The Québec champions will be identified!

Montréal, July 2, 2019 – Now that summer is in full swing, the Provincial Amateur and Junior Tours are visiting every corner of the province. The stakes will be high in the month of July as new provincial champions will be crowned in every category. 

Men’s Provincial Tour 

Golfers who participate in the Men’s Provincial Tour presented by Turkish Airlines in collaboration with belairdirect will be quite busy as the three events composing the Men’s Triple Crown will be presented in July. Québec athletes will get an opportunity to showcase their skills in the Alexander of Tunis, Duke of Kent, and Men’s Provincial Amateur Championship.

In the 2018 edition of the Provincial Championship which was held at the Windmill Heights Golf Club in Notre-Dame-De-L’Île-Perrot, Loick Laramée (Drummondville) captured the victory. Runner-up Julien Sale (Rivermead) had won the titles in the two other tournaments to finish first on the Triple Crown Order of Merit.

At the end of this series of events, the top three (3) players on the Triple Crown Order of Merit will represent Golf Québec at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship to be held in Hammond Plains and Timberlea, Nova Scotia, from August 5 to 8, 2019.

 

Women’s Provincial Tour

In the Women’s Provincial Tour presented by Turkish Airlines in collaboration with belairdirect, competitors will visit St-Liguori for the Provincial Amateur and Senior Championships that will be held at Club de golf Montcalm from July 14 to 16.

This will be the second and final leg of the Jocelyne Bourassa Series, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Integrated in the Series when it was created, the women’s senior competition is also turning 50 years old.

 

Junior Provincial Tour

In the Junior Provincial Tour presented by Daigneau, eau de source naturelle in collaboration with Turkish Airlines, golfers will want to reserve their agendas to participate in one of the July 8 Provincial Junior Championship qualifiers to be held at Hawkesbury and Lotbinière.

The 25th edition of the Girls’ Provincial Junior Championship will be held at Montcalm, from July 14 to 16, in conjunction with the Women’s Provincial Amateur and Senior Championships.

In 2018, Céleste Dao (Summerlea) dominated the event before winning the Canadian Junior Championship two weeks later. She had captured the victory ahead of Élizabeth Labbé (Lorette) and Emily Romancew (Elm Ridge).

For their competition, the boys will travel to the Rockland Golf Club, in Ontario, where the Provincial Junior Championship will be held form July 31 to August 1.

Last year, Laurent Desmarchais (Vallée du Richelieu) was crowned. Rémi Chartier (Royal Montreal) and Logan Boucher (Summerlea) tied for second to stand atop the podium.
