One round to go in junior tour 0
The inaugural Pembina Valley Junior Golf Tour concludes this week with the final round at Minnewasta.
The sixth round was taking place in Morden after the fifth round last week at Riverview Golf Course in Morris.

Each week, there has been one event at one of the six participating courses in communities served by Access Credit Union. Each event has had prizes for that day, and points also accumulate over the tournament schedule to crown overall champions in each age division after this week's final round at Minnewasta.
