About the course

Angus Glen Golf Club, celebrating its 20th anniversary with the official grand re-opening of the renovated South Course, has hosted the 2001 BMO Canadian Women's Open, 2002 Bell Canadian Open and the 2014 World Junior Girls Championship.

The $6 million renovation was conducted by the award-winning golf architectural firm MacKenzie & Ebert. The architects have advised on an impressive list of world class courses such as Turnberry, Royal St. Georges, Royal Lytham & St. Annes, and more.

Angus Glen's new south course is the perfect site to host the 2015 Pan Am Tournament. With its playable level of competitive difficulty, the convenient location in Markham has easy access to downtown Toronto. The clubhouse also features the first of its kind Nike-exclusive Pro Shop.
