With the golf season in full swing, Golf Canada, the PGA of Canada and title sponsor CN are anxiously awaiting the CN Future Links Junior Skills Challenge National Event.
Taking place on Sept. 27th, the National event brings together the top juniors from across Canada who have achieved the highest scores in their respective age groups. All results are uploaded to a national leaderboard, making the results public so that juniors and parents can see how they stack up against the competition.
The CN Future Links team will invite 24 of the top scorers to attend the event at The Angus Glen Golf Club in Toronto, the site of the 2014 World Junior Girls Championship. The list of invitees will be split up as follows:
- Girls 11 and under (5 players)
- Boys 11 and under (5 players)
- Girls 12 to 14 (4 players)
- Boys 12 to 14 (4 players)
- Girls 15 to 18 (3 players)
- Boys 15 to 18 (3 players)
CN is proud to give juniors the chance to partake in friendly Skills Challenge events through the safe, affordable programming of CN Future Links. The National Event is a celebration for juniors across Canada to be involved with the experience of friendly competition against some of the country’s top juniors.
Each participant will receive a travel subsidy from CN of $500, along with a welcome package from Titleist valued at $200. The winners of each age group will also receive an additional package from Titleist, valued at $300.
In addition, the male and female winner of the 15-18 event will be given an exemption into their local 2015 CN Future Links Championship event. So far this season, Golf Canada has hosted two CN Future Links Championships (Pacific, Ontario), boasting some of the best junior talent from across Canada.
PGA of Canada instructors running CN Future Links are encouraged to host Skills Challenge events to help their aspiring juniors earn a ticket to the National Event.
