For Immediate Release:
FREDERICTON, NB – In accordance with the Golf NB COVID-19 Tournament Protocols and the current New Brunswick Provincial Mandatory Order, it is with deep regret that Golf NB announces the CANCELLATION of both the 2021 NB Under-13 & Under-15 Championship scheduled to be held on June 19th-20th at the Gage Golf & Curling Club and the 2021 East Coast Junior Championship scheduled for June 29th-30th at the Covered Bridge Golf & Country Club.
Given the current restrictions surrounding competitions as outlined in the Provincial Mandatory Order, Golf NB is complying with the order to protect our players, volunteers, and staff. We strongly support the efforts of the Province of New Brunswick and its Public Health authorities in making the safety and well-being of New Brunswickers of paramount importance.
Golf NB continues to explore the possibility of again holding the Under-13 & Under-15 Championship in conjunction with the Under-19 Championship, scheduled for July 17th-19th at the Hampton Golf Course.
Golf NB has and will continue to follow the directives from the Province of New Brunswick and continue to plan to conduct the remainder of our 2021 championship schedule while balancing the needs of our competitors and host venues to the best of our ability.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
