The junior season comes to an end at Lachute
The Montréal-South team crowned in the 2017 Inter-Regional Championship
Montréal, September 5, 2018 – Golf Québec’s activities continue this week with the presentation of the 8th Inter-Regional Championship in which the best golfers aged between 11 and 16 years old coming from Québec and Eastern Ontario will defend their regional colours. The event will take place on September 8 and 9 at the Lachute golf club. This is the final leg of the 2018 Provincial Junior Tour presented by Daigneau Eau de Source. Later on, the Kanawaki Golf Club will be host to the Suzanne-Beauregard Commemorative Tournament on Monday, September 10. A group of 56 women’s twosomes will measure up to each other in a pleasant and friendly competition.
This Stableford competition will be divided in two rounds: the first played as a two-man Vegas format and the second featuring a two-man alternate stroke play. Each regional team will be composed of six boys (two juvenile players, two bantams, and two pee-wee) and two girls (juvenile, bantam, or pee-wee).
New this year, should there be a shortage of available competitive players, Golf Québec is enabling regional associations to complete their teams by recruiting players from other areas who were not appointed on their own local team. This substitution process is overseen by Golf Québec based on the best three scores registered in events of the Regional Junior Tours (RJT) this summer.
