Junior players can get their first taste of playing golf in a professionally organized tournament during this year’s Ottawa Sun Scramble.

Boys and girls ages nine to 18 are invited to register for the Junior Open City Championship, which will be played in a partner scramble format.

Forty teams will go pin seeking in first round action on Aug. 21 at eQuinelle Golf Club, with the top eight tandems making the cut.

Those successful teams then head for Eagle Creek Golf Club on Aug. 24 as part of the citywide event’s Championship Sunday.

“The competitors must be between nine and 18 years old on the day of round one,” said Andy Rajhathy, vice-president of Executive Golf (ClubEG), the organization that conducts the Ottawa Sun Scramble. “Both partners must have scoring averages of less than 100, or Golf Canada handicap factors of 35.0 or less at the time of registration and on Aug. 1”

The entry fee of $70 plus HST per player includes lunch on the day of round one and range balls on both days.

The top teams receive terrific prizes after round two and the champions pick up exemptions and complementary 2015 entries into either the Flagstick Open, the GolfWorks A division or the Junior Open.

Rajhathy says several other bonuses are part of the package, too:

  • All players receive a free round of indoor golf, courtesy of Golf-O-Max on Baxter Road.
  • Teams missing the cut receive a free round of golf at a member course of ClubEG.
  • Juniors receive a free ClubEG weekday membership.

ClubEG will also present the Little Junior Open.

It’s for girls and boys who shoot more than 100 and are less than 12 years of age on the date of round one.

The event is a nine-hole tournament on Falcon Ridge's executive Raceview course during the Ottawa Sun Scramble’s Royal Oak Kick-Off Day on Aug. 8.
