– Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“David Feherty’s One Man Show: uncensored, unhinged, and worth the price off admission. It really was stupendous!”

The Future Pros Program was created by the PGA of Manitoba to introduce the game of golf and its core values to children in our community who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity. Through instruction, mentorship, and access, its goal is to enhance the lives of children by teaching lifelong values like respect, integrity and determination through the game of golf. The Future Pros Program is funded 100% by the partners and initiatives of the PGA of Manitoba Foundation Inc.
Events like the Players Cup can’t happen without the dedicated commitment of businesses in our community. These partners are the reason we are able to put on a first class Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada event that gives back to local charities.
In 2013, four generous organizations believed in our vision of having a PGA TOUR family event in Winnipeg and became our Founding Partners. To them and all of our partners, we are truly grateful.
The Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada is part of the path to the PGA TOUR, where tomorrow’s PGA TOUR players begin their quest to reach the game’s highest level.

Official Volunteer Sponsor
The Players Cup first began as The Manitoba Open in 1919, one of the oldest golf tournaments in North America. Karl Keefer won that year and kicked off a Manitoba tradition that has lasted over 90 years. In 1998 it was renamed the MTS Classic and later the Free Press Manitoba Classic. In 2008 it became the Players Cup we all know today.
The Players Cup joined the newly formed Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada in 2013 and quickly became a premier event on the national circuit that is now the official first step to the PGA TOUR.
The Mackenzie Tour features some of the best up and coming golfers looking to take that step toward their dream of playing on golf’s greatest stage as they compete for their share of the Players Cup’s $175,000 purse. Many Mackenzie Tour champions have gone on to notable careers on the PGA TOUR including 2009 Players Cup Champion Graham DeLaet, Mike Weir, David Hearn, Tony Finau, Nick Taylor and Steve Stricker
The passion and commitment of our fans, volunteers, partners and players helped make the 2016 Players Cup at Niakwa Country Club a huge success on and off the course. Thank you for helping us provide an experience where the next generation learns to win. NiakwaCountryClub.ca
