The Victoria Golf Club in Victoria, B.C., will host the 2016 PGA Championship of Canada, June 12-16.
“Next year’s championship will undoubtedly be a success story thanks to the marriage of a one-kind-facility like Victoria and a best-in-class event such as the PGA Championship of Canada,” said PGA of Canada president Constant Priondolo.
Founded in 1893, the Victoria Golf Club is the oldest course in Canada on its original site. Designed by AV Macan, it offers craggy shorelines, lush fairways, challenging ocean breezes and undulating greens.
“When Victoria Golf Club was presented with the chance to host the PGA Championship of Canada, we immediately thought it was an amazing opportunity,” said Victoria Golf Club’s general manager and PGA of Canada member Scott Kolb.
“We feel our club is an ideal venue for a match play event with its variety of shot options, natural elements and undulating greens,” he added.
