100 Juniors enjoy drama at MJT Bow Valley Credit Union Classic in Banff

Banff, AB – (May 26, 2014) – Great drama was experienced during the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT Bow Valley Credit Union Classic at the iconic Banff Springs Golf Course in Banff, Alberta, on May 24th and 25th. Firstly, the spectacular scenery of this world-class, stunningly beautiful location created a dramatic backdrop for every shot played by the heavily wait-listed field of 100 young golfers, who travelled to the two-day tournament from far and wide in Western Canada. Secondly, there was the drama of a 30 minute delay during round one when a grizzly bear walked onto a fairway after a group of girls had teed off. They were playing their second shots while a park ranger was shooting above the bear and a ‘bear banger’ was utilized, “and they all hit perfect shots,” quipped MJT Tournament Director and PGA Professional, Trent Matson.

A herd of elk who reside on the course also added to the excitement but did not hold up the juniors who were competing for titles in four divisions plus the chance to be shortlisted for MJT Team Canada to the Srixon International Junior Classic in New South Wales, Australia this October.
