Canadian Junior Girls Championship

History

With over 60 years of history, the Canadian Junior Girls Championship continues to produce top calibre players who contend years later for amateur and professional titles. Top Canadian golfers like Sandra Post, Marilyn Palmer (O’Connor) Gayle Hitchins (Borthwick) Alena Sharp, Maude-Aimée LeBlanc, Rebecca Lee-Bentham, and Brooke Henderson all saw early success at this coveted championship.

Heather Kuzmich remains the top name in the Canadian Junior Girls Championship record books by boasting four consecutive championship wins from 1981 to 1984. Kuzmich, Lisa Meldrum and the legendary Mabel Thompson are the only three women to ever accomplish a ‘four-peat’ in Canadian Women’s amateur golf history. (Mabel Thompson earned four amateur titles while Meldrum won a single junior and three amateur titles).

The Canadian Junior Girls Championship has been conducted since 1955 and has also been referred to as the CLGA National Junior Championship.
