From Friday to Sunday of September Long Weekend, round up the family and check out the Shaw Charity Classic!
The golf tournament is a stop on the PGA Champions Tour, host to golf superstars including Tom Watson, Stephen Ames, and John Daly. In total, there are 6 World Golf Hall of Fame inductees and 15 major championship winners participating, with a total 351 PGA Tour tournaments won between the entire field.
If you can, please wear golf attire or anything business casual, like khakis and a collared shirt. If this isn’t possible, nobody will sweat it. Golf events don’t have a dress code like golf courses do – make sure your footwear is comfortable, as there is a fair amount of walking involved!
#ShawClassic – Player Profile: @jesperparnevik became a professional golfer in 1986, but since then he has also taken his shot as an actor, reality star, social media maven and even has a famous pop-star daughter! ✨ Not to mention, Parnevik is also known for his notable fashion choices…talk about multitalented. ⛳️📺 His reality show is focused on his life as a golfer in Florida, so get your tickets for the #ShawClassic to get front row seats for his life as a golfer in Calgary.

Outside of the action on the green, there are many activities for spectators both young and old to take part in. For the whole family, there are photo booths, hitting nets, lawn games from Okanagan Spring, and Cowboys and Stingray Music will be hosting a Charity Ball Drop. The Telesat FunZone will be a great way to keep the kids entertained if they need to take a break from watching the tournament. Specifically for the adults, there will be beer and wine sampling from Okanagan Spring and Sandhill Wine in the beer gardens.
After watching the legends tee it up all day, we know you're going to be inspired to grab a club and work on your game! Come take part in the Junior Clinic presented by MEG Energy on Friday, Sept. 2 @ 3:30pm at the Canyon Meadows upper driving range. After a lesson from the pros (and 30+ years of practice) you'll blow everyone out of the water when you join the @pgatourchampions and make your debut back here at the Shaw Charity Classic. ⛳😎 Full details at: [shawcharityclassic.com/junior-events.php]
