British Columbia Golf will be hosting a Provincial-Regional ID Camp on Saturday, May 7th, 2016 at Arbutus Ridge Golf Course, home of the 2016 BC Junior Boys Championship.

The training/ID camp will be led by two BC Provincial Golf Coaches, Jody Jackson and Matt Cella and is designed to identify juveniles and juniors on the competitive pathway for the "Introduction to Competition" and “Learn to Compete” stages of development under the Long Term Player Development Guide For Golf. The LTPD Guide can be found at

Sixteen players (16) will be accepted into the ID camp, both girls and boys are welcomed to register for the camp which includes assessment, skills testing, on-course management, tactical and other protocols as a part of the national junior development pathway and provincial athlete performance program for BC Golf and Golf Canada.

The ID Camp is strongly recommended for players considering:

  • Progression on the BC/Golf Canada Competitive Pathway
  • Identification for Provincial Team and/or Provincial Training Program
  • Opportunity for a pre-practice on Arbutus Ridge GC for BC Junior Boys Championship
  • Attend a pre-identification, athlete long list for the 2017 Canada Summer Games Team
  • Consideration for 2017 BC Teams traveling internationally, example: Eddie Hogan Cup Matches, North Pacific Team, plus performance results and other selection criteria for Teams

In addition, 2016 National Canadian Junior Boys Championship quotas (two) will be up for consideration as part of the ID or selection process as part of a new regional-provincial program format for 2016.
