The Vancouver Open is returning home and everyone seems delighted about that.
Vancouver Golf Tour commissioner Fraser Mullholland is pleased to see his flagship tournament return to the three City of Vancouver courses. And the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation is also happy to have the tournament back at its Fraserview, Langara and McCleery courses.
“The Vancouver Open should be in Vancouver, right,” says Joan Probert, the park board’s supervisor of commercial operations.
No argument there, but for the last four years the Vancouver Open has not been held in Vancouver. The VGT and park board went their separate ways after the 2013 event, but both sides certainly sounded happy to be partners once again at a media event earlier this week at Langara to promote the tournament.
