Crown Isle to host PGA Tour Canada Q school event

Courtenay golf course one of three chosen; other two are in the United States

Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community will host one of three PGA Tour Canada qualifying schools to determine who will have playing status in 2014.

The Courtenay golf course will host the final event from May 5-9. The other two events will be held at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont, Calif. (April 7-11) and Reunion Resort and Club in Kissimmee, Fla. (April 14-18).

The top 18 players at each site will earn exempt status for the 2014 season while players finishing 19th through 40th plus ties will earn conditional status.

“With these three qualifying sites, the access and opportunity for players to earn status on PGA Tour Canada has greatly increased,” said PGA Tour Canada president Jeff Monday. “These qualifying tournaments should be extremely competitive and will enhance the level of competition in our second season. We look forward to seeing the next generation of players to make an impact on this Tour.”

British Columbia will play host to PGA Tour Canada qualifying school for the next two years with Morningstar Golf Club in Parksville taking over from Crown Isle in 2015.

Oak Valley, a 7,003-yard layout designed by Lee Schmidt, has hosted qualifying school for the PGA Tour while the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Reunion Resort and Club, a 6,916-yard Jack Nicklaus design, will host qualifying the following week in Kissimmee, just outside Orlando.

The spring’s final qualifying tournament will take place at Crown Isle Resort and Golf Community in Courtenay, a 7,025-yard Graham Cooke designed course located just minutes from Comox Valley Airport.
