With heightened uncertainty and global concern related to COVID-19, Golf Canada continues to evaluate all aspects of our business to operate and make informed and responsible decisions within the best interests of our athletes, staff, volunteers, host clubs, partners and other stakeholders health and well-being.

Today (March 30, 2020), Golf Canada is announcing its decision to cancel or postpone the events listed below.

Golf Canada has cancelled the following 2020 NextGen Championships: 

Golf Canada has postponed the following 2020 RBC Canadian Open Regional Qualifiers: 

Golf Canada has also decided to postpone the 2020 Canadian University/College Championship:

Canadian University/College Championship | May 24-28 | Club de golf Les Quatre Domaines, Mirabel, Qué.

Golf Canada has cancelled all National Rules and Course Ratings Seminars:

The USGA previously announced the cancellation of local (first stage) qualifying for the 2020 U.S. Open in its current form. They are working with their Allied Golf Association (AGA) partners and International Federations to redesign qualifying going forward.

The decision to cancel or postpone these events was not taken lightly, but given unprecedented times, we believe it is the best course of action. The safety and well-being of our championship competitors, tournament staff and volunteers along with our host site members and staff are paramount to Golf Canada. We also appreciate that all Canadians are dealing with health and travel concerns along with more pressing matters of uncertainty.

We share in the disappointment of those affected and thank all for their understanding during this extraordinary time.
