(Edmonton, AB) – The Syncrude Oil Country Championship presented by AECON and Oilers Entertainment Group (OEG) announced today that ATB Financial is the title sponsor of the Junior Golf Clinic during the upcoming Edmonton stop on the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada.
The ATB Financial Junior Golf Clinic will kick off the tournament week for the Syncrude Oil Country Championship presented by AECON on Sunday, July 30, 2017, with 80 children between six to 12 years of age being given the opportunity to learn from Mackenzie Tour professionals. No previous golf experience is necessary. Each session will be approximately 1hr, 15 min., and the cost to register is $20 per child. Every participant will receive a commemorative hat and dedicated time with a professional as the clinic boasts an exceptional ratio of one pro to every five children.
The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF) will have patients from the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital participating in this year’s clinic, as guests of the Oilers Foundation. As beneficiary of the entire Oil Country Championship week, the EOCF will also be donating net tournament funds to the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation in support of its Pediatric Procedure Room.
“We’re excited to kick off the 2nd annual Oil Country Championship tournament week with the ATB Financial Junior Golf Clinic. This will undoubtedly be an extremely memorable experience for these kids and their families. Imagine being able to tell people that you sharpened skills on the range with Graham DeLaet, Adam Hadwin or Mackenzie Hughes. With so many Mackenzie Tour players quickly graduating to the PGA TOUR, that’s the story we could be providing,” said ATB Financial Manager of Community Initiatives Kris Noble.
“This is an exceptional opportunity for families and their children to gain exposure to the game of golf, or continue a passion,” said Oilers Entertainment Group Senior Vice President of Facilities and Operations Stu Ballantyne. “For only $20, your child will receive one-on-one time with the next great players in professional golf as they chase their PGA TOUR dreams.”
The ATB Financial Junior Golf Clinic will be held at the Victoria Driving Range, (12130 River Valley Road, Edmonton, AB) on Sunday, July 30, 2017 with two sessions available for purchase (10:00 AM MT and 1:30 PM MT).
