The Oakville Chamber of Commerce hosts a monthly “meet and greet” – a Business After Hours that was held at the Golf Canada located on the beautiful grounds of the Glen Abbey Golf Club, Oakville, Ontario. The Business After Hours is held at a different location each month to enable members of the Oakville community to connect with other business professional and entrepreneurs in a relaxed setting that combines networking with food, drinks and friends. It also allows those in attendance to discover Oakville businesses, at home, in their location – this time – on the Glen Abbey Golf Club grounds.

Glen Abbey Golf Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus in 1976, is one of Canada’s most famous golf courses and is home to the Royal Canadian Golf Association and the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame. The Glen Abbey Golf Club, for the 27th time, (the first time was in 1977) has been asked to host 2015 RBC Canadian Open. This world-class event, which is part of the Triple Crown of national golf championships, will host many of the best golfers in the world July 20 – 26, 2015.

“We are very pleased to welcome the RBC Canadian Open back to Glen Abbey,” said Rai Sahi, ClubLink President and CEO. “It is only fitting that Canada’s most famous course plays host to our National Open Championship. Since the Canadian Open was first played on this Jack Nicklaus Signature course in 1977, Glen Abbey has produced many worthy champions including Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Greg Norman, Lee Trevino, Curtis Strange and Brandt Snedeker. We look forward to a great tournament week and another outstanding champion in 2015.” Visit: www.glenabbey.ca
