National award for junior program

As part of the celebration to receive the 2018 Future Links Facility of the Year award, youngsters from the London Junior Golf Development Centre participated in Golf Canada’s Junior Skills Challenge

On Sunday May 26, 2019, Golf Canada hosted a unique celebration in the London area at FireRock Golf Club.  There, Golf Canada presented the London Junior Golf Development Centre with one of its most prestigious awards, the 2018 Future Links Facility of the Year.

Led by PGA Professional Brian Gallant and PGA Community Coaches, FireRock Golf Club provided the perfect venue for the celebration. Over 40 juniors participated in Golf Canada’s Junior Skills Challenge, which had the juniors participate in three skills – driving, chipping and putting – and receiving points for the result of the shot. Following the skills challenge, the juniors were joined by family members for a BBQ and awards presentation.

“This is one of the most important days of my golf career,” said PGA Professional Brian Gallant. “This celebration was only possible thanks to the various coaches that have supported our program over the year – and most importantly, the juniors and families that make this possible. My family has been instrumental in my success, as I was often coaching in the evenings and weekends. Without my family, this award would not have happened.”

The London Junior Golf Development Centre is only the sixth Canadian golf program to receive the Future Links Facility of the year Award since the inaugural award in 2013.
