Welcome to the 2022 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 (Did you know - it's been the best attended Charles Schwab Cup Playoff event since inception in 2016?!). 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 concert!
Here’s all you need to know about the 2022 tournament.
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?

Oh, and did we mention former major champions Ernie Els, Jim Furyk and Mike Weir will be here too?
