Bear Mountain For Champions Tour Return

Bear Mountain

The PGA Champions circuit won’t be making a third stop at Bear Mountain in 2018.

The senior tour’s 2018 schedule was released recently and does not include the Pacific Links Bear Mountain Championship, which had been held at the Victoria-area resort the past two Septembers.

The tournament’s demise should not come as a surprise. This year’s event, which was won by Jerry Kelly, was the only event on the PGA Tour Champions 2017 schedule that did not have TV coverage after the tournament sponsor failed to ante up for Golf Channel coverage.

The only Canadian stop remaining on the PGA Tour Champions schedule is the Shaw Charity Classic in Calgary. That event goes Aug. 31-Sept. 2 at Canyon Meadows Golf & Country Club.
