Le Blainvillier to Host the 2021 Mackenzie Investments Open

 

Montréal, Québec – October 26, 2020 – 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 Mackenzie Investments Open from July 26 to August 1, 2021.

 

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 partner with Le Blainvillier in 2021. We know the players will enjoy the golf course and the fantastic facilities and it should provide a formidable test," said Mackenzie Tour Executive Director Scott Pritchard.

 

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.

 

"Le Blainvillier is very proud to have been chosen to host the Mackenzie Investments Open in 2021. We look forward to welcoming these world-class players to our championship course and introducing them to our beautiful region," said Gary Lagden, General Manager of Le Blainvillier.

 

"Considering all the uncertainties and changes brought about by the 2020 pandemic, Golf Québec is particularly fortunate that the Blainvillier has agreed to postpone its contribution to the event until 2021. It is an honour to offer the province's best players the opportunity to participate in such a prestigious tournament”, 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 2021 Mackenzie Investments Open will be comprised of a field of 156 players. This is one of the tournaments that will allow players on the Mackenzie Tour - PGA TOUR Canada to earn status on the Korn Ferry Tour. The next PGA TOUR stars from around the world will compete for a $200,000 purse and the coveted Mackenzie Investments Open trophy. More information will be announced at a later date.
