The season will open with the 101st playing of the BetRegal PGA Championship at Bigwin Island Golf Club in Baysville, Ontario from June 11-14. The flagship event will feature 75 of the top professionals in the country competing over the course of 54-holes, looking to join the likes of Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino on the P.D. Ross Trophy. From there, we will move to Canada’s southern-most city, Kingsville, Ontario, where Kingsville Golf & Country Club will host the top professional and amateur women in the country from July 3-5 for the 36-hole ORORO PGA Women’s Championship of Canada. One month later, Ledgeview Golf Club in Abbotsford, British Columbia will host the top senior players in the country at the PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada presented by GOLFTEC. All eyes will be on reigning champion Jim Rutledge, who can tie Moe Norman’s record of eight senior championship titles. The fourth national champion will be crowned September 18-21 just outside Edmonton, Alberta, as The Ranch Golf & Country Club will host the top assistants in the country at the PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented by Callaway Golf. Women are eligible to compete in all National Championships and will play at a course length slightly shorter than the men’s yardage. “We are heading into this year's national championships with so much momentum after a terrific tournament season last year, which included the historic 100th BetRegal PGA Championship of Canada,” said PGA of Canada president Gord Percy. “Some incredible venues have stepped up to host our professionals this year which will surely lead to the crowning of worthy champions.” “We are thrilled to welcome back all our tournaments’ supporters.
