Joly, Que. – Golf Canada’s fourth junior golf championship of 2019 is set to begin Friday as the Future Links, driven by Acura Québec Championship gets underway at Club de golf Les Boisés de Joly.
With support from Golf Québec, the Future Links, driven by Acura Québec Championship is the fourth of eight junior championships presented in partnership with Acura this summer. The 54-hole stroke play tournament will begin with a practice round on June 6, before the tournament gets underway with round one on June 7.
Located less than an hour south of Québec City, Club de golf Les Boisés de Joly was completed in 2010. A Graham Cooke & Associates designed course, it boasts high-quality greens and unique architecture that makes the course one of the best in the region, and an ideal destination for golfers.
