CN Future Links comes to Kamloops this weekend

Kamloops, B.C.– Kamloops is excited to welcome the CN Future Links Community Tour! This free event will take place at Riverside Park in conjunction with National Health and Fitness Day on Saturday, June 6.

CN Future Links is Canada’s national junior golf program conducted by Golf Canada, the PGA of Canada and Canada’s provincial golf associations. The program is designed to forge a link between Canada’s youth and golf to ensure the future of the game in Canada.

The Future Links Tour will feature interactive activities including driving, chipping and putting, all with the assistance of a PGA of Canada Professional. The CN Safety Zone will allow participants to meet CN Police officers and learn about rail safety. At each of these activities children can get stamps on their passports, which can be entered to win a CNFL prize pack.
