    This year’s tournament will be held Wednesday, December 4 – Saturday, December 7, 2019 at Albany, marking the fifth consecutive year the event has been held in The Bahamas.

Founded by Woods, NEXUS Luxury Collection and members of the Albany community following Hurricane Dorian, ONE Bahamas Fund has pledged $6 million towards the rebuilding of The Bahamas with a dollar for dollar match in hopes of raising $12 million to help those impacted by the hurricane.

    Live television coverage of the 2019 Hero World Challenge will be provided by GOLF Channel during all four rounds and by NBC during the final round. Good-any-day grounds tickets and a limited number of premium hospitality packages for the Hero World Challenge are available for purchase here.
