RDC Athletics set to partner with Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour

The RDC golf program is set to see what the future has to offer as the college’s athletic department has teamed up with the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT).

RDC Athletics will present the MJT Alberta Series event at Riverbend Golf Club on June 10 and 11, an opportunity for both the tour and RDC golf to reach a bigger audience.

“This is a great opportunity for our players, not only in our new Collegiate division but Juveniles and Juniors, to meet with the athletic director and learn about the programs offered and the future post-secondary possibility of attending Red Deer College,” said Trent Matson, National Operations Manager of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour in a press release.

For the college, it will be an opportunity to meet with prospective talent for the upcoming season.

Several players from the tour will also be invited to an high performance ID camp on June 12 at Lakewood Golf Resort in Sylvan Lake, the home course for the RDC Kings and Queens golf teams.

The purpose of the camp will be to rate various aspects of the potential prospects’ golf game, develop skill-sets with each athlete and help with the transition into college life. RDC Kings and Queens head coach Scott Bergdahl will oversee the skills camp.

“The Maple Leaf Junior Tour goes above and beyond to promote the game of golf and provide an avenue for junior and collegiate golfers around Canada an opportunity to develop their skills.

“Our values mirror each other, continually striving to develop our young athletes, and I look forward to working with the MJT for years to come,” Bergdahl said.
