Le Blainvillier to Host the 2020 Mackenzie Investments Open

 

 

As part of its multi-year partnership with the Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada, Golf Québec is proud to announce that Le Blainvillier will host the 2020 Mackenzie Investments Open from September 7 to 13.

 

Located in the northern suburbs of Montréal, in the heart of an immense natural wooded area, Le Blainvillier is a 36-hole private golf club with an outstanding reputation. With two championship courses offering exceptional playing conditions, Le Blainvillier is a great challenge for golf enthusiasts of all levels. For the Mackenzie Investments Open, competitors from around the world will play the Heritage course. www.golfblainvillier.com/


"We are extremely excited to team up with Le Blainvillier, we feel like the players will enjoy the golf course and the fantastic facilities," said Mackenzie Tour Vice-President Scott Pritchard. "We'd like to thank Elm Ridge Country Club for their hospitality the past two seasons, hosting the Mackenzie Tour's penultimate event."

 

Since its opening, Le Blainvillier has hosted several noteworthy events including Québec professional golf tournaments and provincial amateur championships, including the 2009 Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship which featured eventual PGA TOUR Canada alumni Nick Taylor and Mackenzie Hughes. Marc-Étienne Bussières recorded the best score by a Québec player in the Championship.

 

“Golf Québec is honoured to partner with Le Blainvillier, but ultimately we are most excited to provide playing opportunities to the top players of the province in an international field,” said Éric Couture, Tournament Director of Golf Québec. “We are confident that our host club will provide an exceptional challenge to all competitors”, he added.

 

The 2020 Mackenzie Investments Open will be comprised of a field of 144 players. Following the tournament, the top-60 players on the Order of Merit will earn a spot in the following week’s Canada Life Championship, the final event of the season which grants Korn Ferry Status to the top-10 players on the Mackenzie Tour. A select number of sponsor exemptions will be awarded to Québec based players, which will be announced at a later date.

 

The membership of the Mackenzie Tour will once again look to make the next step on the path to the PGA TOUR by leveraging their performances into advantages to reach the next level. The season-long points winner will be fully exempt on the Korn Ferry Tour for the following season, with those finishing in the second-through-fifth positions earning conditional status. Players who finish in the Nos. 2-10 spots will also earn an exemption into the Final Stage of the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament, while Nos. 11-25 on the Order of Merit will earn an exemption into the Second Stage of the Qualifying Tournament.
