Milford, Conn. (May 20, 2020) – It is with deep regret that we inform you that the 2020 Northern Junior Championship, scheduled to be played July 27-29 at Great River Golf Club in Milford, Connecticut, and all qualifiers have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All players who entered the championship or qualifiers will be issued a full refund within 5-7 business days.
Each year, we look forward to welcoming families to Connecticut and providing an experience unlike any other in junior golf. However, the health and safety of our players, families, volunteers and golf course staff was the primary focus for the decision. Current state guidelines in Connecticut prohibit gathering of 50 or more individuals, hotels remain closed to non-essential travel, and restaurants remain limited to restricted capacity.
We realize this decision will leave many junior golfers disappointed, and we hope that you understand that this decision was made out of the care and concern for the welfare of our players, their families and everyone involved in conducting the championship. It is truly heartbreaking to all of us that we will not be able to conduct this year’s Northern Junior.
The 2021 Northern Junior Championship will be contested on August 2nd – 4th at New Haven Country Club in Hamden, Connecticut.
