Northern Bear Golf Club to host 2024 ATB Classic

Second stop on PGA TOUR Americas to take place June 24-30 in Strathcona County, AB

PGA TOUR Americas, Linx Marketing and ATB Financial confirmed today that the ATB Classic will be played at Northern Bear Golf Club as scheduled, June 24-30, while the club continues to rebuild after a fire destroyed the clubhouse on January 13.

“The incredible strength of the club and the community is what makes it possible for the ATB Classic to be played at Northern Bear this summer,” said Scott Pritchard, Vice President of PGA TOUR Americas. “Our players love Northern Bear and we’re looking forward to supporting the club as the healing and rebuilding process continues.”

“ATB Financial has proudly supported professional golf in Alberta for more than 25 years, and is excited for this highly competitive and rewarding event to return to the Northern Bear Golf Club,” said Curtis Stange, CEO of ATB Financial. “We are confident that the business community will rally around this tournament and that hundreds of volunteers, caddies and billets will help make it possible!”

“Northern Bear is excited to host the ATB Classic once again and we look forward to having the players and everyone involved back here in June” says Blair McDowell, Director of Golf.

“Hosting an International Professional Golf Tournament without a clubhouse will have its challenges”, said ATB Classic Tournament Director Darcy Enick.  “We are working closely with the Northern Bear staff and local sponsors and suppliers to ensure the ATB Classic will continue to be one of the top ranked events on PGA TOUR Americas”.

The Jack Nicklaus design proved to be a formidable test for PGA TOUR Americas players in 2023.   Notre Dame Graduate Davis Lamb won the tournament at -18 and went on to win the Quebec Open, and finished 3rd on the 2023 Fortinet Cup Standings.
