Vancouver, BC- The only fall championship that was still scheduled has now been cancelled. The Canada West university sport conference has cancelled the 2020 Golf Championships which were scheduled for Oct. 2-4 in Kelowna, BC due to travel restrictions.
ViaSport BC, the governing body of sport in the province set out guidelines that did not allow for student-athletes to travel from across BC, Alberta and Manitoba. With the tournament scheduled in two weeks and these restrictions unlikely to ease, Canada West’s board of directors unanimously decided to cancel the event.
There has been no word on whether the 36-hole championship tournament will be re-awarded to Kelowna in 2021 or the future.
Canada West also announced that they are set to announce the second class of inductees to the conference’s sport Hall of Fame. Inductions begin Sept. 23, when the first inductee of the 2020-21 class in unveiled. Inductions will continue to be announced weekly until early December.
