Alberta Golf set to resume tournament play in June

McLennan Ross Alberta Golf Junior Tour starts July 2

Alberta Golf is set to get players back to tournaments later this month, the organization announced Thursday.

The first stop as the Championship schedule resumes for the summer is the 2020 Alberta Men’s Mid Amateur Championship, from June 23-25 at Coyote Creek Golf and RV Resort in Sundre. All major championships, which are typically 72-hole events, have been shorted to 54 holes.

The Alberta Open Championship is set for July 28-30 at Wolf Creek Golf Resort in Ponoka, with the Alberta Senior Men’s Championship to follow in Olds from Aug. 5-7. River Bend Golf and Recreation Area will hold the 2020 Alberta U17, U15 and U13 Championship on Aug. 18 and 19.

On-site access at tournaments will be limited to players only, no caddies or spectators will be allowed. Players will be required to sign a waiver and all new local rules will apply.

“Alberta Golf has spent a considerable amount of time in making this decision, focusing first and foremost on the desire and capacity of all host facilities as well as the overall player experience,” said Alberta Golf in a press release.

The McLennan Ross Alberta Golf Junior Tour, in its second season under the Alberta Golf umbrella, will also resume this summer.

Its first event will be July 2 at the Innisfail Golf Club. They will hold the Tour Championship, as is tradition on Aug. 28 at Wolf Creek Golf Resort in Ponoka. The tour, for kids between the ages of 10-18 also includes Central Alberta stops in Olds on July 15 and Camrose on July 22. There are 24 events total this summer.
