MONDAY PRO-AM – RBC CANADIAN OPEN

Guest foursomes are treated to round of golf with a professional PGA Tour golfer, Canadian sports hero or celebrity, pre-round golf clinic on the range and exciting surprise and delights throughout the day. Last year’s Pro-Am featured Team RBC players Nick Taylor, David Hearn, and Adam Hadwin along with Canadian golf legend Mike Weir and hockey heros Nick Kypreos and Rick Vaive.
In 2018, the Foundation was named the official charity for the tournament held at Glen Abbey Golf Club. In total, $335,000 was raised during tournament week from the Monday Pro-Am, 50/50 draw and RBC Birdies for Charity.

JEAN C. MONTY AND HÉLÈNE DESMARAIS CUPS
2018 marked the inaugural year for the Jean C. Monty Cup and Hélène Desmarais Cup, an annual competition held at Memphrémagog Golf Club with the purpose of supporting top golfers in Québec. The exclusive event reflects the Monty and Desmarais’ lifelong enthusiasm for the sport and their commitment to support the province’s most promising young athletes.
The Jean C. Monty Cup (for men) and the Hélène Desmarais Cup (for women) features the top five pros and top five amateurs from the province paired together in two-person teams. Amateur players are selected from the Golf Canada Order of Merit, with priority for professionals given to Team Canada Young Pro Squad members from Québec. In addition to promoting camaraderie and competition among the athletes, each cup conducted in partnership with the Golf Canada Foundation, holds a purse of $40,000.
It truly is an exciting time watching Canadian golfers throughout the world. The Golf Canada Foundation created this event to both celebrate and accelerate their performance, by raising funds to help players succeed and to inspire the next generation of players in grassroots programs.
The inaugural Trustee Cup was hosted by Mr. Jean C. Monty at the Memphrémagog Golf Club in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. At that time, our vision was to take the Trustee Cup to some of Canada’s best golf memberships from coast to coast. The inaugural event raised over $450,000 for youth golf programs.
In 2018, the second annual event at the Calgary Golf & Country Club was co-hosted by our honorees, Brad Shaw and Clay Riddell, who have done tremendous work in golf philanthropy through the Shaw Charity Classic. This event brought together influential stakeholders in golf from across the nation and raises funds for our high-performance team and raised over $480,000.
