Multi Sport Games

Winnipeg, Manitoba
July 28 - August 13, 2017

Winnipeg will be hosting the largest multi - sport and cultural event in the nation from July 28th until August 13th, 2017. The Canada Summer Games will welcome over 4,000 athletes and coaches and over 20,000 visitors to Winnipeg, Gimli and Kenora.

With 2017 being the 50th anniversary of the Games and the 150th anniversary of Canada, it will be a very exciting time for young Manitoba athletes as well as Manitobans in general. The 2017 Canada Summer Games will have a prominent place in our country’s celebration.

Golf will be participating in the Canada Games for the third time. The Games are open to both male and female athletes who are under the age of 19 as of August 1, 2017.

Southwood Golf & Country Club will be the venue for Golf. Southwood has hosted some high profile National Championships including the 2014 Canadian University Championship and the 2014 Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship. Southwood will be an excellent test for Canada’s top junior golfers.

The inaugural participation of golf in the Canada Games was in 2009 in Charlottetown, PEI. The Manitoba Girls Team finished in 6th place while the Boys finished in 4th. The Girls Team members were Bri - ann Tokariwski (Elmhurst), Jenna Roadley (Glendale) and Lindsay Stewart (Selkirk).

The Boys team of Travis Fredborg (Selkirk), Zach Sackett (Elmhurst ) and Steve Young (St. Charles) finished in 6th place.

A Training Squad of 12 girls and 13 boys have been preparing for the opportunity to represent Manitoba in 2017.
