2021 Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship Golf Tournament
The 34th annual Canadian Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship is coming to Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo August 24-27, 2021. At the tournament, Canada’s top male amateur golfers, aged 25 and over, will compete for a national title. The tournament will be played at the Fort McMurray Golf Club and will be the first national championship event hosted in the region since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020.
“We are very excited to be welcoming amateur golfers from across the country to Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo. We have been anticipating the return of sporting events for a long time and we can’t wait for the tournament to get underway,” says Tyler Cole, Economic Development Officer, Sports & Events, Fort McMurray Wood Buffalo Economic Development & Tourism. “Local golfers know that the tight fairways of Fort McMurray Golf Club are a tough test of your game - we wish all of the visiting golfers the best of luck in the tournament.”
Due to the pandemic and border restrictions, the tournament will consist of Canadian-based players only for the first time in many years. Players from eight provinces are registered to compete, with nine players from Fort McMurray in the field.
“We are thrilled to bring this talented field to Fort McMurray Golf Club,” said Adam Cinel, Tournament Director with Golf Canada. “The Mid-Amateur is a great opportunity for Canadian amateurs to find success and compete on a national stage. The club has worked tirelessly to have the course in pristine condition and it will be sure to draw out some exciting competition.”
Tournament organizers have worked closely with Alberta Health Services to ensure that the event follows COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Spectators are welcome to attend free of charge.
