The City of Calgary will play host to the prestigious CPKC Women’s Open at Earl Grey Golf Club from July 22 to July 28, 2024.

Golf Canada in partnership with the City of Calgary is working to ensure a safe and successful event for all. Golf Canada is committed to the continuous communication with the community as planning is finalized. All neighbourhoods can be assured that all municipal services including waste collection and public transit will not be impacted during the tournament.

Community Information Night

A community information night will be held at Earl Grey Golf Club (6540 20 St SW, Calgary) from 7:30 – 9:00 PM on June 25th, 2024. This informal drop-in session will offer local residents & business owners the opportunity learn more about the CPKC Women’s Open and ask any questions that they may have about its impact in the community. Tournament organizers and city officials will be present and available for discussion. Additional information on this evening will be included in mailout information packages and through both event and City social media. More information on the timing for the information night will be available here at a later date.

Community Access

Access will be restricted via a police roadblock at Crowchild Trail and Longridge Drive during tournament hours (approximately 7am – 7pm). The City of Calgary will distribute hang tags to all residents living within the Earl Grey neighbourhood east of Crowchild Trail to allow access, residences will be eligible to request additional hangtags as required from the City. A vehicle must display the required hang tag in order to access the community. Paid duty police officers will monitor this checkpoint and help control access.

These tags will be distributed by the City in early/mid July.

Paid duty officers stationed at the closure will be instructed to use their discretion in allowing non-tagged vehicles past checkpoints, e.g., if a motorist fails to display a hang tag but produces a driver’s license with a Longridge Drive address, the paid duty officer would be more likely to allow entry than if the motorist were to say they were visiting someone on Longridge Drive. However, the only way to guarantee passage is to display a hang tag.

It is understood that residents inside the closure area may require outside visitors to come to their homes during tournament week. As with residents who fail to produce a hang tag, paid duty officers are more likely to allow a branded landscaper or contractor vehicle through the checkpoint than an unmarked private vehicle.

The purpose of this access restriction is to limit tournament-related traffic from infiltrating the neighbourhood, parking on local streets, etc.

Parking & Shuttles

CPKC Women’s Open spectator and volunteer parking will be located at Mount Royal University. Spectators will not be permitted to park in the south portion of the North Glenmore Park neighbourhood, south of Glenmore Trail and east of Crowchild Trail. Golf Canada is working with the City of Calgary and bylaw enforcement to implement a plan to enforce parking restrictions in these areas throughout the week of the CPKC Women’s Open (July 22-28). This will include city-issued signage, enhanced enforcement, and temporary bylaw adjustment targeting non-resident traffic. More information on parking & spectator shuttles can be found here.

The tournament has identified the below location as its drop off & pick up point for spectator and volunteer shuttles coming from Mount Royal University.

The tournament will not affect any municipal services (i.e., trash pickup) that would otherwise normally take place. It is asked that your waste is curbside by 7:00 am on your regularly scheduled collection day as collection may be earlier than usual.
