This past weekend on May 24th and 25th, the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s MJT Bow Valley Credit Union Classic was held at the Banff Springs Golf Course. Being the title sponsor for this fantastic event is something that Bow Valley Credit Union is very proud of. Dan, the Banff Branch Manager, and Kim, the Banff Member Service Manager, were on hand to take in the competition and help give out prizes at the end of the tournament.
The beautiful scenery of the course was part of the experience for the 100 young golfers from Western Canada who attended tournament to compete for titles in four divisions plus the chance to be shortlisted for MJT Team Canada to the Srixon International Junior Classic in New South Wales, Australia this October.
To add to the weekend’s excitement, there was a 30 minute delay during round one when a grizzly bear walked onto a fairway after a group of girls had teed off, and just in case that wasn’t enough wildlife, a herd of elk who reside on the course also made an appearance, although they didn’t hold up the competition.
