As the 2018 PGA of Canada tournament schedule becomes complete, we’ve had tremendous support from zones across the country and that is not only helping us now, but will continue to do so going forward.
The PGA Championship of Canada will be played at Credit Valley Golf and Country Club, a fantastic golf course in Mississauga, Ont., with the DCM PGA Women’s Championship scheduled for the Ladies Golf Club of Toronto, which has always shown great support over the years.
The PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada will go at the Beverly Golf and Country Club in Copetown, Ont., with the RBC PGA Scramble national final to be played at Cabot Links once again.
We’re also getting ready to announce the 2018 site for the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada and there is a possibility that it will be played in Arizona. You never know, but we’ll have an announcement very soon.
It’s great to be able to call the individual zones and discuss such matters and we’re also working with the zones on their championships. It’s amazing how working together can help in building both the zone and national championships. The more we talk, the more we find out how we can help one another and I think the future is bright because of it.
I think we’re in for a great series of zone tournaments across the country and maybe the best ever with the national schedule. We’ve had zones reach out and say they’d love to host national events and we’d love to move them around the country.
We’ve got a big country and maybe somebody who doesn’t get the opportunity to play in a lot of national championships might be able to play in one closer to home, offering more local flavour and a different mix of players, but opening it more to to players who might not always get that chance.
Collaboration works both ways, whether it’s education, member services, or national and zone championships.
