The Club at North Halton Hosts 2013 PGA Women’s Championship of Canada

The 2013 PGA Women’s Championship of Canada heads to the picturesque Club at North Halton this July.

Located in Georgetown, Ont., the Club at North Halton hosts its first PGA of Canada national championship, July 2-4. Marc Bezaire, the Club’s head PGA golf professional, says players will be treated to an old school, shot makers golf course.

“The Club at North Halton is a true shot makers golf course,” Bezaire says. “Players will enjoy being able to work their shots and the chance to use every club in their bag.”

Originally founded as a club in 1954, North Halton’s history dates back to 1915 when the legendary PGA of Canada professional George Cumming was hired to design the nine-hole course known as Cedar Crest. Bob and Dave Moote completed an expansion to its current 18-hole routing in the 1960’s.

“As President of the PGA of Canada, I’m excited and proud a golf course with deeply-rooted ties to the Association will host a national championship in 2013,” says PGA of Canada President, Gregg Schubert.

Bezaire says he and his staff of PGA of Canada professionals are proud and excited to play host for the national championship.

“My team and I are excited to participate in such a prestigious championship, which supports the growth of women’s golf in Canada,” he says. “As PGA professionals, we consider it a tremendous honour to host a PGA of Canada national championship.”

The PGA Women’s Championship of Canada was first played in 1987 and past champions include Cathy Sherk, Gail Graham, Nancy Harvey, Lorie Kane and Jessica Shepley.

LPGA Tour player Alena Sharp of Hamilton, Ont., has won the championship the past two and looks to become the first three-peat winner since Kane won the championship four years in a row from 1996-1999.

The PGA Women’s Championship of Canada takes place July 2-4 at the Club at North Halton in Georgetown, Ont.

The Simmlands Insurance Services Pro-Am kicks off championship week on July 2nd and this marks the sixth year Simmlands Insurance Services has hosted their Pro-Am prior to the PGA Women’s Championship of Canada with proceeds of the event going to Women in Insurance Cancer Crusade.
