2020 Royal LePage Provincial Championships Cancelled
Golf NL, in consultation with its partners have decided to cancel the 2020 Royal LePage Provincial Amateur and Junior Championships as well as the 2020 Tely Junior Tour.
Taking into consideration the health and well-being of our athletes, staff, volunteers, host club, partners and other stakeholders, the Board of Directors of Golf NL unanimously decided to cancel these competitions.
The decision to cancel these events was not taken lightly, but given the present restrictions regarding competitions, evaluation of the risk associated with hosting the events, ability to migrate and manage these risks and the ability to host “first class” competitions we believe this is the best course of action. The safety and well-being of our championships competitors, tournament staff and volunteers along with our host site members and staff are the main priority for Golf NL.
While golf leads itself to accommodate social distancing, their are many other factors to take into consideration when reviewing our organization’s ability to safety host activities and events. It is our intent to work with the 2020 host venues to reschedule the competitions for 2021 and coordinate first class competitions in conjunction with our partners.
We share in the disappointment and thank all for their understanding during this unprecedented time.
Stay safe and take this summer to truly enjoy this great game.
