The Invitational was established in 1992 to allow for high level tournament golf to be played prior to our national provincial championships. The Glencoe Invitational is listed on the Golf Canada Order of Merit as well as the World Amateur Golf Order of Merit. The World Amateur Golf Ranking System ranks the top amateur golfers in the world on the basis of their average performance in counting events on a rolling cycle over the previous 52 weeks. The tournament took a three year hiatus during 2012 thru 2014 to restore our Robert Trent Jones II course, The Forest, to its former glory. The Invitational Committee and the Members of The Glencoe Golf & Country Club are excited to welcome back this premier event to Canada’s Golf Calendar.
The Glencoe Invitational field of players is typically made up those in the top 50 on the Golf Canada Order of Merit, Provincial Champions, Willingdon Cup players, Canada’s National team as well as players referred from other golf associations. Past tournaments have included players from New Zealand, USA, and Bermuda and to date, 57 former participants and champions are now playing on various professional tours. You may recognize our 2005 Champion, Graham DeLaet.
