Anticipation mounting for 2024 CPKC Women’s Open in Calgary

Although the 2024 CPKC Women’s Open doesn’t tee off until late July, planning is in full force for the LPGA event, heading back to Calgary for a fourth time.

It does mark inaugural hosting duties for Earl Grey Golf Club in southwest Calgary — a perfect setting with the downtown skyline when looking northeast and the Rockies to the west, according to tournament director Ryan Paul.

“It’s a lovely course, and it’s a great location with a nice view of the city,” he explained of the historic club hosting the Canadian Women’s Open, which features an 18-hole championship course and a nine-hole Par 3.

“The layout is perfect for spectators since it’s an easy walk. There’s also tons of space for us to build our infrastructure.

“Last year [in Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver], we had about 80,000 square feet of builds out on the golf course, and we’re looking to extend that for this year.”

The tournament, the only Canadian stop on the LPGA Tour, has just released select tickets, which could be a great Christmas gift for the golf lover in your life.

“These are your season tickets or weekly options,” Paul said. “There’s a unique ticket, any day option, which gives you the flexibility to the course any day that you want. Once we get into 2024, we’ll release all of our tickets, which are our day-specific ones. But, these are the best deals to see the world’s best all week.”

Youngsters under 12 get in for free, as the Canadian Women’s Open works to grow the game.

“It’s one that we’ve done as long as I can remember,” the tournament director offered. “To see those rope lines surrounding Brooke Henderson with young boys and girls is awesome. That’s what it’s all about — inspire the next generation and get those next Brooke Henderson and Nick Taylors coming up.”

The Canadian Women’s Open has won the LPGA Tour’s Tournament of the Year for 2022 and 2023.
