The PGA of BC will conduct seven championship events in three of the Association’s geographical regions in 2021, affording its membership several opportunities to compete against their peers throughout the season.
Following a 2020 season in which a handful of events were cancelled or modified due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 calendar will include all traditional championships open exclusively to member Professionals. As well, the Tournament of Champions will kick off the schedule at Richmond’s Mayfair Lakes Golf & Country Club, providing a chance for Club Professionals to play alongside an elite amateur competitor from their facility of affiliation.
The city of Kamloops will play host to three events, while Victoria and Chase are among other communities that will welcome PGA of BC championship tournaments in 2021.
