UPDATE ON THE 2020 CP WOMEN’S OPEN (MAY 28, 2020)

The LPGA Tour has announced that in a continued effort to minimize risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, it has suspended all events through July 18 and has revised the balance of the 2020 LPGA Tour schedule, which is expected to begin July 31-August 2 at the LPGA Drive On Championship.

The 2020 CP Women’s Open at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver remains on the revised LPGA Tour schedule, set for August 31 – September 6. Together, with our partners at CP and the LPGA Tour, Golf Canada will continue to monitor the recommendations and guidelines of government and health experts to assess any related impact to the event.

Golf Canada will provide updates including any onsite precautionary protocols or safety measures being implemented. The health and safety of our athletes, volunteers and everyone who supports the CP Women’s Open – and our community as a whole – will always come first.

In an effort to minimize the risk of COVID-19 and reduce athlete travel, the LPGA Tour is suspending all pre-tournament qualifying for the remainder of 2020, including the CP Women’s Open Qualifier which was scheduled for Monday, August 31st at Point Grey Golf & Country Club.
