CN Future Links, Canada’s national junior golf program, is set to host the second of three national stops at the 2014 RBC Canadian Open in Montreal from July 21-27 as part of the interactive, safety-inspired Community Tour.
Together, CN and Golf Canada host the Community Tour events to provide the opportunity for juniors to engage in friendly putting, chipping and driving activities while continuing to practice a safety-first mentality.
The first stop on the Tour took place last month at the Sarnia Kids Fun Fest, in Sarnia, Ont. Attendees included Mike Bradley (mayor of Sarnia), CN and Golf Canada staff, as well as hundreds of local juniors and parents. Among the juniors were students from 15 local schools which CN recently adopted into the Golf in Schools program to coincide with the Community Tour launch.
“The success of the first Community Tour event goes a long way in showing CN’s support and commitment to getting golf into communities and exposed to Canada’s youth,” said Jeff Thompson, Chief Sport Officer at Golf Canada. “We are looking forward to extending our shared values once more at next week’s Community Tour stop.”
The CN Future Links Community Tour is also open to adults to test out their skills and earn a chance to win unique prizing courtesy of CN.
Claude Mongeau, President and CEO of CN, is thankful for the opportunities CN Future Links and junior golf have provided.
“Youth golf has provided us a valuable platform to make a significant impact in the communities in which we operate,” he said. “We are pleased to take an active role in helping Golf Canada and the PGA of Canada grow junior golf across the country.”
The third and final stop on tour this season will take place at the Saskatoon Exhibition from Aug 5-10.
