ZONE 2 JUNIOR PROGRAM

Good day Zone 2 Juniors and Family.  I just wanting to send out a quick note commenting on some of the successes that I’ve become aware of over this past while.  I’m sure there are many many more and to those that haven’t come to light from other communities, CONGRATULATIONS on your victories and achievements in this very strange year.

Zone 2 juniors are posting some incredible scores and results on the Maple Leaf Golf Tour.  The Maple Golf Tour operates right across Canada and recently two events were held in the Okanagan at Predator and the Okanagan Golf Club.  At Predator, Ryan Vest and Cooper Humphreys won the Bantam and Juvenile categories respectively, while Kyle Mayner finished second in the Junior category.  Ryan sucessfully defended his title from 2019.  Kendra Jones Munk finished third in the Girls 15 – 19 category.  Honourable mentions also go to two of the names that I saw on the results sheet just because of ages are Joshua Laverdiere who finished 3rd in the pee wees in and Maddox Holliday who finished 4th in the girls under 15 division.

At the Okanagan Club Event, Cooper Humphreys once again finished first in Juvenile while Kyle Mayner won the Junior and Overall title with a fine 8 under par result.  Justin Towill and Adam Niles also finished in the top five.  Kendra Jones Munk finished tied for third in the Girls 15 – 19 category.  It’s very encouraging to see the number of our juniors participating and doing so very well on this tour.  Honourable mentions go to I think two of the names that I saw on the results sheet just because of ages are Joshua Laverdiere who finished 3rd in the pee wees in Vernon and Maddox Holliday who finished 4th in the girls under 15 division.

On the Maple Leaf BC  Order of Merit, Cooper Humphreys is in first place in the Juvenile Division, Kyle Mayner is in third place in the Junior Division, Maddox Holiday is in third place in the Girls U15 Division, Kendra Jones Munk is fourth in the Girls 15-19 and Ryan Vest is in 6th place in the Bantam Division.

WAY TO GO EVERYONE!

BC Amateur & Junior

I would like to recognize our current juniors that have made it into this year’s BC Amateur that will be held at the Okanagan Club next week, with the additional restrictions this year it has become a little harder to get a spot at this event. Look forward to seeing you there.

Wishing all of these Juniors an excellent 3 days at The Bear and the 2020 BC Juniors Provincial Champion will be declared out of this event.  Hope I haven’t missed anyone. We have a total of 28 players participating from Zone 2 and the large majority are current and past juniors.

Congratulations to all of you and as mentioned the list of you all participating is very encouraging and lets hope that things get somewhat back to normal for our 2021 Zone 2 Tour. The future looks bright for ZONE 2.  If I’ve missed anyone in my quick snap shot, please accept my apology and know that you really aren’t overlooked.

All the Best for the rest of this season and summer.

COVID 19 UPDATE RE:  JUNIOR TOUR

As a result of the outbreak of the Covid 19 Pandemic, the order of Via Sport and British Columbia Golf, and the need to enforce social distancing and other practices, it is not practical to conduct golf tournaments as a result there will be no Zone 2 tournaments this year as well as no provincial events this year.  We sincerely regret this decision, however it is in the best interests of the safety of golfers and volunteers.

ZONE 2 JUNIOR PROGRAM

The Goals of Zone 2 Junior Golf are to:

  1. Promote the sport of golf with junior golfers in the Zone (Thompson Okanagan Region)
  2. Provide an opportunity for our junior golfers to participate in a number of events that feature friendly competition. This group of tournaments is referred to as the Zone 2 Junior Tour
  3. Provide an opportunity to increase the level of skill
  4. Promote golf etiquette on and off the course
  5. Provide an opportunity to have fun, enjoy golf and form lasting friendships as a result

Zone 2 conducts its own Junior Golf Tour from April through June at courses throughout the Thompson Okanagan Region.  The 2020 Junior Tour starts at Osoyoos Golf & Country Club Saturday, April 11th.  Juniors are defined as 18 and younger as of the date of the event they wish to participate in.  Players are divided into three groups, Bantam: 14 and under; Juvenile: 15 & 16; and Junior: 17 & 18.  Events are open to both boys and girls.

In addition to the Junior Tour, the Zone holds the Zone 2 Junior Championship, to be held June 6th and 7th at Gallagher’s Canyon Golf & Country Club.

Many of our juniors who have participated in the tour have received scholarships to Canadian and U.S. colleges.
