This year’s PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada is headed to Bermuda and the Port Royal Golf Course.
The 54-hole national championship, which features PGA of Canada head professionals, head teaching professionals and executive professionals, takes place Nov. 21-24.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to take the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada presented by Titleist & FootJoy to Bermuda and the wonderful venue of Port Royal Golf Course,” said PGA of Canada President Steve Wood.
“The PGA of Canada and Bermuda have a tremendous working relationship and this latest partnership further cements that fact,” he said.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority and the Fairmont Southampton will be partners for the national championship, with Titleist and FootJoy on board as presenting sponsor.
Designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1970, the most memorable feature of Port Royal is the signature par-three 16th hole, a 235-yard crescent-shaped hole that showcases the Atlantic Ocean.
Port Royal hosted the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 2009-2014.
In 2015, Danny King of The Performance Academy at Magna captured his third PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada.
In addition to competing for the overall championship trophy, players will earn points with hopes of moving up on the PGA of Canada Player Rankings.
Players who are ranked inside the top 64 following the PGA Club Professional Championship of Canada will earn invitations to the following year’s PGA Championship of Canada.
The Inter-Zone Team Championship, which is comprised of four players per zone (and three scores per team counting), is also handed out after 36-holes.
