PGA TOUR Champions season-ending event to remain at Phoenix C.C. through 2027
PHOENIX – The Charles Schwab Cup Championship announced today a 10-year agreement with Phoenix Country Club to serve as host of the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs finale through 2027. The season-ending tournament, which debuted at the storied club in 2017, will call Phoenix Country Club home for the next decade, with the 2018 event set to be contested the week of November 5-11.
“The 2017 debut of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship at Phoenix Country Club was a tremendous success, and we were thrilled to bring professional golf back to the heart of downtown Phoenix,” said tournament chairman Brad East. “Our membership supported this event from the start with incredible enthusiasm, and we look forward to hosting the premier tournament on PGA TOUR Champions for the next 10 years while building off the great foundation already in place.”
Phoenix Country Club, which became the eighth club to host the Charles Schwab Cup Championship last November, has a long history with professional golf dating back to 1932 when it served as host of the PGA TOUR’s Waste Management Phoenix Open through 1986. The 10-year extension to host the final Playoffs event through 2027 marks the longest host course agreement in PGA TOUR Champions history.
“The Charles Schwab Cup Championship has found a terrific home in Phoenix Country Club, and we are excited for the future of this great event,” said executive director Tiffany Nelson. “The PGA TOUR has a rich tradition with the city of Phoenix, and we are thrilled to be able to continue that legacy. The Club’s dedication to hosting a top-tier event was phenomenal throughout 2017, and we look forward to growing this partnership over the next decade.”
Founded in 1899, Phoenix Country Club is one of the oldest venues in the west, with a classic, parkland routing tucked away in a neighborhood adjacent to the city's center, complete with views of Piestewa Peak, Camelback Mountain and the downtown skyline.
The original layout was designed by Harry Collis in 1901, with a full redesign by PGA TOUR Champions star Tom Lehman and noted architect John Fought in 2002.
This extension comes on the heels of last month’s announcement that the Charles Schwab Cup Championship will return in 2018 as a 72-hole competition with a one-day official pro-am on Wednesday of tournament week.
