Canadian Junior Boys Championship

History

There is no better proving ground for young male golfers in this country than the Canadian Junior Boys Championship. Conducted by Golf Canada since 1938, when the first championship was played at London Hunt and Country Club in London, Ont., the Junior has given Canadians a glimpse into the future glory that many of its champions have gone on to enjoy. Canadian Golf Hall of Famers Doug Silverberg, George Knudson, Gary Cowan and Doug Roxburgh have all won the Silver Cup as young men before moving on to fine amateur and professional careers.

In addition to the 18-and-under championship, the 16-and-under Juvenile Championship was added in 1970, with the winner receiving the Jack Bailey Trophy. Since its inception, only nine golfers have won both the Juvenile and Junior titles — Jim Rutledge, Jeff Makahon, Rob McMillan, Jesse Collinson, Dustin Risdon, Gord Scutt, Rafael Lee, Mitch Sutton and Charles-Éric Bélanger. The Junior and Juvenile championship rounds are played concurrently over 72 holes, with the Junior Inter-Provincial Team Championship held in conjunction with the first 36 holes. This team event, which pits teams from every province against each other in stroke play competition, has been played concurrently with the first two rounds of stroke play since 1959.

The Junior champion of the Canadian Junior Boys Championship earns an exemption into the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship.
