Junior golf tour tees off


The Sea to Sky Junior Tour is back, and organizers are looking for young golfers from 12 to 18 years old to fill one of 40 open spots at each event of the tour.

There are seven events altogether, starting with the opener at Chateau Whistler on July 4, and ending at Nicklaus North on Aug. 29. Other events will be held at Whistler Golf Club, Squamish Valley, Furry Creek, Pemberton Valley, and Big Sky.

For golfers who are already club members, the cost is $20 for each stop of the tournament. Members have to pre-pay for all of the events.

For non-members the cost is $30, or $160.50 (including GST) for all seven events.

The cost of registration includes green fees, halfway hut snacks, prizes and a dinner at the club.
