2016 Syncrude Boreal Open Cancelled

The Mackenzie Tour – PGA TOUR Canada and Linx Marketing has announced the cancellation of the 2016 Syncrude Boreal Open presented by AECON due to effects on the Fort McMurray community following wildfires this spring.

 “Having consulted with community leaders and sponsors, we felt it would be inappropriate to play the event this year as the Fort McMurray community embarks on recovering from this spring’s wildfires,” said Mackenzie Tour President Jeff Monday. “We wish the very best to everyone in Fort McMurray as the community makes its recovery.”

“Though we were hopeful for the possibility of the conducting the event in Fort McMurray, we did not feel it would be the right thing to do to hold the golf tournament while the city is focusing on recovery efforts,” said Tim Garbutt, Executive Director of the Syncrude Boreal Open presented by AECON and the ATB Financial Classic.
