The Glen Abbey course, scene of this weeks RBC Canadian Open, playing at 7,222 yards long and designed by Jack Niclaus does not really favour any particular type of player over the other. The course is average length with treelined fairways and small very undulating slick (11.5) greens that are guarded by deep bunkers mean that the premium is on accurate iron play and good positioning off the tee with the ability to read slopey greens.
