Bank of Montreal MasterCard and the Canadian Professional Golfers’ Association have teamed up to create a value packed MasterCard offering for golfers.
The new Canadian PGA Bank of Montreal MasterCard is available immediately to all members of the Canadian PGA, as well as golf afficionados all over Canada. When using the card for purchases, the Canadian PGA cardholder will be entitled to such benefits as discounts on golf lessons, green fee discount books and Ultimate Golf Vacations.
“Every golfer will want a Canadian PGA Bank of Montreal MasterCard,” said Canadian PGA Chief Executive Office, David Colling. “In addition to the valuable discounts and benefits that cardholders will receive, a portion of the card’s revenue will be used to support junior activities of the Canadian PGA. We are extremely excited about this venture and feel it has tremendous potential.”
With over five million golfers in Canada, the golf participation rate per capita is higher in this country than anywhere else in the world.
“Affinity cards are a terrific way to support non-profit organizations and charitable causes,” said Michelle Field, Vice President, Bank of Montreal MasterCard. “Bank of Montreal MasterCard has over 200 different affinity cards with charitable, academic, athletic and cultural organizations, allowing consumers to choose a card tailored to their own individual interests and needs.”
The Canadian PGA is a membership-based, non-profit organization representing over 3,000 club professionals and tournament professionals across Canada. It is committed to improving and promoting the game of golf by providing the golfing public and the Canadian PGA-approved facilities with the highest quality administrators, teachers, players and promoters of the game, through superior training, education and member development.

Serving five million customers across the country, Bank of Montreal MasterCard is also the largest card issuer of the AIR MILES(R)+ Reward Program and the only credit card in Canada to offer the FirstHome(R) Program. In addition to Platinum, Gold, US Dollar, student, and low-interest options, Bank of Montreal MasterCard offers co-branded cards with canada.com, Star Trek and Shell.Details
