COMMUNITY INFORMATION

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

The CPKC Women’s Open is one of Canada’s premier sport and entertainment events delivering world-class LPGA Tour golf and experiences for spectators of all ages. The 2024 tournament, which will be the 50th edition of the event, will attract over 65,000 spectators over seven days and will be broadcasted to millions of households world-wide. In partnership with title sponsor CPKC, the tournament has also set a goal of raising $2.75 million for the Alberta Children’s Hospital.

Community Information Night

A community information night will be held at Earl Grey Golf Club (6540 20 St SW, Calgary) 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. Please check back here for more information regarding the timing of this event as well.

Parking and Shuttle Information

Due to the configuration of Earl Grey Golf Club within the Calgary community, the tournament will require the use of the hydro corridor on the west side of the course off of Longridge Drive for tournament staff parking. (Note: only tournament designated vehicles with the appropriate credentials will be permitted to park in this access-controlled lot). Tournament organizers have worked with AltaLink to acquire the use of the field for temporary parking from July 21st – July 28th, 2024. This field will be used to park tournament staff, caddies, and media; these groups arrive on site early on each day & remain until play finishes, limiting in and out traffic.

In addition, the tournament has identified the below location as its drop off & pick up point for spectator and volunteer shuttles coming from Mt. Royal University:

CPKC Women’s Open Open spectator parking is to be accommodated only within the designated lots at Mt. Royal University and as such will not be permitted on any residential street within the Lakeview, Lakeview Village, Garrison Green, & North Glenmore Park communities. More information on parking & spectator shuttles can be found here.

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 7:00am on your regularly scheduled collection day as collection may be earlier than usual.

Street Parking & The Restricted Zone

A restricted parking area will be temporarily created within the Lakeview & North Glemore communities. Advisory “Special Event, NO Parking” signs will be placed at each roadway entrance and throughout the community within the restricted parking area. The purpose of these is to prevent tournament spectator vehicles from parking within the neighbourhood. Golf Canada will work with the City of Calgary to determine a system to allow residents living within the neighbourhood to continue to utilize street parking without disruption.

Along with the advisory signage, additional traffic bylaw staff will be present throughout the event week. Vehicles parking on the street within the restricted area that are not designated will risk ticketing under City of Calgary bylaw.

The residential Special Event Parking Plan will be in effect during the following dates and times:

On-street parking will be available outside of these times in areas where parking would normally be allowed for up to 12 hours.

Additional information on community planning will be shared as it is finalized by Golf Canada and the City of Calgary.
