Walking Stick Golf Course to Host AJGA Event in June

Walking Stick Golf Course will play host to the AJGA's PING/Marsico Funds Colorado Junior Roundup this summer, the AJGA announced Tuesday. The Pueblo, Colo., course will host the 54-hole event -- which will attract some of the top junior golfers from around the nation -- from June 3-6.

"We are extremely pleased to have Walking Stick host our PING Championship," said Pat Abshire of the Phoenix-based manufacturer. "Being a Colorado native, I have played the course numerous times and it is one of the toughest courses I have ever played. The juniors will truly be challenged by the golf course."

Walking Stick Golf Course was designed by Arthur Hills in 1991 and is no stranger to hosting premier events. The course annually hosts U.S. Open local qualifying, was the host of the 1995 Big "I" Championship, and will be the site of the 2006 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship.
