Sudbury, ON – As we continue the 2022 Championship season, we are excited to welcome the 100th running of the Ontario Junior (U19) Boys Championship presented by Palladino Auto Group. Timberwolf Golf Club will host this year’s centennial tournament from July 5th-8th.
Timberwolf’s vast layout gives golfers an almost overwhelming sense of solitude as each hole provides spacious seclusion from the others. The oversized greens range from 5,500 square feet on the reachable par-five first hole to a mammoth 9,000 square feet on the par-three fifteenth hole.
“We’ve hosted several provincial and national competitions now, and every time they’ve proven to be tremendous competitions with great talent,” said Sam Yawney, Managing Partner at Timberwolf Golf Club/ Golf Sudbury. “We expect the 100th anniversary of the Ontario Junior Boys Golf Championship to be no different, so we’re looking forward to it.”
Yawney also expressed appreciation for the tournament sponsor by stating, “It’s also very exciting that the Palladino Auto Group has come aboard as title sponsor for this event. Their support will allow us to make this event even greater for the players and help us showcase our golf course and community to a new audience.”
With the Junior Boys back in action, we advise you to watch for some of our key young talents. Ben MacLean (Cherry Hill Club) is coming off back-to-back wins at the Junior Boys Spring Classic Championship and the NextGen Ontario Championship and is looking to add to his collection of hardware. Nathaniel Gray-Lamont (Cutten Fields), Ellis Kinnaird (Mississippi Golf Club) and Matthew Javier (Scarboro Golf & Country Club) also played some great golf at the Spring Classic and are hoping to keep up the hot start to the 2022 season. This tournament will be very tight and extremely exciting, with a large field of worthy competitors.
First-round tee-offs begin on Tuesday, July 5 at 8:00 am. For more information on the championship and follow the leaderboard, view our Golf Genius tournament page.
