“The course was unplayable. There was excessive water in the fairways,” said Susan White, Senior Manager, Field Operations for British Columbia Golf. “To have played would have not been good for the course or the players.”
 
White and her tournament team surveyed the course just before 6 a.m. Thursday and notified the players via email just before 6:30 a.m. The respective leaders after the second round were awarded the titles at a presentation ceremony Thursday morning.
