What is the Canadian Open PGA Tour and how does it operate?
The PGA Tour Canadian Open is the premier golfing competition to take place within Canada and is one that has been able to attract some of the biggest names in golf in the past, with a number of them having been able to play their way to victory when it has been held.
The first Canadian Open was played in 1904 and has since remained an annual event on the calendar, with the competition being governed by Golf Canada and the PGA in tandem together. The competition is the third-oldest golf competition in the world (behind The Open Championship and the US Open) and remains incredibly popular.
Where & when is the Canadian Open on the PGA Tour held?
The PGA Canadian Open is held at different golf courses all around Canada each year that it appears on the calendar, with the Glen Abbey Golf Course in Oakville, Ontario, having hosted it the most times out of any other course. The competition has been held here on at least 30 occasions, with the Royal Montreal Golf Club (which is across Quebec) being the closest with just 10.
The Canadian Open PGA event is typically hosted in June of each year.
