received for the Toldo Group Eastern Canadian Junior will
automatically be transferred to the AJGA Boyne Highlands Junior.

the season but is was a logistical circumstance that was beyond
our control that led to this decision,” said AJGA Vice

“Boyne Highlands is a great venue. The resort and golf
course staff has always been great to us and we really look
forward to going back there.”
