Whether it's sinking a clutch putt or helping a young person through a challenging time in their life – the Players Cup is driven to help people succeed. 100% of the net proceeds from the Players Cup supports the Play Through Foundation, which benefits inner city children’s initiatives in Winnipeg through our primary charitable partners. Over $500,000 has been given back to local charities since 2010 because of our great partners!

A Manitoba Tradition Since 1919


A Manitoba Tradition Since 1919


Our History

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.
