Golf in Aurora…

I had the honour to bring greetings and welcome Brooke Henderson, Lorie Kane and everyone from Canadian Pacific, the LPGA,  and Golf Canada to the Town of Aurora for the CP Women’s Open media day.

The Town of Aurora is thrilled to be hosting the 2019 CP Women’s Open; the first ever LPGA Tour event hosted in our town and the first one in the GTA after almost 20 years!

Taking place at the prestigious Magna Golf Club from August 19 to 25, this Championship tournament features the best of the best in women’s golf. More than 50,000 people are expected over the course of the week and you will definitely want to be one of them.

As many of you know, Aurora is quite the golf community. We are very lucky to have so many high-quality golf courses in and around our Town, one of course being Magna Golf Club.

This immaculate course will provide an excellent challenge for the world’s best women’s golfers and provide a scenic backdrop for players and fans. I know everyone will be ‘wowed’ by Magna’s hospitality experience and fantastic energy.

I would also like to take a moment to touch on Canadian Pacific’s charitable arm, CP Has Heart. As you know, there are many short and long-term economic benefits to welcoming large sports events into our town, such as increased tourism and raising our community’s profile. However, the absolute icing on the cake is CP’s dedication to investing in our local community with a donation of up to $250,000 for the Southlake Regional Health Centre.

This amazing donation will have a long and lasting impact on our community, allowing the hospital to enhance its paediatric cardiac care.

I invite you to come enjoy some world-class golf close to home and cheer on Canadian sensation Brooke Henderson as she defends her national title #WeAreAurora
