OAKVILLE, Ont. - The RBC Canadian Open will return to Glen Abbey Golf Club next year, marking the 27th time that the national open championship will be played at the Oakville, Ont., course.
Brandt Snedeker was victorious when the tournament was last held at Glen Abbey in 2013.
"Glen Abbey has challenged the world's best on 26 occasions and played host to many of the most memorable finishes in Canadian Open history, including Brandt Snedeker's exciting victory last summer," Golf Canada chief executive officer Scott Simmons said Thursday in a release. "The Abbey and Canada's national open golf championship share a special connection and we are pleased to continue that legacy in 2015."
The PGA Tour event will be played July 23-26, 2015. This year's tournament is set for July 24-27 at The Royal Montreal Golf Club in Ile-Bizard, Que.
Glen Abbey hosted 22 Canadian Open tournaments between 1977 and 2000, as well as 2004, 2008, 2009 and 2013.
