The official PGA Tour Canada stop is slated for Aug. 18-24 at Loyalist Golf and Country Club in Bath, Ont., just outside of Kingston.
After the success of last year's event at Upper Canada Golf Course in Morrisburg, the CJGA decided to re-up as the host organization for the tournament, which will see players shooting to finish in The Five and receive Web.com Tour status for the following season.
Loyalist, a stunning Ted Baker design, has a reputation for being one of the best-conditioned layouts in the region. The 6,625 yards of native grasses, strategic bunkering and colourful natural watercourse creates a challenging course for beginners and skilled players alike.
"We are thrilled to once again be involved with The Great Waterway Classic and work alongside the likes of PGA Tour Canada, our title sponsor The Great Waterway and Loyalist Golf and Country Club," said Brad Parkins, COO of the CJGA and Tournament Director for this year's event. "Having received the vote of confidence from the tour after last year's event, it is a testament to the dedication and hard work the CJGA staff put in to make our program the leaders in junior golf in this country."
The Great Waterway Classic will be the ninth event on the 2014 PGA Tour Canada schedule. The tour starts in May and ends in September at the Tour Championship of Canada presented by Freedom 55 Financial at Sunningdale G&CC in London, Ont.
Chile's Hugo Leon won The Great Waterway Classic in 2013 at Upper Canada, making birdies on two of his final three holes to defeat Brandon Harkins by a single shot.
It was Leon’s second PGA Tour Canada victory and earned him 2014 Web.com TOUR status after he finished fourth on the PGA Tour Canada's Order of Merit.
