After years of planning, the Niagara 2022 Host Society is ready to welcome the country to Niagara for the largest multi-sport and cultural event in Canada.

Featuring 18 sports and over 250 events, including a pair of festivals in Niagara Place and the 13 For 13 Cultural Festival, the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games will host approximately 5,000 up-and-coming Canadian athletes, coaches, and support staff in the Niagara Region from August 6th until August 21 for the 28th edition of the Canada Games.

These Games mark just the third occasion in the event’s 55-year history that they have been held in the province of Ontario and the first time in 21 years.

One of the sports being contested is of course, golf, being played at the Legends on The Niagara featuring two layouts designed by renowned golf architects Douglas Carrick (The Battlefield course) and Thomas McBroom (Ussher’s Creek).

British Columbia is sending a team of very skilled players with Surrey's Lauren Kim and Tina Jiang of Richmond representing the girls, while Kelowna's Cooper Humphreys and Coquitlam's Ethan Posthumus represent the boys. 

The golf competition will be played from August 17th -20th with individual female, male & team categories.
