History of the Tournament

First held in 1981 and now known as the Bayview Place Cardtronics Open, it is the longest running Professional Golf Tour Event in Canada. In 1981 to 2008 the Open was played on a rotational basis on 3 outstanding golf courses. However in 2009 the Victoria Open Golf Society agreed to a contract with Uplands Golf Club that would provide host playing rights thru to 2013. The Society in October 2013 negotiated a contract with the Uplands Golf Club to see the Bayview Place Cardtronics Open continue to be played there thru to 2016 and again has agreed to a contract in 2017 to run thru 2018.

The week long Bayview Place Cardtronics Open is a Major Event on the Victoria and Vancouver Island Sports calendar. The Open is a Major contributor to the Capital Regions Business and Tourism Sectors. It provides a showcase of golf in Victoria and supports amateur golf as well as Youth golf. The Open also enjoys the incredible support of all the local media. In addition, the Open is renowned for having the finest volunteers who are dedicated to making the Open the very best in Canada.
