The 2018 CP Women’s Open is coming to Regina. The Wascana Country Club will play host to the event next August.

“We are very excited to bring the CP Women’s Open to Regina,” Tournament Director Brend McLaughlin said in a written release. “Saskatchewan is a tremendous golf community and we are confident Wascana Country Club will be a fitting test to challenge the world’s best women’s golfers.”

The CP Women’s Open welcomes the top players on the LPGA and features a total purse of $2.25 million USD, one of the largest purses on the tour.

The club earned the opportunity to host the event after submitting a bid back in 2014.

“We are delighted to have been chosen to host the prestigious 2018 CP Women’s Open as this will be a chance for us to show the world what the City of Regina has to offer.” Mayor Michael Fougere said in a release.

The tournament will take place from Aug. 20-26, 2018. Information on tickets and volunteer opportunities can be found online.
