Canadian Men's Senior Championship POSTPONED

POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19: 2020 Canadian Men’s Senior Championship

NOTE: Due to COVID-19, Golf Canada has postponed this event. Pheasant Glen will now host this Championship in 2023!

Due to COVID-19, Golf Canada made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Senior Canadian Men’s Championship, which was scheduled at Pheasant Glen in September. We have since been in contact with Golf Canada and are excited to announce we have agreed to host the Championship in 2023! 

Pheasant Glen is proud to continue offering championship golf on Vancouver Island, and we will be happy to host future Provincial and National Championship golf tournaments when they are reinstated.

A very popular amateur golf event in Canada that began in 1962, the champion receives an exemption into the United States Golf Association’s Senior Amateur.

The Canadian Men’s Senior Championship is a 72 hole stroke play championship for men age 55 and over (Men Senior Division), and age 70 and over (Super Senior Division).

The Senior Championship is played over 72 holes with a cut after 36 holes. The Super Senior Championship is contested concurrently over the first 36 holes of the championship.

The Senior Inter-provincial Team Championship runs concurrently with the first 36 holes of the tournament.
