Arbutus Ridge Golf Club Awarded Host of 2005 National Junior Ladies Championship

15th March, 2005
Cobble Hill, British Columbia – Arbutus Ridge Golf Club is the proud host of the 2005 CLGA National Junior Championship.

96 of the Canada’s best Junior Ladies Golfers will compete August 1st through 4th, 2005. The winner is awarded the prestigious Brokenshire Trophy. Past Champions include LPGA Superstars AJ Eathorne & Sandra Post.

Arbutus Ridge is located 45 minutes north of Victoria. This golf course is the first Vancouver Island course to host a National Ladies Championship since 1983 when Dawn Coe-Jones won the National Crown at the Victoria Golf Club. Locals will get a preview of some championship players during the Provincial Junior Championship, also hosted by Arbutus Ridge.

Arbutus Ridge Golf Club is owned and operated by the GolfBC Group. “GolfBC continues to commit to showcasing its golf courses on a National stage” says former General Manager Sarah Cruse. Other events hosted by GolfBC Golf Courses include 1) National Men’s Amateur Championship at Gallagher’s Canyon
(Kelowna) 2) CPGA Club Professional Championship at the Okanagan Golf Club (Kelowna) 3) Telus Skins Game at Nicklaus North (Whistler) 3) Wendy’s Skins Game at Wailea Resort (Hawaii) and 4) Canadian Tour Events at Mayfair Lakes (Vancouver).

“It’s an honour to host a National Championship. This event will help promote Vancouver Island as a golfing destination and Arbutus Ridge is proud to help the region grow” says Scott Kolb, fomer Director of Golf at Arbutus Ridge. Kolb believes the hospitality of the volunteer committee of the two previous Provincial Junior Championships is one reason Arbutus Ridge was awarded the event. “The committee is led by a member of Arbutus Ridge, Diane Cook. They did such an incredible job in 2002, as a result they asked us to run the event again in 2003”, states Kolb. It is rare that the Provincial Association asks a Club to host a Provincial event in consecutive years.
