The Prince Edward Island Golf Association is gearing up for a busy fall with a number pf programs and tournaments on the schedule says P.E.I.G.A. Executive Director, Ron MacNeill.
” Next week the Association is hosting the Atlantic Golf Championship at Fox Meadow. The 54 hole Atlantic Championship brings together the best men, women and senior golfers in the four Atlantic provinces to compete in both team and individual competition” said MacNeill.
The P.E.I. Association has 20 players competing in six divisions. If a P.E.I. player wins his or her division the P.E.I.G.A. provides them with an all expense paid trip to their respective 2017 Canadian national championship.
In September the Experience Hyundai Senior Men’s and Excel Accounting Senior Women’s tours resume play. “These tours are very popular and provide a great way for senior golfers to remain competitive ” said MacNeill.
2017 is a Canada Games year and throughout the fall and winter the P.E.I.G.A. Junior Development team will continue training under the direction of Provincial Golf Coach, Sean Joyce.
” As we move into fall Island golfers are still competing for Player of the Year honors through designated tournaments. Our top male, female, junior and senior golfers will be recognized by the Association at the end of the season ” said MacNeill.
” We have had a very busy year with a successful Amateur Championship at Dundarave and the Atlantic Junior Championship at Countryview. The ADL Junior Tour is experiencing a great season and most recently the Association organized a girl’s golf camp in partnership with the Belvedere Golf Club”said MacNeill.
“I think that 2016 may well be the Association most successful year ever. It has certainly been our busiest ” said MacNeill.
