PLAYERS
The PGA Assistants’ Championship of Canada annually features some of the youngest, best players the association has to offer. 

And this year is no different. 

We’ve got five past PGA Assistants’ champions plus this year's PGA Championship of Canada winner teeing it up at The Winston. Plus, 11 of the top 20-ranked PGA Player Rankings presented by RBC are in the field.

THE
WINSTON
First opened to the public as the Regal in 1923, the golf course has matured over 90-years to become one of the finest in Calgary. The course has seen many changes in its day including a major re-design completed in 1992 by renowned golf architect Les Furber. 

Formerly known as Calgary Elks, the course has played host to the 2007 Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada’s ATB Classic and most recently the 2012 PGA of Alberta Championship
