Welcome to the 2021 Dominion Energy Charity Classic! This tournament has been voted by PGA TOUR Champions players as their favorite event in which to play three times since its inception in 2016. And it’s also a huge hit with spectators (just check out the online reviews or ask friend who has been!).
The tournament provides not only an exceptional golf experience unlike any in Richmond, but also offers fans – and first-timers – plenty of unique social experiences.
This is a special tournament for the PGA TOUR Champions field, where the top 72 players in the Charles Schwab Cup standings will tee it up at The Country Club of Virginia, James River Course for a chance to head to Boca Raton in the top 54 to compete in the Timber Tech Championship, and ultimately the Charles Schwab Cup Championship title! There’s also plenty to do besides watch golf, as the tournament features local food, local drinks and tons of entertainment options for kids and adults — including a post-play concert!
Dominion Energy and PGA TOUR Champions partnered with The Country Club of Virginia in 2018 to announce a 10-year extension of the Dominion Energy Charity Classic. This is the longest simultaneous title sponsor and host venue extension in PGA TOUR Champions history! So thank you…we’ll be here until 2029. Last year, we also hit the benchmark of over $5 million generated for #RVA since our inception – shout out to the #RVA community for their generosity!
We know, we know. You already bought your tickets to the tournament and Friday night concert (right?). But what about the other three days of tournament action? That’s three extra days to watch Langer do Langer things, take a selfie with the most interesting man in golf or catch Daly Grip it and Rip it. Oh, and did we mention former major champions Ernie Els, Jim Furyk and Mike Weir will be here too?
The tournament is held from Oct. 21 to 24 at The Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course. Here’s the spread:
