Results from OVGA / Optimist Junior Spring Classic

It was a great two days of golf this past weekend for the OVGA Junior Spring Classic at The Meadows Golf and Country Club sponsored by the Optimist Club of Nepean.
This tournament brought together 120 participants between the ages of 6 and 18 in an amazing showcase of junior talent to compete in our first combined OVGA/CJGA event of the season. The course was in great shape considering the recent accumulation of rain, which also allowed all players to become experienced in taking temporary water relief.

One of the many highlights of the day was a hole-in-one by Royal Ottawa’s Chase Jerome on #7 East (175 yards), which was also being used as our closest-to-the-pin hole. At 13 years of age, Chase was playing up a division, and shot a combined score of even par 144 over the two days to take both the Juvenile Boys and Overall Boys titles.

Other winners included:

* Yaorui Xu (Ottawa Hunt ) - Junior Boys
* Landon Van Loon (Players Club) - Bantam Boys
* Jack Sample (Rivermead) – Peewee Boys
* Mackenzie Cloutier (Le Blainvillier) - Junior/Overall Girls
* Shinyao Zhang (Rivermead) - Juvenile Girls after a one hole playoff
* Amelia McFarlane (Riverbend) – Bantam Girls
* Florence Ho (Ottawa Hunt) – Peewee Girls

Thanks to The Meadows G&CC, The Optimist Club of Nepean, Golf Ontario, CJGA and our team of OVGA officials for a great start to the season!
