The Mandarin Tour Secures Sponsor Exemption into The Great Waterway Classic.
Last year we were the first professional golf tour in Canada to grant a free Web.com Tour sponsor exemption. Winner Lucas Kim went on to make the cut in the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, MO (Results) and gained valuable experience as a young professional golfer trying to rise through the ranks.
‘This is an extremely exciting time for us and our players” CEO Nic Mazze expressed after finalizing the 3 year sponsorship agreement with The Great Waterway Classic.
“We are pleased to partner with the Mandarin Tour” said Tournament Director Brad Parkins. “The level of play on the Mandarin Tour is extremely competitive and offering this opportunity to a young player not already exempt into the event could change their golfing fortunes.”
Mandarin Tour COO Bryan DeCorso “Professional golf’s future stars will be playing The Great Waterway Classic and we are excited that one of our members will have a chance to test their game against some of the best up and coming players in Canada,” Said DeCorso. “By playing in The Great Waterway Classic I am confident one of our member’s will gain the experience necessary to strengthen their game in preparation for the next level.”

‘The Seaforth Country Classic began in 2008 when it hosted the first of its four Canadian Tour (PGA Tour Canada) events. Following these four successful events with the Canadian Tour it was decided to host an ‘open’ event to continue to support aspiring golfers . The 2015 Seaforth Country Classic Open will take place the same week as the PGA Tour's Canadian Open July 22nd-25th, 2015. Essentially we are hosting a tournament for players who are not eligible to play in the Canadian Open. Our tournament allows male and female professionals as well as elite amateurs to participate. The tournament will be a three day competition with a ‘cut’ after the second day. We will host a Pro Am on the Wednesday prior to play.
The Seaforth Country Classic Open continues to support medical charities in our community. We
have raised over $80,000.00 since inception. In 2014 we were able to
raise over $8300.00 for the Canadian Diabetes Association.’
