The 25th Anniversary Season of the McLennan Ross Alberta Junior Golf Tour got off to a fantastic start Thursday over the slick, rolling greens and lush fairways at the Innisfail GCC. Long regarded as one of Alberta’s most challenging courses, the 27-hole central Alberta layout proved to be more than enough challenge to 50 two-person teams of junior golfers paired with family members or friends in a Parent/Child format. Teams were on hand from as far north as Edmonton to as far south as Brooks, with many of the partnerships consisting of younger junior competitors getting their first taste of tournament competition. We’re not sure if the kids were more nervous than their parents, grandparents, brothers or close buddies, but judging from the smiles on the faces of the majority of the players throughout the day, I think the big winner today was Junior Golf.
