Golf Saskatchewan has announced the introduction of a one-day tournament in September that will allow club champions to compete for the inaugural Saskatchewan Champions Cup.
Member clubs across the province will be eligible to send six club champions to the 18-hole event being hosted by The Legends Golf Club in Warman on Sept. 24. Golf Saskatchewan Director of Championships Steve Ryde said adding an event in the fall has been a goal for a few years.
“Having an event that wraps up the championship season in a fun, competitive way, while potentially increasing the stakes for club championships at our member facilities, our organization figured this was a win-win for golfers from across Saskatchewan to show pride in their home club or community,” Ryde said.
As mentioned, clubs can send up to six players from their facility with the top four players scores used to determine the first ever Saskatchewan Champions Cup winners. The competitors can be junior, amateur, or senior champions, either women or men. Players must be members of Golf Canada and Saskatchewan.
“We’re very excited to host the first of many Champions Cups,” said Davidson Matyczuk, the General Manager at The Legends. “We’ve hosted several Golf Saskatchewan events in recent years and are looking forward to this one-day tournament. Our club champions here take great pride in the inter-club competitions, adding a chance to represent and promote you club on a provincial level is a nice add to club playdowns across Saskatchewan.”
More details will be announced as the season progresses.
Golf Saskatchewan also announced Friday that the newly announced Saskatchewan Four-Ball Championship will be rescheduled for later this year. The event was slated for May 21 and 22 at Valley Regional Park Golf Course. The 36-hole all-inclusive tournament will now be played July 23 and 24 at Rosthern.
