WORLD YOUTH TEAM CHALLENGE

Illinois, USA

Features

The World Youth Team Challenge features one of the largest contingent of young players from Canada in an international event, competing in a Ryder Cup team format. There will be teams from USA, Mexico, Canada, South Africa, California, Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana.

This is a great opportunity for players aged 9-14/15 to test their skills against their counterparts in a team atmosphere and learn the strategies that come with match play. It also provides an opportunity to meet new people and make new friendships from around the world.

The teams will consist of junior golfers, boys and girls, from the age of 9 to 14/15 years old. Team members have to qualify through sanctioned tournaments to be invited to play in this event, which will be held at the beautiful Bolingbrook Golf Club in Bolingbrook Illinois, on June 6-10, 2008.
