PGA Tour Americas to tee off in N.B. in 2024

One of the world’s most famous golf tournaments will make a stop in New Brunswick next year.

PGA Tour Americas will host one of two new tournament stops at Mactaquac Provincial Park in July of 2024.

The other one is in Brazil.

Tourism Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace said the Mactaquac golf course has already been getting national attention — and now the world.

“Hosting events of this calibre showcases New Brunswick as a vacation and sport destination and boosts our economy and supports our industry partners,” she said in a news release.

The PGA announced in the spring that PGA Tour Latinoamerica and PGA Tour Canada would merge to form PGA Tour Americas.

Golf New Brunswick is collaborating with the City of Fredericton, New Brunswick Tourism and Mactaquac to further develop the sport locally.

“The Fredericton capital region is chock full of super golfing opportunities. And Mactaquac is one of our best courses,” said Fredericton Capital Region Tourism manager Stacey Russell.

“Showcasing it on PGA Tour Americas will build awareness and shine a light on our spectacular, beautiful region.”
