The world-class Glen Arbour Golf Course in Halifax, Nova Scotia has been chosen to play host to the 2012 edition of the TELUS World Skins Game.
The 20th edition of this Canadian summer golf tradition is scheduled for July 29 - 31 and will feature five top PGA Tour professionals, who will be confirmed at a later date.
The first Skins Game was held in 1993 at Devil's Pulpit Golf Club in Caledon, Ontario, and during its 19-year history has seen some of the biggest names in professional golf compete at Canada's top golf destinations, including Jack Nicklaus, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples, Mike Weir and Greg Norman. This past year, Tour rookie Jhonattan Vegas walked off with top honours after pocketing five skins worth $140,000.
Since 2001, the TELUS World Skins Game has also raised more than $10 million for a wide variety of important causes across Canada.
Glen Arbour Golf Course is one of Atlantic Canada's premiere golf destinations, having played host to a number of prestigious golf events including the inaugural Wayne Gretzky and Friends Invitational in 2000 and the BMO Canadian Ladies Open in 2005.
