With province-wide restrictions currently in place in Ontario through May 20 and in Alberta through May 26, Golf Canada has cancelled the 2021 NextGen Ontario and Western Championships.

The NextGen Ontario Championship was scheduled for May 27-30 at Saugeen Golf Club in Port Elgin, ON, while the NextGen Western Championship was slated for June 3-6 at Leduc Golf Club in Leduc, AB. The latest restrictions in each province rule out regional travel and also prohibit sport competitions of any kind.

In consultation with provincial health officials and our event partners, Golf Canada will continue to evaluate provincial health and travel restrictions related to COVID-19 to make informed and responsible decisions related to our 2021 championship schedule. The safety and well-being of our championship competitors, tournament staff and volunteers along with event stakeholders and our host community at large is paramount to Golf Canada.

The feasibility of conducting each NextGen Championship will be evaluated no later than 3-4 weeks prior to the start of the competition. An updated list of Golf Canada’s 2021 competitions is available here
