Over 300 volunteers make this event possible every year. Your involvement as a volunteer will directly support our efforts in contributing and raising funds for important charitable initiatives in our community. Volunteer positions in scoring, admissions, marshalling and construction are just some of the ways you can get inside the ropes.
You can also get more directly involved in tournament play by becoming a Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada caddie for a weekend. Caddie positions are open to persons age 15 years and older and you must be able to carry a set of golf clubs. It’s the closest you’ll get to all the action.

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.
Since 2013, three 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 Golf Mentorship Foundation provides a unique and fun environment for children to learn the game of golf and its values.
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 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. At the end of the season the top players earn their way onto the Web.com Tour, advancing them one giant step towards their PGA TOUR dreams. It’s also your opportunity to see the future of the PGA TOUR up close.
