Golf Canada conducts a two stage qualifying procedure for the RBC Canadian Open.

Regional Qualifying Competitions: 18 holes stroke play with the low qualifier at each site receiving an exemption directly into the RBC Canadian Open field, provided a minimum of 100 competitors participate at each site. The top 15% of finishers, beyond the low qualifier, at each regional qualifying competition are eligible to compete at Final Qualifying.

Final Qualifying: Available to those exempt or who have qualified through regional qualifying. 18 holes stroke play, with a minimum of 4 spots directly into the RBC Canadian Open field.

Note: Golf Canada reserves the right to reduce or add to the number of qualifying spots available from regional qualifying competitions due to the quality or size of each field.


A specific date will be communicated at least two weeks prior to registration opening.  Any updates will be posted on this page.
