Today, The PGA of Canada announced that RBC Avion Visa is now the Official Credit Card of the 2021 RBC PGA Scramble, the largest amateur team championship in Canada. National events will take place across 140 golf facilities around the country, culminating with the Regional Finals and a bucket-list National Championship in early October.

When RBC PGA Scramble participants use their RBC Avion Visa credit card to register their team, they will get access to unique golf benefits, including: waived registration fees, exclusive gear, perks with Team RBC golfers, and more!

This offering is part of The Avion Collection, a growing suite of benefits, curated travel inspiration, exclusive value, insider tips and unique experiences – available just for Avioners.

“The PGA of Canada’s partnership with RBC has been everything we could ask for and together we have worked to grow the RBC PGA Scramble into what it is today,” said Kevin Thistle, PGA of Canada CEO. “To add RBC Avion Visa as our Official Credit Card now is the next evolution of that and we look forward to welcoming Avioners to the program.”

RBC has been the title sponsor of the PGA Scramble since 2017, and the event has grown to include over 150 local and regional qualifiers across Canada with over 10,000 participants in each of the past two years.

“We value our partnership with the PGA of Canada and knowing how important golf is to many of our Avioners, this was a natural fit,” said Alan Depencier, Chief Marketing Officer, RBC. “The Avion Collection provides our loyal Avion cardholders with exclusive offers and experiences and this year’s Scramble is one of the many ways that we’re delivering the kind value and exclusivity that our Avioners have come to expect.”

COVID-19 protocols will be in place at each qualifier in accordance with provincial health authority guidelines. For more information, visit:
