The Ridge at Manitou Golf Club in Ontario’s Muskoka region will be home to this year’s PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada.
The event will take place Sept. 9-11 in McKellar, Ont.
“We couldn’t be more excited to take one of our prestigious national championships, the PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada presented by Titleist and FootJoy-to one of the country’s most stunning golf regions,” said PGA of Canada president Gregg Schubert.
“Not only does this championship annually feature some of the most talented players from our association, but it also showcases some of the best courses in Canada too,” he added.
The Ridge at Manitou Golf Club is located on 300 acres east of Parry Sound, Ont., but only 150 acres of land were used by architect Tom McBroom in keeping the Muskoka landscape, home to moose, black bears, wolves, foxes, great-horned owls and deer.
“We are extremely excited at The Ridge at Manitou Golf Club hosting the 2014 PGA of Canada Assistants’ Championship and look forward to the arrival of Canada’s top assistant professionals,” said Travis Spiess, director of golf at The Ridge at Manitou.
“The golf course is known for its awe-inspiring landscape with inviting fairways, rolling greens, exposed areas of rocky Canadian Shield and artful bunkers,” he said.
The nearly 7,000-yard golf course is also a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
Ontario’s Billy Walsh is defending champion after winning last year in a playoff against British Columbia’s Lindsay Bernakevitch.
