Golf Saskatchewan expects LPGA Canadian Women’s Open to boost sport’s profile in province

There is a lot of excitement for August’s LPGA CP Canadian Women’s Open which will be going at the Wascana Golf and Country Club in Regina

The sport will certainly have the spotlight on it in Saskatchewan when the best in the world test out what the course has to offer.

Golf Saskatchewan’s executive director Brian Lee hopes it will result in the younger demographic perhaps trying out the sport.

“If the week we will see inspires young girls or boys to take up the game, it’s just an advocate for a better sport overall.”  Lee said.

Like many others, Lee is excited to see what the world’s best women’s golfers will do when they start battling the course as it has been a tough test for many Golf Saskatchewan events that have been put on over the years,

He says Mother Nature could play a big role.

“This course is going to be a great test. “Lee said. “It can showcase and identify a player’s weakest characteristics. You need to keep the ball in play, because if you don’t you can post an incredible number.  If the wind picks up, you could four different golf courses, but it will be a treat for golf in Saskatchewan to see how they fare.”
