BROOKLIN, Ontario — With golf season in full swing, the Boston Pizza-presented Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT) continues to roll through Ontario with the 2019 MJT GTA Series at Lakeridge Links Golf Club on May 25 and 26, and young golfers are invited to register for this event on the MJT website.
Located in the rural town of Brooklin, Lakeridge Links has quickly emerged as an 18-hole championship course since its inception in 1989, with a variety of challenges that will test all components of the game. The young golfers will be playing 36 holes, a prime opportunity to play a course that is hosting one of the four qualifying sites for Golf Ontario’s Junior Boys U19 Match Play Championship.
Boys and girls will be contending for titles in seven age divisions as well as for exemptions into other major international tournaments such as the US Kids Golf World and Teen Championships in Pinehurst, NC, and the IMG Academy Junior World Championship in San Diego, CA. Entry fees also include tee gifts, an impressive array of prizes, and refreshments.
As Canada’s number one-played Junior Tour, the non-profit Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour encourages young golfers to play in professionally-run tournaments with the objective of improving skills through competition. More details on the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour can be found at www.maplejt.com.
