The first of four Canada Life Series events begins Monday at Bear Mountain near Victoria.
The event, which takes place on the Mountain Course, will continue until Wednesday with the second event scheduled for the Valley Course Aug. 17-19.
The Series will observe a one-week break, allowing players to travel to the other side of the country for the final two events at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley.
The Canada Life Series at TPC Toronto’s links-style Heathlands course is set for Sept. 2-4. The following week, Sept. 9-11, the players will once again tackle the Heathlands.
Fields will consist of Canadian professionals and elite amateurs, as well as Mackenzie Tour members, regardless of citizenship, who are already in Canada.
Exempt players for the Canada Life Series will include any Canadian professional who has held status on any of the PGA Tour’s international circuits since 2018 (Mackenzie Tour, PGA Tour Latinoamérica and PGA Tour Series-China).
In addition, six sponsor exemptions will be used by Golf Canada for its national team members. Canada Life will receive two sponsor exemptions, while both host facilities will have two sponsor exemptions each.
The player who earns the most points during the four tournaments will be granted conditional Mackenzie Tour status and guaranteed six tournament starts on the 2021 Mackenzie Tour.
In addition to those playing opportunities, Golf Canada will also award the top player a spot in the 2021 RBC Canadian Open.
The players finishing in the second through fifth positions on the final points standings earn conditional 2021 Mackenzie Tour status, along with two guaranteed Mackenzie Tour tournament starts.
The players finishing between Nos. 6-10 earn a discounted rate into one of the 2021 Mackenzie Tour qualifying tournaments.
