BEAUCEVILLE, Que. – Club de golf Beauceville, founded in 1990 in Beauceville, Que., will host a field of 121 junior athletes from June 3-5 for the 2016 CN Future Links Quebec Championship. A total of six CN Future Links Championships are presented by Golf Canada in partnership with CN. These championships provide opportunities for junior golfers across Canada to develop their games in a safe and encouraging environment.
“Golf Canada is thrilled to work with Club de golf Beauceville for our third CN Future Links Championship this season,” said Justine Decock, Tournament Director. “The course will be a great test for a strong field. We look forward to seeing these athletes learn and grow through this competition.”
Charles-Éric Bélanger will represent the National Team Men’s Development Squad at the competition. The native of Quebec City collected second- and third-place finishes at last year’s Quebec and Ontario editions of the CN Future Links Championships. The 2015 CN Future Links Junior Boys Order of Merit winner is coming off a season in which he claimed the Canadian Junior Boys title.
Club de golf Beauceville member Louis-Michel Guay will make his debut on the CN Future Links circuit. The 18-year old from St-Isidore, Que., who was fifth on the Quebec Garçons Juniors Order of Merit in 2015, will try to translate his familiarity with the course into championship success.
The Junior Girls field will see the return of four of the top five finishers from the 2015 championship held at Golf Château-Bromont in Bromont, Que. Reigning Quebec Junior Match-Play Champion Sarah-Ève Rhéaume looks to improve upon last year’s runner-up result. Notre-Dame-de-L’Île-Perrot, Que., native Céleste Dao – the 2015 Quebec Junior Girls Champion – and Noémie Paré of Victoriaville, Que., will attempt to best their T3 finishes, while Rosemère, Que., product Brigitte Thibault seeks to build upon a 5th-place showing.
