Over 100 junior golfers have qualified and are signed up for this year’s Future Links Western Canadian Championships July 10-13, 2017 at the Fernie Golf and Country Club. The young golfers aged 13-18 are coming from all over Western Canada and Ontario to participate in what has become the premier junior golf circuit in Canada. Max Sherwood, the new FGCC General Manager and Golf Pro implemented a number of initiatives this season at the Fernie club to encourage young golfers to come out and play. “Hosting this junior event is a great opportunity for the whole community. This is going to be an exciting event on so many levels, but especially for the young golfers at our club.” The public is invited to watch the competitors July 11, 12 and 13 from 8:30am to 2pm from the clubhouse deck.
