Hospitality Buyer Info

To Our Valued Corporate Hospitality Buyers,

With continued public health concerns as well as international travel and government restrictions due to COVID-19, it is with great disappointment that the PGA TOUR, in consultation with Golf Canada and RBC, has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 RBC Canadian Open.

Since the onset of this global pandemic, Golf Canada and RBC in partnership with the PGA TOUR have been diligently monitoring guidelines from health and government officials and pulling together the information we needed to make informed and responsible decisions.

This difficult decision to cancel protects the best interests of our community including the health and safety of spectators, players, our staff and volunteers, and our many supporting partners. This extends to our valued corporate clients and guests who play a meaningful role in the success of Canada’s National Open Golf Championship. While we share in the crushing disappointment of our fans, players, volunteers and many event partners, we feel this is the most prudent and safest course of action.

The RBC Canadian Open has always been a rallying point for Canadian golf. It is now our full intention to push forward together with RBC, the PGA TOUR, the City of Toronto and our host clubs with a goal to bring the 2021 RBC Canadian Open to St. George’s Golf and Country Club with Islington Golf Club as the official practice facility.

We want our corporate clients to join us in celebrating the return of our Open in 2021—an unparalleled entertainment property that delivers a premium client hosting experience. Your Golf Canada sales representative is ready to support your business objectives through this extraordinary period and will be connecting directly to discuss opportunities to transition your involvement towards the 2021 RBC Canadian Open.

We know that everyone is continuing to evaluate the impact of this global pandemic on your respective businesses and our thoughts and well wishes are with you and your loved ones. We also thank you for your continued support through this difficult and unprecedented time.

As we pivot our collective efforts towards a celebrated return of the RBC Canadian Open, we hope that you will rally with us in delivering an exceptional event experience in 2021.
