The fifth annual World Junior Girls Championship will be hosted in Ottawa at Camelot Golf and Country Club commencing today until September 14th. There will be 57 athletes and 18 countries represented in this year’s tournament, which will include two Canadian teams.

Canada One and Canada Two will include athletes, Céleste Dao (Notre-Dame Ile Perrot, Que.), Ellie Szeryk (London, Ont.), Tiffany Kong (Vancouver, B.C.), Emily Zhu (Richmond Hill, Ont.), Sarah Beqaj (Toronto, Ont.) and Lauren Kim (Surrey, B.C.). Team Canada will be competing to earn their first medal since obtaining bronze during the very first World Junior Girls Championship in 2014.

Last year’s competition, also hosted in Ottawa, saw Spain take home the Championship. This year they look to defend their title against other favoured teams like Italy, Sweden and USA.

This year’s competition will also have a golf coach’s summit and a junior girl’s golf clinic to get people interested and active in the celebrations of the World Junior Girls Championship. Admission is free for those who are looking to attend the Championship and take part in any of the clinics.
