The LPGA Tour has announced that in an effort to minimize risks associated with the global outbreak of COVID-19, all LPGA Tour events up to and including the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship (April 30-May 3) have been postponed.
With this news, we wanted to provide an update regarding the 2020 CPKC Women’s Open, scheduled for August 31 – September 6 at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver.
First and foremost, the health and safety of everyone associated with the CPKC Women’s Open and our community will continue to be our top priority as we navigate the ongoing health crisis.
This is a very fluid situation that requires constant review, communication and transparency. We are working closely with key partners, such as the LPGA Tour, PGA TOUR, Canadian Olympic Committee and other national/international sport and entertainment properties to make informed and responsible decisions.
As we prepare for the 2020 playing of the CPKC Women’s Open, Golf Canada will continue to monitor information provided by the World Health Organization, Health Canada, B.C. Public Health and other expert governmental/regional health experts to follow developments and receive guidance.
Golf Canada will provide status updates including any additional protocols put in place to ensure the health and safety of all in attendance. We encourage our fans to stay informed on the developments of COVID-19 through official health sources and will provide further updates as new information becomes available.
