About

The RBC PGA Scramble is a national series of events taking place at more than 140 golf facilities around the country in 2021, culminating with Regional Finals and the RBC PGA Scramble National Championship in October.

The series of events expects to draw more than ten thousand amateur golfers—who will form their own team of four players— from across the country. Teams will look to make it through local qualifying with the ultimate goal of playing in a Regional and hopefully National Championship in October with a PGA of Canada professional playing on their team at some of Canada’s finest golf courses.


EVENT STRUCTURE

Over 140 local qualifiers will be held throughout the year across Canada, with winners progressing to Regional Finals held at some of Canada’s finest golf courses.

Each team at the Regional Final teams up with the PGA of Canada Professional from their qualifying site with the winners progressing to the RBC PGA Scramble National Championship.

The Championship is the golfing experience of a lifetime, with three days of golf, social activities, a gala/awards event, and the opportunity to play with a PGA of Canada Professional.
