Great Waterway Classic

The Great Waterway Classic officially announced Thursday that the Bay of Quinte Golf and Country Club will host the Open Qualifier for this year's PGA Tour Canada event on Aug. 18.

The classic will be the ninth event on this year's PGA Tour Canada schedule. It takes place Aug. 18-24 at Loyalist Golf & Country Club in Bath, ON, just outside of Kingston

"We are so pleased to host the Open Qualifier for the prestigious The Great Waterway Classic. The Bay of Quinte Country Club has hosted many Provincial Amateur Championships over the past few decades and this new honor is something we are very proud of," said Marc Ray, general manager of the club.

Last year, The Great Waterway Classic posted the second highest open qualifying field as 97 players competed in the one-day qualifier vying for the 10 qualifying spots available into the tournament field.

"We are pleased to be able to work with a venue such as Bay of Quinte and incorporate them into this year's tournament" said Brad Parkins, tournament director of The Great Waterway Classic. "The course will be a great test for those looking to qualify for this year's event and we need to thank the ownership, management and members for providing us with their first class facility."

A full field of 156 players will tee it up on the Thursday and Friday of the official tournament (Aug. 21-22) with the top 60 golfers and ties making it into weekend play.

Players will be shooting for the top prize of $27,000 in the season long race to be one of the top five money winners at the end of the season and earn status on the Web.com Tour for the following season.

The Bay of Quinte Golf and Country Club is located at 1830 Old Hwy. 2, Quinte West, ON. It is a parkand layout playing to par 72 and measures 6,571 yards from the tips.

The track will also host the Canadian Golf Teachers Federation’s annual Teachers Cup on Sept. 21, 22 and 23.
