The West Kootenay Junior Golf Circuit tees off this weekend in Balfour.
“The junior circuit is designed to introduce kids of all skill levels to competitive golf,” says circuit organizer Rob McKay. “It is also intended to provide the elite golfer with an avenue to hone their skills to compete at the provincial, national and international level.”
This year’s circuit will include six open events, the BC Junior qualifier, the Johnny Bucyk (which requires a player to qualify) and the circuit championship (for the top 20 players after the six open events).
The Balfour event will tee off on Saturday morning.
Nelson’s Granite Pointe will host the juniors on Saturday, May 4.
Other open events include: Christina Lake (May 5), Castlegar (May 25), Creston (June 3), and Champion Lake (June 8).
The circuit championship returns to Balfour on June 16 when the Top 20 players will compete for the overall title.
Each open event costs $20 for 18 holes and $10 for nine holes (for ages 12 and under).
