Six students from the Edge School golf program travelled to British Columbia this past weekend for the CJGA event held at the Sunshine Coast Golf Club.
The group arrived at the course late Saturday afternoon in time to walk all 18 holes and make a few notes on how to play the tricky layout just outside of the town of Gibsons. Sunday, the golfers enjoyed the practice round after the snow melted off the greens. The biggest adjustment seemed to be how the heavy air and sea level elevation knocked yards off the flight of the ball.
Grade 12 student Kelsey Major fired rounds of 88 and 87 to finish 2nd in the girls division and earn a spot in the Veritas World Junior Championships held in July. Grade 11 student Geoff Fry was low among the guys on the trip finishing 4th with rounds of 78 and 77. Grade 9 student Mike Martin was 7th in the Boys 11-14 category with a pair of 82’s. Edge students Luc Boutin, Jonathan Fry and Daniel Ahn also competed in the event.
Head Coach Randy Robb and school sports psychologist Matt Brown were quite pleased with how the group performed and watched some great golf over the weekend.
The next junior tour event for the Edge students will be the MJT tournament at Paradise Canyon in Lethbridge late in April.
