The final 2017 Canada Summer Games Selection Camp will be held March 15-17, 2017 at Northview Golf and Country Club, Surrey, BC and supported by the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA), a sanctioned BC Golf OOM tournament.
British Columbia Golf is the provincial sport organization in BC that oversees the Team BC program for golf at the multi-sport games.
Players who have participated in only one selection camp for the 2017 Canada Summer Games, must compete in this competition to be considered for team selection to represent British Columbia at the Games, being held in Winnipeg, Manitoba from August 8-11, 2017 at Southwood Golf and Country Club.
The Humber College PGM Western Junior Championship event will take place this Wednesday to Friday as junior golfers across Western Canada will compete in the first regional championship of the year.
The tour will give juniors an opportunity to qualify for the BC Junior Boys Championship at Squamish Valley Golf Club in Squamish, B.C. on July 4 to 7, 2017 and the AJGA Junior Championship in Ontario on August 7 to 10, 2017.
The CJGA recently announced its renewed partnership with Humber College with the Humber College Professional Golf Management program for the 2017 season. This tournament is the first of three that Humber College will be hosting over the 2017 season.
Northview Golf and Country Club is the proud home of the most exciting and challenging golf courses in British Columbia. Designed by the incomparable Arnold Palmer, the two layouts reflect his dashing "go for broke" style tempered by his true respect for the game. The Canal Course stretches to 7,100 yards of serene golf in the tradition of the old links land. Wide fairways and undulating greens await players who prefer their golf to be challenging, yet undisturbed from the sounds of everyday life.
