PGA Tour Americas to tee off at Mactaquac
CENTRAL YORK (GNB) – PGA Tour Americas will be making a tournament stop at Mactaquac Provincial Park in July of 2024. It is one of two new stops added to the tour, with the other one being in Brazil.
“The Mactaquac golf course has been getting attention on the national scale, and now it will be a destination for golfers across the globe,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace. “Hosting events of this calibre showcases New Brunswick as a vacation and sport destination and boosts our economy and supports our industry partners.”
The PGA announced in the spring that PGA Tour Latinoamerica and PGA Tour Canada would merge to form PGA Tour Americas.
“Golf New Brunswick is excited to collaborate with the City of Fredericton, New Brunswick Tourism and Mactaquac,” said Brianna McQuillan, executive director of Golf New Brunswick. “We believe this is an amazing opportunity to develop golf further in New Brunswick. We look forward to involving our members and junior golfers for an experience like no other.”
“The Fredericton capital region is chock full of super golfing opportunities. And Mactaquac is one of our best courses,” said Fredericton Capital Region Tourism manager Stacey Russell. “Showcasing it on PGA Tour Americas will build awareness and shine a light on our spectacular, beautiful region.”
