Congratulations to Canyon Gate Country Club in Las Vegas, Nevada, and their PGA Junior Team, which won the first season of the PGA Junior League in Southern Nevada. The Junior Team, consisting of twelve juniors ranging in ages 9-13, competed against teams from prestigious clubs in the area, including TPC Summerlin, TPC Las Vegas, Anthem Country Club and Boulder Creek Golf Club. The team was coached by Member Mike Salerno with help from Canyon Gate First Golf Assistant Toby Meacham.
With the win of the League, Canyon Gate will get the honor of having four of the ten junior players on the Las Vegas all-star team, which will compete against the Phoenix all-star team in early August and will be coached by Canyon Gate Head Golf Professional David Smith. A win in August will take the club to the Southwest Section and, more wins, eventually to the regional in September in San Francisco.
Congrats again to Canyon Gate and good luck!
