ACTON, Ont. — The PGA of Canada is proud to announce the launch of its newest national event, the Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada.
The Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada is a new national series of events taking place at more than 200 golf facilities around the country in 2016, culminating with regional finals and a national final later this year.
The series of events expects to draw nearly 20,000 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 later this year with a PGA of Canada professional playing on their team at some of Canada’s finest golf courses.
“The PGA of Canada and its 3,700 members from across the country are extremely thrilled with the launch of our newest national event, the Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada,” said PGA of Canada CEO Gary Bernard. “We look forward to working alongside the team at Hyundai Canada for many years to come and showcasing their fantastic vehicles through our events.”
Each golfer who plays in a Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada local event will receive impressive gifting and prizing from supporting partners.
“Hyundai is proud to help bring the PGA Scramble to Canadian golfers,” said Don Romano, President and CEO for Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. “This grassroots, amateur-level tournament gives golfers everywhere the opportunity to compete, play with professionals, and challenge themselves to raise their game like no other series in the country.”
Individuals and teams may attempt to qualify in as many local events as they want with the carrot of reaching the regional and national finals. For many, the series of events will provide an opportunity to tee it up at golf courses they wouldn’t normally have an opportunity to play.
For those qualifying to play out of their regional qualifier, the Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada national final promises to be a golf trip of a lifetime. The 36-hole championship scramble at one of Canada’s premier venues will be part of a festival of special events, prizing, activations and a chance to interact with the latest Hyundai vehicles.
As the Official Vehicle of the PGA of Canada, Hyundai Auto Canada will also offer a fleet program to the 3,700 PGA Professionals in Canada during the partnership.
