On Saturday afternoon, PGA Tour Canada announced the cancellation of the 2022 Elk Ridge Open. The tournament in Waskesiu Lake, Sask., will not be rescheduled.
“During the last 10 days, the golf course has received over 10 inches of rain. We evaluated the golf course this morning, and it was completely flooded,” said tournament director Matt Delaney after his team examined all 18 holes and found bunkers full of water and standing water on fairways and greens.
“It’s totally unplayable golf conditions. You can’t play under the rules of golf in conditions like this,” said Delaney.
“Quite simply,” Delaney continued, “if we tried to play, and players had unplayable lies because of the accumulation of water, there would literally be no place for them to drop their golf balls on the golf course. It will take at least one week for this golf course to dry out just for normal play here.”
