Trestle Creek Golf Resort to Host 2024 Seniors & Ladies’ Championship

Trestle Creek Golf Resort will play host to its first ever PGA of Alberta event when it welcomes the Seniors and Ladies’ Championship presented by Schooley Mitchell, August 26-27, 2024.

Located 45 minutes west of Edmonton, Trestle Creek Golf Resort will offer a spectacular 18-hole championship test. Designed by Brad Dupuis, who has also built courses for Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf, Peter Dye and Von Hagge Design throughout the world over the last four decades, is sure to offer a fun competition for Alberta’s top Seniors and Ladies’.

“We are super excited to be hosting the PGA of Alberta Seniors and Ladies’ Championship,” said Art New, who is entering his second year as the Head Golf Professional at Trestle Creek Golf Resort. “This layout, is so much fun to play and has some of the most challenging greens in the province!"

“Trestle Creek is not about your good shots, but it is definitely about where you miss! It’ll be fun to watch some of the best seasoned professionals taking this challenge on.”

The Seniors and Ladies’ Championship is unique event that consists of two separate tournaments held in conjunction with each other. Gina Nelson and Larry Petryk, who emerged victorious in 2023, are sure to be on everyone’s radar as we inch closer to the 2024 Championship.

"I’m looking forward to defending this year’s PGA of Alberta Seniors Championship at Trestle Creek Golf Resort,” said Petryk, who captured the 2023 title following a three-hole playoff at Silver Springs Golf and Country Club.

“This will be an excellent venue for this tournament, and it will provide a significant challenge. The field always includes a tremendous history of players with numerous accomplishments both on and off the course.  I’m very thankful for the privilege to participate and hopefully can find some similar success once again.”

Gina Nelson captured her third Ladies’ title in 2023 after winning back-to-back championships in 2020 and 2021.

“I am excited to get to try and defend my Ladies’ Championship title this summer on a fun and challenging venue that is sure to be a great test for a Championship,” added Nelson. “I’m thankful to Art New and his team for hosting this event, it is definitely something to look forward to this season.”

A full 2024 tournament schedule will be released on March 4.
