Montreal QC- Two professional golf tours in Canada are excited to announce a strategic merger. The East Coast Pro Tour (ECPT), based in Montreal QC, and the Great Lakes Tour (GLT), based in Hamilton ON have agreed upon terms to merge schedules and events under one umbrella effective immediately.
This announcement comes with much excitement for competitive golf in Canada. The new tournament schedule will offer professional golfers and elite amateurs a full set of events across Ontario, Quebec and even the USA and feature one season long point list. Additionally, each event in 2023 will feature a minimum purse amount of $25,000 and an average first prize of $7,500.
The Merger will ultimately see all events on both tours in Ontario and Quebec fall under the brand and image of the ECPT. The GLT and ECPT will share resources and networks that will ultimately make the new ECPT an industry leader in the market of developmental golf in Canada...
