Last week, the PGA of BC regretfully announced that the Association’s Tournament of Champions, Assistants’ Championship and Seniors’ Championship will not be contested in 2020 due to ongoing concerns related to COVID-19.

The Tournament of Champions presented by PING Canada & Tee-On Golf Systems Inc. was scheduled for May 25 at Nanaimo Golf Club, while the Assistants’ & Seniors’ Championships presented by Natera Sport & Arbor Memorial Inc. were slated for June 3-4 at Talking Rock Golf Course.

The PGA of BC Board of Directors arrived at this decision after extensive consideration of the direction provided by regional and provincial health authorities, of further measures required to make golf a permissible activity amid current circumstances, and in consultation with host facilities and championship sponsors.

“Cancelling championships is an unprecedented measure within the PGA of BC’s history, but these are unprecedented circumstances,” said Executive Director Donald Miyazaki. “We thank our Preferred Partners sponsoring these events for working with us to address to these challenging occurrences. All have been supportive as we make these difficult decisions and we look forward to building on our partnerships as they continue to support our Association.

“We know this is disappointing news for our affected competitors and host facilities as well, and we thank them for their understanding.”

The PGA of BC is pleased to announce that exhibitor registration is now open for the Association's 2020 Buying Show, which returns to Richmond Olympic Oval on Oct. 14-15.

We are proud to continue to offer booth rates that are among the most affordable in Canada, with special pricing available to Preferred Partners and Sponsors of the Association.
Although it is difficult to predict the impacts related to COVID-19 that may persist by the scheduled dates of this year’s Buying Show, please be assured that the PGA of BC is closely monitoring the guidance and regulations set forth by regional and provincial health authorities in assessing the safety and viability of this event. Should it be determined that the 2020 Buying Show exceeds the parameters of permissible gatherings outlined by relevant authorities, or that it cannot otherwise be conducted in a manner that is safe for all participants, registered exhibitors will receive a full refund of their registration fees.

Earlier today, the PGA of Canada announced its decision to cancel the 2020 DCM PGA Women's Championship of Canada due to COVID-19.

The event was scheduled for June 8-10 at Oshawa Golf & Curling Club in Ontario.

“As always, our top priority remains the health and safety of our players, staff and volunteers," said Adam LeBrun, PGA of Canada managing director of championships. "We are evaluating several options to provide our female members with the opportunity to compete later in the season when it is safe and responsible to do so."
