Glen Abbey gets 2008 CanOpen

In one of the worst kept secrets in golf, the RCGA and ClubLink announced today that Glen Abbey will get the 2008 Canadian Open. I’ve written about this a lot and it’ll be intriguing to see who shows up in 2008, especially after the tournament goes through Angus Glen North and Glen Abbey, two courses that aren’t widely liked by the players

“We are delighted to return the Canadian Open to the legendary Glen Abbey, one of the most spectator-friendly golf courses in the world. Our national championship is steeped in tradition and Glen Abbey has been the stage for many memorable moments in Canadian Open lore.” said Stephen Ross, RCGA Executive Director.
