This year’s PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada will be played Sept. 8-11 at Camelot Golf and Country Club in Cumberland, Ont., near Ottawa.
Designed by Thomas McBroom, Camelot opened for play in 1992.
“We are truly excited to showcase our exceptional golf course and facility,” said Camelot Golf and Country Club’s head professional Bill Keating.
“The PGA of Canada conducts world class championships and we’re pleased to have a chance to showcase Camelot to not only those in the talented field, but to the entire association as well,” he added.
The shot value, playability, design balance and aesthetics of Camelot is complemented by by towering pines and views of the Ottawa River and Gatineau Hills.
“Camelot is really a combination of two characteristics. It’s links-style up in the meadowland where the holes are defined by the fescue roughs, where the rest is situated in woodsy parkland,” said McBroom.
The $60,000 PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada will be contested over 54 holes, with a 36-hole cut to the low 60 players and ties.
There will also be a 36-hole Inter-Zone competition comprised of four players on each team representing their respective PGA zones over the first two rounds.
