Mickelson National Golf Club to Host 102nd Playing of PGA Championship of Canada

(ACTON, ON)– The PGA of Canada is thrilled to announce that Mickelson National Golf Club will be the proud host of the 102nd PGA Championship of Canada near Calgary, Alta, June 9-12, 2024.
The event will once again be a 54-hole stroke play competition, with a practice round preceding the tournament on Sunday, June 9.
“The PGA Championship of Canada has historically brought the best-of-the-best together at some of the nation’s top championship courses, and, with today’s announcement, it is no question 2024 will continue that trend,” said PGA of Canada CEO Kevin Thistle. “Barry Ehlert, Miles Mortensen and the entire Mickelson National Golf Club staff have welcomed us with open arms; we cannot wait to kick off our championship season in Calgary.” 
The field for this prestigious event will be prioritized based on the PGA Player Rankings presented by ECCO Golf. While the full field size will be announced at a later date, PGA of Canada officials anticipate the largest field in several years.

Mickelson National Golf Club, designed by six-time major champion Phil Mickelson, offers a world-class golfing experience with its stunning 18-hole championship course. The Club's commitment to excellence and the sport's traditions make it an ideal venue for hosting such a significant event on the Canadian golf calendar.

With snow-capped peaks in the distance, Mickelson National is framed by rolling foothills and a raw, natural aesthetic that was designed to push the frontier of golf as we know it. The architecture is focused on creative shot-making and boasts a true championship-calibre test for the top PGA of Canada professionals.

"We are honoured and excited to host the PGA Championship of Canada at Mickelson National Golf Club," said Miles Mortensen, Mickelson National Golf Club Director of Golf." This event represents a convergence of excellence in golf and a celebration of the association’s rich heritage. We look forward to welcoming the nation's top golfers and providing an exceptional experience for the players.”

The PGA Championship of Canada was first played in 1912, making it one of the oldest professional golf championships in the entire world. A storied list of past champions include: Moe Norman, Al Balding, George Knudson, Dan Halldorson, Dave Barr, Bob Panasik., Stan Leonard, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Lanny Wadkins, Ray Floyd and Steve Stricker.
