Milton, ON – Beautiful Trafalgar Golf & Country Club will be home to the 2022 Ontario Bantam (U15) Boys & Girls Championship from August 2nd-3rd. Our up-and-coming Ontario youth will participate in 36 holes of stroke play competition and battle it out for their respective titles.
“Trafalgar is a place with great history and atmosphere; the course is fair but challenging and sets up wonderful for the bantam championship,” explained Jim Duggan, Head Professional at Trafalgar Golf & Country Club. “We look forward to hosting such a skilled group of young golfers.”
At this year’s event, all eyes will be on 2021 runner-up Carlee Meilleur (Loyalist G&CC). Meilleur has had a fantastic 2022 season, taking home the Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship in dominating fashion at only 14 years of age. Meilleur will look to keep the ball rolling as she faces off against other strong golfers such as the 2020 Peewee (U13) Girls’ Champion, Michelle Xing (Public Player) and 2022 Ontario Junior Girls Champion, Swetha Sathish (Hidden Lake Golf Club).
Golfers to watch on the boy’s side include Lucas Chi (Station Creek Golf Club) and Lucas Gilbart (Summit Golf & Country Club).
