The fourth annual Drive for Change golf tournament will take place at the famous Jack Nicklaus-designed Glen Abbey Golf Club, which has hosted the Canadian Open 28 times! The event features a hot breakfast, lunch, golfing competitions, and great raffle prizes. With attendee growth in its first three years, we expect this year’s event to sell out.
About the Glen Abbey Golf Club
Designed by legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, Glen Abbey has hosted the RBC Canadian Open, a PGA Tour event and Canada's National Open Championship, 28 times.
A distinguishing feature of the Glen Abbey course are the "Valley Holes", numbered 11 through 15. On number 11, a par 4, players tee off a cliff to a fairway that is approximately 60 feet below on the valley floor. The second shot must clear Sixteen Mile Creek to the green. Holes 12, 13 and 14 all use Sixteen Mile Creek as a hazard of one form or another. Number 15 is a short par 3 with a sharply-sloping green, after which players climb out of the valley to the 16th hole.
The property is also home to the Academies of ClubLink, the headquarters of Golf Canada, the Canadian Golf Museum and Hall of Fame, and the TaylorMade Performance Lab Prizes. The course is Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf-certified.
