ClubLink signs on as major Partner with Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour
King City, ON– (February 14, 2020) – Canada’s number one-played Junior Golf Tour, the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour (MJT), is pleased to announce a partnership with ClubLink, the largest owner and operator of golf courses in Canada.
ClubLink, home to more than 50 championship golf courses located at 41 different locations across Ontario, Quebec and Florida, offers its members access to every course in the ClubLink family. The new agreement with the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour introduces the MJT ClubLink Series on the 2020 Ontario circuit, with special pricing for ClubLink Junior Members and opportunities for MJT families to become ClubLink Members.
The MJT’s nationwide schedule of close to 90 events in 2020 includes 18 stops in Ontario between the Junior Tour (ages 11 to 19) and Mini Tour (ages 7 to 12). The MJT ClubLink Series will comprise five of the Junior Tour’s stops, where participating juniors with a ClubLink membership receive preferred MJT entry fee pricing.
“We are pleased to support the development of young talent through our partnership and grow the base of golfing families” says Brent Miller, Vice President, Corporate Operations and Member Services. “Golf is not only a competitive sport. It is a game for life. Families that adopt golf into their lifestyle reap the benefits of time spent together with a likeminded community that leads to lifelong friendships. We look forward to hosting MJT competitors and their families at our Clubs this season.”
“This generous support of junior golf by ClubLink is fantastic,” said Elaine Denton, MJT Director of Marketing and Administration. “Their participation helps reduce costs for young players who are developing as champions, in golf and in life.”
The first of the series is the MJT Humber College PGM presented by TaylorMade at Hidden Lake Golf Club in Burlington on May 9 to 10. Following the Hidden Lake tournament, four more events take place at Caledon Woods Golf Club in Bolton on May 30 to 31, at Glendale Golf and Country Club in Hamilton on June 13 to 14, at Georgetown Golf Club in Georgetown from June 28 to 29, and at Station Creek Golf Club in Gormley from August 30 to 31.
Registration has opened for all of these events, and juniors are encouraged to take advantage of the savings by providing their ClubLink membership number when registering on the MJT website.
