Rivermead Cup

The Club donated the Rivermead Cup, emblematic of the Open Championship of Canada, at the 1920 Open, which was hosted by Rivermead. The Rivermead Cup continued to be awarded to the winner of the Canadian Open until 1935.

In 1936, when Seagram’s took over sponsorship of the Open (and put up the Seagram Gold Cup), the Rivermead Cup was awarded to the Low Canadian Professional in the Open Championship of Canada until 1961.

In 2007, the Royal Canadian Golf Association resumed the presentation of the Rivermead Cup to the Low Canadian in the RBC Canadian Open. Recent winners include Mike Weir, Graham DeLaet, David Hearn, Stephen Ames, Adam Hadwin, Chris Baryla and Mackenzie Hughes.

Golf Canada announced in 2010 that the low Canadian winners between 1962 and 2006 would have their names added to the Rivermead Cup.

In 2010, Rivermead Club President, Bruno Bonneville, presented to Rivermead Cup to Adam Hadwin during the award ceremony at St. George’s Golf and Country Club in Toronto. In the fall of 2010, Adam was a guest of the Club at our Centennial Bridge opening ceremony and was awarded an Honorary Lifetime Membership at Rivermead in celebration of his winning of the Rivermead Cup in our Centennial year.
