UPDATE: Official MJT Statement regarding the global concerns around COVID-19 (“coronavirus”)
March 16 statement: UPDATE
Dear MJT Participants and Families,
In light of the rapidly changing circumstances, requirements by the Provincial Government, and unprecedented action by governments around the world, the MJT has canceled the March 21-22 event at Redwoods Golf Club in Langley, BC, and is suspending upcoming tournaments, to be rescheduled for play at a later date as circumstances allow.
Entry fees for any canceled event will be credited to your account.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and provide regular updates as they become available, in the best interests of the health and safety of our members and their families.
We understand these are trying times for everyone and we hope to get our youth back playing in the sunshine and fresh air again soon.

March 13 statement is below:
Dear MJT players and families,
With regard to the outbreak of coronavirus, called COVID-19, the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour is monitoring the situation as it develops.
We have implemented a No Spectators Policy for the interim, are requesting players to avoid shaking hands and/or hugging at the tournaments, and continue to monitor the news to see if any additional measures will be mandated.
Upcoming tournaments are expected to run as planned, provided the golf course is open and allowed to operate, and no additional measures are mandated by the relevant government agencies.
If players wish to withdraw, we ask you to please let us know at least one week in advance in order to receive a refund. If a player is sick and needs to withdraw within the week leading up to the event, please provide a doctor’s note in order to receive a refund.
For more information about coronavirus, including precautions and advisories, please consult: Public Health Agency of Canada. Consult provincial, regional or local health agencies for specific information about your location.
Thank you for your understanding during this time.
