Team Ontario heads south for exciting Can/Am Matches & training

Following two very successful training camps at Bishops Gate Golf Academy in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida, in December and February, Team Ontario is excited for another opportunity to train in warm weather.  This time it will be in beautiful Surfside Beach, South Carolina.  The Team will fly to Myrtle Beach on Sunday March 10th and have 5 full days of training before the annual Can-Am Matches.

Team training will begin Monday March 11th and we are excited have the opportunity to practice and play at the True Blue Golf Club, Prestwick Golf and Country Club, The Reserve Golf Club, and Wachesaw Plantation (host of the Matches).

All 14 Team Ontario athletes will be making the trip to South Carolina.  We are also very excited to have the addition of four Ontario athletes who are currently on Team Canada’s National Development Team. Ellie Szeryk, Monet Chun, Emily Zhu and Sarah Beqaj will join them in this years matches for the girl’s side and Freddy D’Angelo will complete the team of 8 on the boy’s squad.
