PGA Tour Canada Announces 2022 Schedule Prince Edward Island Open | June 27 - July 3

CARDIGAN, PEI—PGA TOUR Canada and Sports & Entertainment Atlantic are excited to announce the fourth tournament on the Tour’s 2022 Fortinet Cup schedule is the second annual Prince Edward Island Open, which will take place June 27 to July 3 at Dundarave Golf Course.

 

Last week, PGA TOUR Canada announced its sponsorship agreement with Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions based in Sunnyvale, California. The Fortinet Cup will mirror the competitive structure of the points-based competitions on the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and PGA TOUR Latinoamérica. The Prince Edward Island Open will offer official Fortinet Cup points to players.

 

“We had our first taste of PGA TOUR Canada golf a year ago with the unofficial event we contested. We are certainly looking forward to the Prince Edward Island Open offering full Fortinet Cup points and one of the key tournaments on our 2022 schedule,” said PGA TOUR Canada Executive Director Scott Pritchard. “Our players will be thrilled with the quality of the world-class Dundarave Golf Course located in one of the beautiful, scenic spots in all of Canada.”

 

In 2021, due to COVID-19 implications, the Tour held a modified version of the Prince Edward Island Open in late August, with the field made up of players already living in Canada. PGA TOUR Canada and S|E|A join forces this year to stage a full-field event of 156 players coming from the Tour’s worldwide membership.

 

S|E|A will once again serve as the host organization for the Prince Edward Island Open under the leadership of Chris Larsen, President of Sports & Entertainment Atlantic (S|E|A).

 

“Last year’s modified tournament demonstrated there’s very strong support for the return of professional golf to PEI. We look forward with great anticipation to leveraging last year into a fully featured PGA TOUR Canada event,” Larsen said. “The Prince Edward Island Open is the only PGA TOUR Canada event in Atlantic Canada, something to which we should all be proud.”

 

PGA TOUR Canada and S|E|A also announced Terry Hamilton as the 2022 Prince Edward Island Open Honorary Chair.

Hamilton has contributed immensely to Golf in Prince Edward Island and has served for more than 50 years as a club professional. Throughout his career in PEI, Hamilton was one of the four founding members of Golf PEI and has remained continuously involved. Hamilton served as the head pro at Brudenell River Golf Course, Dundarave Golf Course and Links at Crowbush Cove for more than 10 years.

 

“The announcement of the Prince Edward Island Open returning as a stop on the 2022 Fortinet Cup is exciting news. The event will generate regional tourism and maybe the next Corey Connors will be here!” said Hamilton. “I am pleased to be named Honorary Chair of this year’s tournament and look forward to a successful event.”

 

Earlier today, PGA TOUR Canada announced its 11-tournament schedule that begins the first week of June, with the season concluding in mid-September at the Fortinet Cup Championship in Kitchener, Ontario. The Prince Edward Island Open is the last of a three-tournament-in-succession stretch, with Edmonton’s ATB Financial Classic (June 16-19) and the Elk Ridge Open (June 23-26) in Waskesiu, Saskatchewan, preceding the event at Dundarave Golf Course.

The Cavendish Farms University Cup is the U SPORTS coveted men's university hockey championship that features the 8 best teams from across Canada. For 2022, the Acadia Axemen are the host, being joined by schools from the AUS (2 Teams), OUA-RSEQ (3 Teams), and Canada West (2 Teams) conferences.

 

Due to scheduling challenges caused by delayed return to play plans in the Conferences, U SPORTS pushed back the dates of the tournament to date of March 31 – April 3. This timing change also triggered a venue change as Scotiabank Centre in Halifax was no longer available. As a result, the Championship will be hosted in Wolfville NS at Acadia University’s Andrew H McCain Arena, bringing the best hockey in Canada outside of Pro to the avid hockey fans in the Annapolis Valley.

 

"The most recent University Cup date and location changes guarantee that hockey fans in the Valley will have the opportunity to enjoy an unparalleled level of University hockey, the likes of which has never been seen previously. The eight best men's varsity teams from across Canada will compete for the honour of raising the David Johnson University Cup in Wolfville. With Acadia as the host team, it doesn't get any more home for the Axemen” said Chris Larsen, President of Sports & Entertainment Atlantic (S|E|A), Acadia’s partner in hosting the Championship.

 

As we inch closer to puck drop on March 31st, all roads lead to Acadia University in Wolfville NS. When the Puck Drops, Be there.
