What's New in Montréal Sporting event

Montréal is primed to host the 2024 Presidents Cup, with tickets selling fast for the prestigious event’s celebratory 15th edition. Sports are a part of the Montréal’s DNA, and golf, specifically, has been beloved for over a century: since the 1873 founding of the Royal Montréal Golf Club, the oldest in North America. The Royal Montréal will be only the second non-American club to ever host the Presidents Cup more than once. We’re on the verge of a historic moment indeed.

A second instalment of greatness

The last time Montréal was honoured with the privilege of hosting the Presidents Cup was the truly memorable 2007 tournament. It was held at Royal Montréal over four temperate September days, and although four-time captain Jack Nicklaus led the United States to victory over three-time captain Gary Player and the International Team by a score of 19 ½ — 14, it remains a highlight of Canadian golf history as Mike Weir beat then-world No. 1 Tiger Woods in a Sunday singles match.

As Weir told the CBC, he remembers the 2007 tournament fondly: “The turnout, the crowds, were huge and very into it. I expect 2024 will be the same.”

He is primed and ready to return to the course among the world’s greatest golf talents gathering in Montréal, taking over the Royal Montréal once more from September 24 to 29, 2024.

Montréal is a hole in one

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan is excited to play the Royal Montréal course: “[It’s] the 151st year of the course, which is truly remarkable,” he told the CBC. “A golf course that has withstood and stood up to the test of time. It’s a true gem.”

The Royal Montréal is only one of Montréal’s excellent courses, both on the island of Montréal and in the surrounding areas. There are many notable courses within an hour’s drive and no shortage of quality links to choose from for avid golfers and beginners alike.
