The Vancouver Golf Club has been selected as the host venue for the 2015 Canadian Pacific Women’s Open, which will be played the week of Aug. 17-23 with a purse of $2.25-million U.S.
In 2012, Lydia Ko won her first of two Canadian Women’s Open championships at the Vancouver Golf Club.
The championship’s return marks the fourth time that the club will host the LPGA Tour, including what was the du Maurier Ltd Classic in 1988 and 1991.
“Vancouver is a world class city with passionate and knowledgeable golf fans which made for a hugely successful event when the club played host to our National Women’s Open Championship in 2012,” said Golf Canada CEO Scott Simmons.
The club is located in Coquitlam, 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver.
“Our membership it extremely excited and honoured to once again host the LPGA Tour’s finest players at the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open,” said host club volunteer chair Paul Batchelor.
“Our club truly enjoyed hosting the 2012 Canadian Women’s Open and we are thrilled to once again showcase our club and our classic golf course to the LPGA players and Canadian golf fans,” he added.
Golf Canada and The Vancouver Golf Club announced a recruitment push to fill approximately 1,200 volunteer positions. Interested individuals can find out more here.
The 2014 Canadian Pacific Women’s Open will be held the week of Aug. 18–24 at the London Hunt and Country Club in London, Ont.
