PGA Tour Canada has made it official that it will have a Vancouver stop in 2014 with the new PC Financial Open, which will be played May 29-June 1 at Point Grey Golf and Country Club.
“For the past 15 years, PC Financial has been committed to supporting the communities we serve from coast-to-coast,” said Barry Columb, president of President’s Choice Financial.
“We are proud to be the title sponsor of the new PC Financial Open in Vancouver and excited to build on the success of our PGA Tour Canada partnership, which began last year,” said Barry Columb, president of PC Financial.
The full field event will see 156 players take on the 6,801-yard Point Grey Golf and Country Club. The First Tee of Greater Vancouver YMCA will be the official charitable benefactor for the PC Financial Open.
“The members and staff at Point Grey are excited by the prospect of being a regular stop on PGA Tour Canada’s schedule through 2016, a development which is very positive for golf and golf fans in the Lower Mainland,” said Peter Altridge, a director at Point Grey.
“Having hosted the B.C. Open for many years, we look forward to our association with PGA Tour Canada and the support that this event will provide to the First Tee of Vancouver.”
SDI Marketing, which is also involved with the Wildfire Invitational and the Cape Breton Celtic Classic with PGA Tour Canada, will be the host organization for the tournament.
SDI Marketing has also hired Linx Marketing, which operates the ATB Financial Classic and Syncrude Boreal Open in a consulting role for the event.
