The announcements are coming hard and fast for the PGA of Canada and their Championships.
The venerable Credit Valley Golf and Country Club in Mississauga, Ontario has been named as the 2015 host of the Mr. Lube PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada presented by Adams.
To be played on August 11-14, pros competing in the 54 hole national championship will enjoy a Robbie Robinson layout that is highly regarded.
“The PGA of Canada is very excited about holding another national championship at the outstanding Credit Valley Golf and Country Club,” said PGA of Canada president Constant Priondolo. “Credit Valley has long supported both the PGA member and the association’s national championships.”
The club has been the site of many significant events over the years including a Canadian Amateur, the 1993 PGA Championship of Canada (won by Steve Stricker) and, more recently, the 2008 PGA Women’s Championship.
“On behalf of the Credit Valley Golf and Country Club, I am pleased to say how excited we are to host this year’s PGA Seniors’ Championship of Canada,” said PGA of Canada executive professional and Credit Valley’s chief operating officer Ian Webb. “Our golf course will be a spectacular test for the players with its tight tree-lined fairways as well as large, fast, undulating greens,” he said, adding, “I know that our members and our employees are very excited to have an opportunity to once again showcase our facility to some of the best players in the world.”
Originally the hunting and fishing grounds of the Ojibway people, Credit Valley traces its golfing beginning back to 1930. Ontario’s then Lieutenant Governor, W.D. Ross, commissioned that six holes be built on the original property which was located where the driving range and parking lot now stand.
Remi Bouchard emerged victorious after besting Ken Tarling and Jean Laforce in a playoff at last year’s Mr. Lube PGA Senior’s Championship presented by Adams at Beverly G&CC in Copetown, Ont.
