The McLennan Ross Sun Junior Tour

Latest News from the Tour

Tour Gets Into Full Swing!

Jun 25, 2013

With juniors starting to wind up their school years this week, the Tour gets ready to move into the heart of our 2013 schedule. Next week , we have two events; in Innisfail on Tuesday, July 2 and in Barrhead on Thursday, July 4th. The Innisfail event will be cross over tee times beginning at 1 p.m. on the Hazlewood and Aspen 9s, with an entry deadline of Sunday evening, June 30th. July 1, Canada Day, will be very busy at the course, so we need to make sure all the junior are entered by Sunday night at the LATEST in order for the club to properly plan for the tournament. Both Innisfail and Barrhead are terrific courses and great venues for any juniors that aren't competing in the Alberta Golf Junior Boys and Junior Girls championships going on next week in Edson and Ponoka. If you're planning to compete, please enter EARLY!

Henderson Lake Results and Calgary Flood Thoughts

Jun 24, 2013

It's 12:15 a.m. I just drove 5 1/2 hours from Lethbridge and I'm home and I am at a loss for words. Not about the tournament today. Full marks to Matthew Ritchot and Gina Kowalchuk on their wins at Henderson Lake today. More on them later. I'm at a loss for words to describe what I saw driving back north to Edmonton through southern Alberta and Calgary. Television reports over the last few days showing the devastation throughout much of southern Alberta only hinted at the scale of the damage until I got a first hand look at what has transpired over the last few days. My first hint of the scope and force of the water was leaving Lethbridge and seeing the height of the Oldman River, but really didn't hit home until I got to High River on Highway 2. Unbelievable. The town and much of the farmland north of town is a lake. I can only guess at the destruction in the town and surrounding community. Calgary was simply surreal. I'm in the city a lot during the year, and seeing the Bow River raging through the city was numbing. Inglewood Golf Course was just gone. Rounding the curve in the Deerfoot just north of Inglewood and seeing the water pounding over the weir only hinted at the level of damage upstream in the city. These are our neighbours and our friends and our families. It doesn't matter if they are golfers or seniors or whatever. They're our fellow Albertans and our fellow Canadians. Five hours in the car and my mind is percolating with thoughts about what we can do. We HAVE to help. We WILL help. I am now going to put up the results from the tournament today on the website and then try to get some sleep. I'm not going to go all David Ortiz on everyone like he did after the Boston Marathon bombing in Boston, but stay strong, Alberta!

Ritchot leads after 18 holes at Henderson Lake

Jun 22, 2013

After over 85 mm of rain had deluged the Henderson Lake GC over recent days, the course was still soggy but drying out rapidly for the first round today of the Henderson Lake Junior Open. Several withdrawals from Calgary and area competitors had hurt the field, but who can blame those youngsters or their parents given the seriousness of the flooding situation in Calgary and throughout southern Alberta? Of the juniors that did enter the tournament, Matthew Ritchot of the Lethbridge Country Club led the way, firing a 2-over par 73, good for a 3-shot lead over his clubmate Drew Harvie. Scott Shugg of Bearpaw GCC in Calgary is another 2 shots back on 78. Gina Kowalchuk of the host club was best among the junior girls on hand with a fine 78 of her own. Full results will not be on the website until first thing Monday morning after I get back to Edmonton. In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all the Calgary and southern Alberta residents affected by the flooding.

The Show Must Go On!

Jun 21, 2013

Finally got to Lethbridge tonight, after a long detour east of Calgary thru Brooks and then south to Taber, and back west to Lethbridge. Very little rain here and the Henderson Lake course looks in great shape. We did get some cancellations from Calgary players, very understandably given the situation there, but the tournament IS a go for tomorrow. First tee time is 1 p.m. See you there!,,,Dunc

Henderson Lake Update!

Jun 21, 2013

Thursday, June 20, 8:00 pm - Despite the serious flooding in Calgary and much of southern Alberta, as of this moment, the Henderson Lake Junior Open is still a "GO" for Saturday and Sunday this weekend. I have been trying to get through to the pro shop at Henderson Lake all evening to check on their situation, but the 403 Area Code must be crashing, as the phone line has rung busy in the Henderson Lake pro shop all evening. Stay tuned to the website and our Twitter feed for further news over the next several hours and into early Friday. Friday, June 21, 8:00 am. - I just spoke with Paul Lowe, Head Pro at Henderson Lake, and he confirmed to me that the tournament is still ON for Saturday and Sunday. They are not expecting any more significant rain at Henderson Lake and unless something changes, we will see everyone at Henderson Lake on Saturday. If anything changes, I will get something up on the website ASAP.
