2025 RBCCO Venue Announcement

Renovated North Course championship layout to challenge the stars of the PGA TOUR for the historic 114th playing of Canada’s National Men’s Open Golf Championship

2025 championship along with spectacular clubhouse and facility enhancements represents the culmination of a longtime dream by the Humeniuk Family to transform TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley into a signature destination for Canadian Golf

May 21, 2024 – Canada’s National Men’s Open Golf Championship is set to write a new exciting chapter as TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley in Caledon, Ont. will host the RBC Canadian Open in 2025.

Golf Canada in partnership with the PGA TOUR announced that the recently renovated 7,445-yard North Course at TPC Toronto will challenge the stars of the PGA TOUR in 2025.

With the announcement, TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley will become the 38th golf course in the 121-year history of the event (and only the eighth since 1977) to host Canada’s National Men’s Open Golf Championship.

“I am extremely proud to see the vision of the Humeniuk Family for TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley become a reality in accepting our invitation to host Canada’s National Open Championship in 2025,” said Golf Canada CEO Laurence Applebaum. “This incredible property with its spectacular clubhouse and facilities will deliver an outstanding and dramatic competition supported by an operational capacity befitting a world-class championship. This is a special and deserving moment for TPC Toronto in stepping onto the global golf stage in hosting the 114th playing of our National Open Championship.”  

In 2023, the Doug Carrick-designed North Course located 40 minutes from Toronto Pearson International Airport, underwent a major golf course renovation under the guidance of renowned architect Ian Andrew with consultation from the PGA TOUR for the venue to host large-scale, global championship level competition.

Renovations to the publicly accessible North Course— ranked 21st among Canadian public courses by SCOREGolf prior to renovation —were focused on transforming the layout into a National Open Championship venue, enhancing the course’s dramatic green complexes and positioning bunkers and other hazards strategically to challenge elite players.

The North Course will play to its new championship par of 70 for the RBC Canadian Open, with holes eight and thirteen converted to par-4s. The 585-yard par-5 18th hole, which saw a new tee deck, a signature tree and short grass runoff area in front of the green introduced as part of the renovation, will play as a dramatic risk-reward final hole.

Collaboration over the past six years with the TPC Network has allowed TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley to gain immersive experience and key understandings from other PGA TOUR venues about custom-tailoring its world-class golf course and facilities for top-level championship competition. 

The announcement to host the 2025 edition of Canada’s National Open Championship represents a culmination of a longtime dream by the Humeniuk family to build an outstanding golf destination at Osprey Valley that could host Canada’s National Open Championships – a longtime vision coming to fruition with a championship venue and world-class facilities built for this signature moment.

“This is a momentous occasion for Osprey Valley and represents a major step in our ongoing transformation as a facility, along with the culmination of many years of hard work, planning and preparation by our team,” said Osprey Valley President Chris Humeniuk. “We have long envisioned that Osprey Valley would become one of Canada’s greatest golf destinations, and becoming the host venue for our country’s national championship is a tremendous component of that vision becoming a reality.”

The new featured amenities at TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley – a publicly accessible 54-hole facility – include a 60,000-sqft. modern classic clubhouse overlooking the 18th hole of the renovated North Course. New amenities for TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley – with its three top-ranked golf courses on the property (North / Hoot / Heathlands) – also include the flagship restaurant Two Brothers, VIP Suites and event space, plus a second clubhouse on the Heathlands course and 17 multi-unit cabins for stay-and-play trips currently under construction.

TPC Toronto has hosted high-level professional golf for a number of years including US Open and RBC Canadian Open Qualifiers. Later this season, TPC Toronto will host the 2024 ORORO PGA Women’s Championship of Canada on its Heathlands course, while the North course will host PGA TOUR Americas’ season-ending Fortinet Cup Championship, part of a tradition of hosting PGA TOUR Americas events since 2018 —experiences that that have provided TPC Toronto’s management, turf and hospitality teams with relevant experiences to deliver a premium championship event experience.

In 2022, Osprey Valley and Golf Canada announced a major partnership and bold vision to build a new Home for Canadian Golf on the property of TPC Toronto as Osprey Valley, including Golf Canada’s national headquarters, the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame, national headquarters for First Tee – Canada and a 30,000-sq.ft community accessible 18-hole putting course, expected to be completed in 2025.  

Golf Ontario and the Club Management Association of Canada (CMAC) have committed to having corporate presence at the headquarters, collaborating with Golf Canada to embrace the golf community and develop a dynamic home campus for Canadian golf.

“The Town of Caledon is delighted TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley in Caledon, Ont. will host the RBC Canadian Open in 2025,” said Town of Caledon Mayor Annette Groves. “Caledon is the perfect setting for this national tournament that brings many visitors to Caledon. We are excited people will experience our Town’s beautiful landscapes, local businesses and venues.”

Information about corporate hospitality and volunteer opportunities for 2025 will be announced in the coming weeks.
