OTTAWA - Canadas top professional golf tour is on target to return to Ottawa for the first time since 2001.

PGA Tour Canada, formerly the Canadian Tour, is expected to announce Thursday it will hold a tournament at Hylands Golf Club from Aug. 4-10.

The three-year deal will see the $150,000 tournament support the Canadian Armed Forces as part of the PGA Tours Military Outreach Program. The Military Families Fund is slated to be the main beneficiary. Forces and Families will be the host organization. Hylands, a 36-hole club which will see its north course used for the event, is part of the Canadian Forces Personnel Support Program.
