCA’s purpose. For these reasons, TRCA is thrilled to be partnering together with CJGA to give youth opportunity, allowing for the development of life skills, and ability to enjoy time outdoors. We look forward to seeing youth grow as they participate in learning and fun.”
