Teeing up the Inaugural PGA TOUR Canada Golf Tournament


Lethbridge - We are holding a media conference to kick off the inaugural Lethbridge Paradise Canyon Open, the fourth stop on the Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada schedule, on Wednesday, June 20, 2018. Ron Sakamoto, the owner of Paradise Canyon Golf Resort, will hit the ceremonial opening tee shot of the event. Mayor Spearman may be convinced to do the same!
 
156 golfers will compete for a $36,000 cut of the $200,000 total purse in the Paradise Canyon Open, which runs Thursday, June 21-Sunday, June 24, 2018.

It is going to be a packed week, including an Indigenous Youth golf clinic being held following Wednesday’s media conference.

“We have gathered a huge team of volunteers, the course is Tournament ready, 4-day golf tickets are available, and we are very much looking forward to watching this level of professional golf in Lethbridge,” says Ron Sakamoto, Owner, Paradise Canyon Golf Resort.
