The West Kootenay Junior Golf Circuit is now finished and players are awaiting the top 20 invitational, to take place next weekend.

Jordan Hoodikoff of Christina Lake took first place at the circuit’s stop in Castlegar at the end of May. It was Hoodikoff’s first win on the junior circuit, co-ordinator Rob McKay said, finishing with three over par.

“All the players were very happy for Jordan as he has played the circuit for years and he always displays good sportsmanship to his fellow competitors,” McKay said.

On June 4, the circuit stopped at Champion Lakes.

“It was exciting until the finish, but Nolan Taylor from Granite Pointe edged Tanner Kopan from Christina Lake in a playoff,” McKay said.

“Both kids posted identical rounds of 75 in regulation, but long-hitting Nolan Taylor took advantage of the par five playoff hole.”

The next day, 33 golfers played in Creston with a cut after the first 18 holes. The top 15 advanced to play the final nine holes.

“When it all settled out Kevin Bennett from Redstone finished at a six over par, beating Tyler McKay from RTCC by two shots and Tanner Kopan from Christina Lake by three,” McKay said.

Two Castlegar golfers finished in the top 20 at all three circuit stops.

Amber Arnold finished ninth in Castlegar, 14th at Champion Lakes and 18th in Creston.

Eric Bojey finished 16th in Castlegar, ninth at Champion Lakes and 20th in Creston.

Jeffrey Ashton finished 18th in Castlegar, and 27th in Creston.
