Five local golfers are in the 156-player field for the 2012 B.C. Junior Boys Championship, which runs this week (July 10-13) at Roberts Creek.

Matthew Irvine (Courtenay-Crown Isle), Logan Yanick (Courtenay-Crown Isle), Mark Valliere (Courtenay-Crown Isle), Terran Berger (Comox-Glacier Greens) and Nick Crookall (Courtenay-Crown Isle) are the Comox Valley golfers who will be challenging the par-72, 6,337-yard Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club.

Round one was played Tuesday and round two goes today. A cut to the low 70 and ties will occur following the second round, with the final two rounds running on Thursday and Friday.

Meanwhile, Emma Rigsby (Courtenay-Crown Isle) will be carrying the local colours into battle at the BC Golf Junior girls Championship from July 10-13 at Osoyoos Golf and Country Club.

The event features female golfers, ages 18 and younger, who are poised to navigate the mountainous and desert terrain of the ‘Park Meadows’ course (par 72, 5,873 yards) in the quest to join the ranks of those who have hoisted the S.C. Sweeny Trophy as champions, including Dawn Coe (1978 & 1979), A.J. Eathorne (1993-1995) and Sue Kim (2005 & 2008).

The championship is a 72-hole stroke play competition with a cut after 54-holes to the low 35-players and ties. Also incorporated into the competition is a 54-hole net competition with awards being given to first and second place following the end of round three.
