Golf: A Great Way to Get Active
Education News

Golf: A Great Way to Get Active

Did you know that more Canadians participate in golf than any other sport? 5.7 million Canadian golfers play over 60 million rounds of golf annually. Golf is especially popular with middle-aged and older Canadians.

Canadian physical activity guidelines recommend adults over 18 should accumulate at least 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic physical activity per week in bouts of at least 10 minutes.

Many people assume golf is a leisure activity and that golfers do not reach a high enough level of intensity to be counted toward their weekly activity goals. However, although not as intense as some sports, a golfer who walks a 9 or 18 hole course expends enough energy to classify golf in the moderate intensity group, meeting the physical activity guidelines.

Walking 18 holes carrying or pushing your clubs takes around four hours, requires 11,000 to 17,000 steps, covers 4-8 miles and expends 500 to 2,400 calories. If you add in a few hills, take more strokes, cover more ground between shots or are a little less fit, the numbers are more likely to be in the higher ranges. Using a cart decreases the overall numbers by 50% but it’s still better than sitting at home.

First Tournament Opens Today
Tournament News

First Tournament Opens Today

We hope everyone is excited for the 2019 PGA of Alberta tournament season! Our first tournament opens for registration today at 10am which is the Henderson Lake GC Golf Supply House Series on May 6th. Be sure to read the below information so you are aware of all tournament registration policies for this season.

Registration Process
Members will now register for tournaments 28-days prior to the event date and not all at once for the entire season. The reason for changing the registration process is to reduce the amount of withdrawals we see leading up to events as well as minimize the number of waitlists.

Payment
Payment will now be required at the time of registration and members will still have the ability to withdraw 2-weeks before the event with no penalty. After the 2-week mark, a withdrawal penalty will be incurred. If a member withdraws after the draw has been posted (Thursday of the week prior to event), they will forfeit their entire entry fee.

Withdrawal Penalty
The withdrawal fee has been increased to $50 this year. This increase is to further discourage members from signing up for events they are unsure they will play in. Please note the Withdrawal Deadline date on the tournament page.

PGA of Alberta Buying Show Heading to the Calgary BMO Centre in 2019
Association News

PGA of Alberta Buying Show Heading to the Calgary BMO Centre in 2019

We are very excited to announce that the PGA of Alberta Buying Show will be heading South in 2019 to the BMO Centre in Calgary, Alberta. The dates of this years Buying Show will be October 22-24, 2019, one week after the Thanksgiving holiday.

After much consideration by the Board of Directors, the change in location from Edmonton to Calgary will benefit many of the stakeholders involved with the Show, which include:

  • Easy access to Calgary International Airport with increased flight options for attendees
  • Hotels & Restaurants within walking distance of the BMO Centre
  • Increased entertainment options available allowing for better networking opportunities
  • Transportation access to venue by Calgary’s C-Train transit system
  • Better accessibility for PGA of Canada Members in bordering provinces

The BMO Centre is the largest convention centre in Calgary and is a world-class facility located in the heart of the city. By moving the Show to this venue located on the Stampede Grounds, attendees will have better access to hotels, transportation, restaurants, entertainment, etc., all within walking distance from the venue, helping make for a better overall experience.

“The Buying Show has been very successful for a very long time at the current venue, but we’ve heard loud and clear from all participants that its time for change” said PGA of Alberta Member and Chairman of the Buying Show Committee Shawn Lavoie. “The BMO Centre in Calgary will offer everyone a greater experience on all fronts. The logistics for our partners will be vastly improved. The social aspect will also be a great step forward with the proximity of hotels and restaurants in the area. The BMO centre will be a great fit for years to come”.

Lastly, the annual PGA of Alberta Awards Banquet will be held at the BMO Centres Palomino Room during the week of the Buying Show. We look forward to recognising our Members and Industry Representatives for what will be a memorable night for everyone involved.
