Mother Nature tried her best over the weekend to dampen the enthusiasm of local junior golfers playing in the Ottawa Valley Golf Association (OVGA) Junior and Juvenile City & District Championships but these youngsters are tough. Playing through cold temperatures and strong wind gusts at Hylands and Kanata Golf Clubs, scores were a little higher than normal but in the end four champions were declared.
