The Future Links Driven by Acura Prairie Championships will hit the local course June 13 through 16.

“It’s a little bit for us,” said one of the event organizers Don Kunkel, who noted the tournament is specifically for youth 12-to-18.

“It’s part of the Future Links program through Golf Canada,” he added, the Yorkton event one of several being held across the country.

“It culminates with a Canadian Championship in the fall.”

With the Yorkton event being a qualifier for a national final, Kunkel said they have had entries from farther afield than they had anticipated.

“We’re quite surprised by the entries,” he said.

“We expected Manitoba and Alberta, and of course Saskatchewan ... but there are entries from B.C, and Ontario. ... To get entries from BC and Ontario is really good.”

While a few late entries might trickle in, Kunkel said it looks like 61 golfers will take part 17 girls and 44 boys.

The event will start with practice rounds June 13, and then get down to serious play with rounds Friday, Saturday and Sunday which count toward final placings.

If anyone is interested in helping with the event they can call Kunkel at 786-1713.

“We can always use more volunteers. I’ll never turn one down,” he said with a smile.
