Lookout Point Country Club to Host Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada National Final
Situated on the highest point in the Niagara region overlooking Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, the Niagara River and the city of Niagara Falls, Lookout Point Country Club is an impressive venue unto itself.
The 1922 Walter Travis designed gem is home to World Golf Hall of Fame member Marlene Streit; two-time PGA Women's Championship of Canada winner, Cathy Sherk; five-time PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada winner Bill Kozak; and PGA TOUR Champions winner Rod Spittle.
And later this year, Lookout Point Country Club will also become home for the inaugural Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada national final.
Taking place Sept. 29-Oct. 1, the national final features 25 teams—comprised of four amateurs and a PGA of Canada professional—playing in a 36-hole Ambrose Scramble format.
“We’re very excited and proud to be taking the inaugural Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada national final to such a wonderful venue in Lookout Point Country Club,” said PGA of Canada president Constant Priondolo.
The Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada is a new national series of events taking place at close to 100 golf facilities around the country beginning this June.
The series of events expects to draw thousands amateur golfers—who will form their own team of four players— from across the country. Teams will look to make it through local and regional qualifying with the ultimate goal of playing in the national final this fall at Lookout Point Country Club with a PGA of Canada professional playing on their team.
Each golfer who plays in a Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada local event will receive impressive gifting and prizing from supporting partners.
“Lookout Point Country Club members and staff are excited about hosting the inaugural Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada national final,” said Lookout Point Country Club’s general manger Dan Greenwood. “Our golf course will be a great test for all of the competitors—especially in a scramble format—and it will be fun to see how low the teams can go,” he said, adding, “the Niagara Escarpment definitely play tricks on the greens and the team that gets them figured out early will be tough to beat.”
In addition to the 36-hole championship, Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada national final promises to be a golf trip of a lifetime, which includes a festival of special events, prizing, activations and a chance to interact with the latest Hyundai vehicles.
