Located in beautiful Oakville, Ontario in Canada, Glen Abbey is a growing community with many fine homes situated near bountiful walking and biking trails with plenty of recreational opportunities and home to the Glen Abbey Golf Course.
Glen Abbey Golf - Canadian Open: The championship returned to the Glen Abbey Golf Club for the 26th time from July 22-28, 2013. Scott Piercy is the 2012 winner of the Canadian Open 2012 which was held at the Hamilton Golf & Country Club in Ontario from July 23-29, 2012.
