Phil Mickelson will be making a trip to Canada next week, and no, it’s not because he is late for an appearance at the RBC Canadian Open.
The 42-time winner on the PGA Tour will be in Calgary to visit his premiere Canadian golf course design project – the Mickelson National Golf Club being built by the Windmill Group.
Mickelson will be the main attraction at a press conference on September 10th at The Hamptons Golf Club where he will discuss the project with media members.
The 7718-yard golf course is being constructed in a planned community called Harmony, a 1700 acre village concept in the Springbank area, just west of Calgary.
“I’m thrilled about my partnership with Windmill Golf Group and the opportunity to design my first signature golf course in Canada,” said Mickelson. “We are in the process of creating an outstanding and versatile golf course – one designed to provide both plenty of options for amateurs to enjoy and a strong test for the world’s best players in a PGA Tour event.”
Managing Partner of Windmill Golf Group, Barry Ehlert added, “At Mickelson National Golf Club, our goal is to set new standards in providing a vibrant and exciting golfing experience – we’re investing in creating Canada’s flagship club that members will be proud of.”
