2021 Schedule for McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Tour released
Alberta Golf (Calgary) – A new year comes a new schedule for the McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Tour presented by Crowe MacKay and a brand new tournament registration process. 2020 saw decade-high participation in the Alberta Golf owned and operated development tour and 2021 should be no different.
In year’s past junior tour registration has been controlled by each individual club, but in 2021 there will be centralized registration through the Alberta Golf Juniors website on Thursday April 1st at noon using our new Golf Genius Software. Please ensure your Golf Canada Score Centre profile is updated in order to register for events. Alberta Golf’s Manager of Competitions John Deneer says the new registration process will be easier and more efficient for everyone involved and is excited to work with the host clubs again.
“We are very excited to partner with golf clubs throughout the province and continue to offer junior golfers in Alberta the opportunity to experience tournament golf, build their comfort and confidence in the competitive environment and gain a better understanding of the Rules of Golf,” said Deneer. “The tour is a great starting point for many of these young, talented and competitive junior golfers!”
McLennan Ross LLP returns as title sponsor of the tour, Partner Tom Ross is proud his Alberta based law firm can support what this tour provides.
“McLennan Ross is proud to sponsor the McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Tour, which is in its 26th year,” said Ross. “Golf is a great source of fun, fellowship, and outdoor exercise (which we especially need right now), and it is also a game that helps build character. The tour provides junior golfers a tremendous opportunity to learn, compete and develop as individuals through the game of golf, and we look forward to another great season in 2021.”
As always there will be proper age divisions and yardages that fit the appropriate age categories and the tour has a fantastic schedule with over 20 events all across the province with all clubs returning for the 2021 season and time to add a few more tour stops before the April 1st registration.
Dunc Mills has been the tournament director for all 25-years the tour has been operating and is excited to be back for his 26th season to create a fun, learning and competitive atmosphere for the junior competitors.
“I’m really looking forward to the 2021 McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Tour season,” said Mills. “With the huge jump in interest in junior golf last year, the Tour should be even bigger and better than ever this summer. The tournaments are a great way for younger juniors to get their first taste of tournament experience, but also provide great competition on outstanding golf courses for older players as well.”
All events will be run under well thought out COVID-19 Protocols following AHS guidelines at the time. For more information on the McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Tour please visit our website Alberta Golf Juniors
