CALGARY, Alberta — There is no golf championship in Canada with a richer history than the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship. First played in 1895, Canada’s oldest championship embarks on its 125th anniversary with the best amateur golfers in the world heading to The Glencoe Golf & Country Club in Calgary, Alta., on August 3-6, 2020.
The 2020 event marks the first time the championship will host the 264-player field on the same property (Forest & Meadows courses) since the field expanded in 2010. The inaugural Canadian Men’s Amateur was held in 1895 and has been conducted every year since (excluding times of war between 1915-1918 and 1940-1945).
“Golf Canada is fortunate to have a world-class facility step up to make history as host of the 125th anniversary of the Canadian Men’s Amateur,” said tournament director, Adam Helmer. “The Glencoe Golf and Country Club is poised to raise the bar next year and we are grateful to have their commitment, along with Tourism Calgary, to host the world’s best amateurs in Calgary together at one facility.”
