Golf Ontario is excited to announce the creation of a Provincial Super Camp which will take place at Black Bear Ridge Golf Course, October 9-12th. The camp will feature the top 30 junior boys and top 30 junior girls in the province for two days of testing (Golf Canada’s, National Testing Protocol), a mental session, and two rounds of competition.
With the reduced opportunities for head to head results this season, this Super Camp is another opportunity for the best junior golfers in the province to compete against their peers, while adhering to current Golf Ontario COVID safety protocols. Additionally, this 4-day camp will give athletes a chance to train with other like-minded athletes and coaches, gain useful NTP data for themselves and other top athletes, and receive an introduction to the mental side of the game. The event is intended to be a fun and competitive culmination of the season, and this year it will also be used as a portion of the 2021 Team Ontario selection criteria.
Moving forward, the Provincial Super Camp will be an integral part of the soon to be launched New Junior Competitive Pathway, and Golf Ontario is thankful for the collaboration from industry partners and PGA professionals on the structure of this Super Camp.
