Month: June 2020


After months of anticipation, the RBC PGA Scramble presented by The Lincoln Motor Company is nearly underway, with the first of 120+ local qualifying events kicking off this weekend.

We are thrilled to share that even with a delayed start to the season, there are already 1,100 players (and counting) registered and eager to participate in Canada's greatest series of golf events.

New updates for the upcoming season include:


  • Enhanced score-vetting system to provide a more accurate representation of scoring ability
  • Built-in limits on how much an index can increase in short periods of time
  • New procedure to determine playing handicaps and adjustments for calculating new scores


  • FULL Regional Final fields - each regional final will have 18 teams. If there are less than 18 teams that qualify through local qualifiers, an alternate list will be used based on score differentials from each local qualifier within that region
  • Guaranteed spot for an ALL-FEMALE team in each Regional Final (for those that competed in a local qualifier). If an all-female team does not qualify through their local qualifier, the qualifying spot will go to the team with the lowest differential from all local qualifiers in that region
  • To see the list of Regional Final venues confirmed for 2020, CLICK HERE.


  • All events will follow a tee-time format to avoid group gatherings
  • Online registration and scoring will be used to minimize touchpoints
  • Players are asked to maintain physical distancing of 6+ feet at all times, refrain from touching or sharing equipment and follow the protocols set forth by their respective provincial government and host facility. Safety is a shared responsibility.
  • See Responsible Golf Guidelines here.


  • Titleist & FootJoy joined as new partners this year and will be enhancing the prizing experience for participants throughout the competition
  • GOLFTV has returned as a supporting partner of the program and will once again be offering participants complimentary access to world-class live and on-demand golf content with registration.


  • Females yardages will now be set to 86-88% of the yardage used for male players (previously 90%)


In support of Canadian healthcare workers fighting COVID-19, we have added a charitable donation option to The Frontline Fund within the registration form. 100% of the money raised will go toward this charity.

The team at the RBC PGA Scramble presented by The Lincoln Motor Company is hard at work to deliver another year of exciting golf events across the country.

Our plan is still to provide the golf trip of a lifetime to Cabot Cape Breton for teams that qualify beyond the first two stages of the competition, however, there is a possibility that this could be impacted by ongoing COVID-19 developments. With the safety and well being of participants guiding our decision-making process, we wanted to provide players with a transparent plan should the National Final be impacted in any way. 

Plan A: The National Final goes ahead as planned at Cabot Cape Breton, Oct. 4-6, 2020.

Plan B: The National Final goes ahead but with a reduced field to accommodate provincial restrictions on group gatherings.

Plan C: If we are unable to host the National Final at Cabot Cape Breton due to COVID-19 restrictions, players can anticipate an enhanced Regional Final experience, which would include:

  • A variety of gifting and prizes from new sponsors Titleist & FootJoy
  • A set of Titleist irons for each person on the winning team at every Regional Final

Should we have to resort to Plan C, one overall winning team would be determined by comparing score differentials across each Regional Final, with the champions taking home:

  • A full set of Titleist clubs and bag for each player (total approx. value $8,000)
  • 2021 RBC Canadian Open VIP Experience (total approx. value $4,000)

Please note: A decision as to whether the National Final will proceed as planned will be announced no later than the first week of August. Backup plans are subject to change. 

We appreciate your ongoing understanding and flexibility as we navigate the 'new normal' together. While things may look a little different this year, we are excited to provide a platform for camaraderie, competition and fun!
