The Jamieson WFCU Windsor Roseland Charity Classic is just days away and Windsor will shine for golf professionals from 12 countries.

The opening drive will take place Thursday for the return of the Canadian Tour to the Essex County Area.

Roseland Golf Course was recently restored with new sand traps and decorative features.

Organizers say the Roseland Charity Classic is part of the road to the PGA Tour.

The leading money winner on the Canadian Tour is Matt Hill from Brights Grove Ontario — the same home town as legendary Canadian golfer Mike Weir — and will be joined by 120 touring professionals, some of whom have played on the PGA Tour this year. Also, a handful of local players will be challenging Windsor’s famous Donald Ross-designed golf course.

The Canadian Tour has been the training ground for many PGA Tour players over the years including Mike Weir, Steve Stricker, US Open champion Michael Campbell and British Open champion Todd Hamilton.
