King City, ON (August 16th, 2017) – The Canadian Junior Golf Association is preparing to host the CJGA Junior at Kings Riding in King City, ON from August 17th-18th. This tournament is the last chance for juniors qualified for the Mizuno Championship to fine tune their game in a CJGA event.
Kings Riding is a Scottish links style golf course that will present juniors with open entries to greens, fescue-framed fairways and massive putting surfaces with gently rolling terrain and high points that will give the players and spectators spectacular views. Juniors will be challenged by the strategically sophisticated course lay out which gives them risk and reward shot options. Kings Riding was the host of the Canadian PGA Championship in 2000.
This event will be officially ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard.
