When its creation was first announced in 2014, the World Junior Girl Golf Championship was initially confirmed for a three-year run. This year’s edition at The Marshes Golf Club in Ottawa extends that to four years.

Flagstick.com has learned that there will indeed be a 5th edition of the championship, and, like it has since the beginning, will take place at an Ontario-based golf club. Angus Glen GC (Markham) hosted the initial championship in 2014, Mississaugua G&CC was the site in 2016, while The Marshes has welcomed the event in 2015 and this year.

Multiple sources have confirmed the name of the course that will host the championship, but at the request of management we have chosen to keep that information private until the members of the club have been fully informed.

“It has been approved by the board of directors; we just need to be able to share that with the membership first,” one source conveyed.

The expected announcement of the host site could come shortly as the 2017 edition of the championship wraps up Friday with the 4th and final round.

We can share that it is a golf club that has hosted multiple national championships and various professional events.

We will pass on the name of the club and any other details at the earliest time possible.
