PGA Tour Canada to open its 2013 season in Victoria

Golf fanatics will want to circle June 3 on their calendars, as that’s when the season gets underway in Victoria for the Times Colonist Island Savings Open. Set at Uplands Golf Club, the round should see some of the nation’s biggest names in golf going head to head as they battle it out for a strong start to the season – and the $150,000 prize that goes to the winner. 

“This is a very solid starting point for our schedule,” Jeff Monday, president of the PGA Tour Canada, told TSN. “Our goal is to provide our members with quality events with long-term commitments, which leave a lasting impact in the communities we play and we feel we are well on our way to achieving those goals. We are working on several opportunities to increase the number of events not only this year but in 2014.”

Fans who want to make the most of this event should plan trips to Victoria and the Magnolia Hotel & Spa in order to make the most of their weekend. With so much excitement stemming from the golf tournament, as well as all of the activities and attractions to take in around the inner harbour, travellers can create a memorable and action-packed weekend.
