Sawmill GC Hosts Ontario Peewee (U13) Boys’ and Girls’ Championship August 30-31

Uxbridge, ON – Golf Ontario’s next provincial championship will host the youngest of the aspiring golfers in Ontario. As we head down to wine country from August 30th to 31st, Sawmill Golf Course is thrilled to be hosting the 7th annual Ontario Peewee (U13) Boys’ and Girls’ Championship.

 

The beautiful course located on the roots of an old dairy farm is characterized by gently rolling hills, deciduous forests, and two meandering creeks. Designed by Gord Witteveen and Nicol Thompson, the Sawmill course opened for play in 1976 and has been family-owned and operated ever since. The Julie’s, “are absolutely thrilled to be hosting the Ontario Peewee Championship,” expressed Carrie Julie. “We hosted the Ontario Bantam Championship three years ago and the energy that the players brought, coupled with the support from our members made us jump at the chance to host another Championship. We have a strong junior program and hosting kids’ Championships just fits with who we are at our core. We’ll offer the players an energetic, engaging, and fun atmosphere. Get ready for a warm Sawmill welcome and very enthusiastic volunteers.”

 

With high summer temperatures, “the last month has been hot and dry, making for firm and fast conditions,” explained Jeremy Julie, Sawmill’s Director of Golf. The hidden gem will require accurate and strategic shots, as the players 12 and undertake on the course in 36-holes of competition. A total of 27 girls’ and 47 boys’ will be competing for the 2021 Ontario Peewee (U13) Boys’ and Girls’ Championship.

 

Action from Sawmill will get underway at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, August 23rd. For championship information, tee times, and results, check out our Golf Genius webpage here. Players can prep by touring the course, through the drone footage and descriptive course tour.
