Due to ongoing travel/border restrictions and government quarantine requirements as part of the COVID-19 pandemic, the LPGA Tour and Golf Canada announced today that the CP Women’s Open, scheduled for Sept. 3-6, will not take place in 2020.

It will return to the LPGA Tour schedule on Aug. 26-29, 2021, with the competition taking place at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, which was set to host the 2020 tournament.

“The CP Women’s Open is truly a world-class event and a favorite stop for all of us at the LPGA Tour,” said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan. “I understand this was a tough decision for everyone involved, but given the restrictions faced, there was simply nothing else that could be done that would have enabled us to run the event in 2020. It is disappointing to miss Canada’s national championship and I know I speak for all LPGA Tour players and staff when I say we look forward to being back in Vancouver next year.”
