PGA Tour Canada golf event hosted by Elk Ridge canceled – Saskatoon

The 2022 PGA Tour Canada golf event has been canceled due to inclement weather.

The announcement came early last Saturday after the PGA Tour Canada determined the course at Elk Ridge was unplayable due to the heavy rain they received at the end of the tournament — over four inches to be exact.

Of course the organizers are disappointed, but it was not in their hands. Now they can only look forward to better weather in 2023.

“Kudos to players across the community. Everyone cheered and did what we could. But at the end of the day…mother nature is in charge and unfortunately our golf course is unplayable by PGA Tour Canada standards. They have a duty to care about player safety,” said Ryan Danberg, managing partner of Elk Ridge Resort.

Elk Ridge Open tournament director Hugh Vassos says a lot of work went into the event thanks to the more than 100 volunteers who worked on and prepared the course.

“We pull ourselves together and start planning for next year. And what can we do besides build a dome? It was a good run-up event, I just feel sorry for all the volunteers and organizers,” said Vassos.

“They didn’t have a chance to present this event. I know it would have been fantastic.”

But there is still golf to be played and money to be made. Thanks to the Elk Ridge Resort ownership group, they’ll be raising $40,000 themselves for a one-round shootout on Sunday to offset the player’s expenses.

Sundays are free to attend and they even plan to put up hospitality tents on the 18th green. Since they also provide $3,000 to the golfer or golfers (whom it is then split between), they are able to make par on the 18th hole.

“A big compliment to our committee. I think they went way beyond that. Many players today are smiling about a canceled event. And at the end of the day, if you ever have to cancel an event, you couldn’t ask for a better plan B,” Danberg said.

“We players have a lot of expenses. Stay in a hotel and travel and all that stuff. For the ownership group to come out here in Elkridge and shoot this Sunday with a $40,000 a day purse, most people already have hotel rooms anyway so it’s really awesome and a great gesture,” said Brad Reeves, a golfer in The Contest.
