The Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) will host the event at a time of year when players are fighting for the five Web.com Tour cards that will be earned at the end of the season.
"This tournament is going to showcase some of the great golf in the region, and the players will be spoiled by the area's activities and scenery," said Jeff Monday, PGA Tour Canada President.
As part of the CJGA's management of the event, a select number of junior golfers will gain entry into the tournament through a series of qualifiers across Canada.
The CJGA operates a competitive development program that focuses on all areas of the sport including clinics, tournaments, mentoring programs with tour professionals and sending teams to represent the CJGA and Canada in international competition.
"The CJGA is delighted to be involved with The Great Waterway Classic and to be affiliated with the PGA Tour and PGA Tour Canada," said Brad Parkins, chief operations officer of the CJGA. "Bringing a first-class event to The Great Waterway Region will showcase not only some of the tour's top players, but it will enable some of the country's top junior players to gain an invaluable experience during tournament week."
Upper Canada Golf Course has long stood as one of golf's hidden gems in Eastern Ontario since its construction in the 1960s.
At 6,922 yards, the Robbie Robinson design winds through evergreen and deciduous trees and along waterways, challenging beginners and skilled players alike. The course is located 11 km east of Morrisburg off County Rd. 2.
