McKay tees off at Junior Golf world qualifier

Rossland native Braden McKay will tee it up this weekend with close to 100 junior golfers at Pagoda Ridge Golf Course in Langley

Rossland native Braden McKay will tee it up this weekend with close to 100 junior golfers at Pagoda Ridge Golf Course in Langley for the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s world qualifier.

The two-day event offers a major qualifying opportunity, shortlisting four players for the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship in San Diego, Calif. in July.

McKay was part of the Rossland Secondary School golf team that claimed bronze at the Single-A High School championship last year, and was the U14 West Kootenay Zone 1 champion in 2012.

The 16-year-old J.L. Crowe student will golf in the juvenile boys division for golfers age 15-17, and tees off at 12:21 p.m. on Saturday with the second and final round on Sunday.

The two-year-old, 6,427- yard Pagoda Ridge Golf Course offers a distinctive golf experience, carved through a landscape of gently rolling hills and natural vegetation, with stunning views of the Fraser Valley and majestic Golden Ears Mountains. The course has an absolutely stunning layout with a Chinese theme running throughout.
