In light of the escalating uncertainty presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, specifically:

  • the emergence of the Delta variant and worsening case counts in all our participating countries,
  • the presence of a Lambda variant now being raised,
  • a 4th wave of the pandemic being mentioned as a certainty by medical experts,
  • continuing lockdowns in Australia with relief not expected until the end of 2021 at the earliest,
  • the absence of a clear long-term vaccination travel policy in Canada,
  • international availability of Government of Canada approved vaccines currently limited to Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson: completion of doses essential for entry into Canada,
  • anticipated Government of Canada requirement of Vaccination status “Passport” ; for access to Canada and once here, to venues where people assemble – sporting events, performances, cinema, restaurants, bars, and similar.

Initially medical experts estimated a minimum 5-year duration for the pandemic on a global level. Such appears to be the case.

The Ukrainian Golf Association of Canada has made the difficult, but necessary decision to postpone UWGC 11 until at least 2023. In all likelihood our target date will be even later.

Financial and health prudence requires to step back until we can be sure that we can be confident in full commitment from our participant countries.

We at UGAC remain committed to hosting our tournament at the earliest possible opportunity in the style to which we have become accustomed and expect. The detailed work done in preparation for the earlier dates puts us in a good position to quickly organize our tournament once a date can be established.

Warm regards, and be well,
Bohdan Kushnir, President UGAC
