Fox Creek Golf Club Announced as 2020 NB Junior Girls Host Club
For Immediate Release:
Golf New Brunswick (Golf NB) is excited to announce that the 2020 NB Junior Girls Championship will be held at Fox Creek Golf Club in Dieppe, New Brunswick on July 5th-7th.
Originally scheduled to take place with the NB Ladies Provincial Championship at Lakeside Golf & Country Club, following the unfortunate cancellation of the event, Fox Creek was presented with the opportunity to become the host venue for the NB Junior Girls Championship.
“We are very proud to be hosting this event”, said Louis Melanson, General Manager of the Fox Creek Golf Club. The growth of the female game in the Province is a priority for Golf NB and a significant influence in our decision to continue with the 2020 NB Junior Girls Championship. The increased registration numbers for the NB Junior Girls’ Championship, combined with the 2021 Canada Summer Games implications were contributing factors in the committee’s decision to move forward with the event as scheduled.
With three championships up for grabs, Girls Bantam (Under 15), Juvenile (Under 17) and Junior (Under 19) titles, as well as valuable Canada Games points, there will be lots to play for on the 6,900 yard, Graham Cooke layout, that will provide a true test of golf for all competitors.
Golf New Brunswick (Golf NB), a not-for-profit organization founded in 1934, is the official governing body for amateur golf in New Brunswick. In January of 2006, the New Brunswick Golf Association (NBGA) officially merged with the New Brunswick Ladies Golf Association (NBLGA), resulting in one united governing body for amateur golf in the province.
