The second edition of the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Challenge will take place from August 10 to 12 at the magnificent St-Raphaël Golf Club in Île-Bizard. The best golfers in Quebec will be playing for a total of $40,000 in prizes.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to be a major ally of the Association des golfeurs professionels du Québec (AGP) and to sponsor several AGP tournaments, such as the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Classic. This year, the Classic was held in the Lower Saint-Lawrence region from June 29 to July 1, crowning Dave Lévesque as the winner.

“The Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Challenge is another opportunity to promote our province’s talent. For a Quebec enterprise such as ours, our association with the AGP attests to our direct promotion of Quebec athletes and golfers”, said Marketing Vice-President, Marc Bergeron.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s pro-am event and qualifications will be held on Wednesday, August 10, and the first round will be played on Thursday. The final round will be played on Friday, August 12.
