Hamilton Golf & Country Club played host to the PGA’s 2012 RBC Canadian Open for the 5th time, having hosted previously in 2006, 2003, 1930 and 1919.
This event drew over 100,000 spectators and a world wide television audience of over 500 million TV viewers in 29 countries, plus 175 media were in attendance.
The tournament’s return to the Harry Colt designed course in 2019 is timed perfectly – marking the 100-year anniversary since the renowned club originally hosted Canada’s National Open Golf Championship.
“Together with our partners at RBC and the PGA TOUR, we are extremely proud to be bringing the RBC Canadian Open back to the Hamilton Golf and Country Club in both 2019 and 2023,” said Laurence Applebaum, CEO of Golf Canada. “There are few courses in the country that can equal Hamilton in terms of excellence and storied history and I am delighted that the club’s membership and the City of Hamilton have joined us to bring the RBC Canadian Open back to Hamilton twice over the next five years.”
