Jr. Championship coming to Saugeen

Golf Ontario has announced a new 2020 championship schedule and the first event will be held at Saugeen Golf Club near Port Elgin.

The Ontario Junior (and Juvenile) Boys Championship will be played at the 27-hole facility from July 27-30.

With additional time needed to ensure that the championships are staged in the most safe and responsible manner possible given the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Golf Ontario says it has had to make significant revisions to the 2020 schedule.

The health and safety of all associated with Golf Ontario Championships continues to be our No. 1 priority, and our hope is to play a role – responsibly – in Ontario’s return to enjoying the things we love,” said Golf Ontario Executive Director Mike Kelly.

We have been working tirelessly with many key stakeholders (including local and provincial health authorities, surveys with our players and volunteers, and facilities) to ensure that we are able to run our championships in 2020 while adhering to key safety protocols.” 

Today’s announcement is another positive step for our players who are looking for provincial amateur competition, and we will also continue to ensure we are working closely with local leading public health authorities as we move forward.”

Online registrations for the NEW 2020 Golf Ontario championship schedule will begin on Wednesday, June 24 at 9:00 am.

Due to COVID-19 concerns and delays in starting the season, the schedule for 2020 will be a condensed version of a normal championship schedule for Golf Ontario.

Obviously we have had to make some changes to the 2020 schedule to accommodate a shortened playing season and revised host club availability, but we feel we have put together a very strong competition schedule on some of Ontario’s finest golf courses,” said John Lawrence, Manager, Rules and Competitions at Golf Ontario.

In addition, we have a strong list of safety protocols, and look forward to welcoming our players back to compete in Golf Ontario championships.”
