Counting down to the TO2015 Pan Am Games

Ready, set…it’s the final countdown to the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games! The opening ceremonies will be held on Friday, July 10 to officially kick-off the Games.

Golf’s return to multi-sport games on the world stage is set to begin Tuesday, July 14 with a practice round at Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, Ont.  Angus Glen is no stranger to hosting major golf tournaments.  In 2001, it played host to both the Telus Skins Game and the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open before hosting the 2002 and 2007 RBC Canadian Opens.

After winning the bid to host this competition, Angus Glen’s South Course underwent major renovations in preparation for this monumental event.  What began as a bunker project quickly turned into a decision to make the course more sustainable in terms of water use and storage, as well as reconfiguring the property to reduce overall maintenance.

Fast facts about golf at the 2015 Pan Am Games:

  • The Pan Am field currently includes 31 women and 32 men.
  • There will be women’s individual, men’s individual and mixed team events played over a 72-hole stroke play format. Each round, teams will count their lowest scores from each gender and these scores will represent their team total.
