Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON – The 2022 Ontario Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship gets underway at the scenic Spring Lakes Golf Club from June 21-23.
With 54-holes available for play, competitors will be playing the East 18 at Spring Lakes. The East Golf Course is the longest and most demanding of Spring Lake’s three courses. Stretching over 7000 yards in length and riddled with several creeks and streams, golfers should not underestimate the difficulties they may encounter with this course. This challenging layout will test the Mid-Amateur field and make for an exciting championship event.
“Hosting the 2022 Ontario Mid-Amateur event in June will be a tremendous honor for the club, our members, volunteers and the players. Our team is gearing up for a wonderful golf week, and we look forward to hosting this special event. Spring Lakes is proud of our long-standing and supportive relationship with Golf Ontario over many years, and we look forward to the future“, mentioned Bob Lean, Owner & P.G.A. Professional.
2021 winner and 4-time champion of the Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship, Dave Bunker (Cherry Hill Club), will be looking to repeat after an incredible playoff performance in last year’s tournament. Another player to keep an eye on would be 2021 and 2022 Men’s Match Play Champion Charles Fitzsimmons (Thornhill Club). Ryan Tsang (Cedar Brae Golf Club), the 2020 Champion, also returns looking to reclaim the title he once held.
Tee-off for round one is set for Tuesday, June 21 at 8:30 am, featuring Tsang, 2021 Ontario Senior Men’s Champion Ashley Chinner (Coppinwood Golf Club) and Fitzsimmons. For more information on the championship and follow the leaderboard, check out our Golf Genius tournament page.
