The 8th edition of the PGA of Canada – Ottawa Zone PING Challenge Cup will take place September 18th at the Greyhawk Golf Club in Cumberland, Ontario. It is presented by Flagstick Golf Magazine.
The annual event sees two teams of Zone professionals (Head Professionals versus Assistant/Associate Professionals), chosen by their rankings on the year’s Flagstick.com Players Tour, battle over 36 holes in a friendly team competition.
