Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando to Host LPGA’s Champions-Only Tournament
Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando will kick off the New Year with an exciting event bringing together the world’s top women golfers to play alongside world-class sports and entertainment celebrities. The LPGA Tour’s Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions Presented by Insurance Office of America will take place January 21-24, 2021 on the pristine Tom Fazio signature course at Central Florida’s only AAA Five Diamond resort.
Stakes will run high at the LPGA Tour’s 2021 season opening event, as only LPGA Tour winners from the past two seasons will qualify to compete for USD 1.2 million in official prize money. While the LPGA Tour pros play 72 holes of stroke play with no cut, top-tier athletes and entertainers will be on the course competing using a modified Stableford scoring format for a separate USD 500,000 purse. During the event’s pro-am, a group of amateur golfers will qualify to play side by side with the professionals during official tournament rounds.
“We’re pleased to be the host venue for this incredible event for the fifth year in a row, and we are so excited to welcome so many talented athletes to Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando,” says Thomas Steinhauer, General Manager and Regional Vice President of Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort.
As tickets will not be available to the general public for this year’s event to ensure the health and safety of all participants, spectators are invited to tune in from afar as the four-day tournament will be nationally televised, January 21-24 airing on Golf Channel and January 23-24 on NBC.
Proceeds from the event’s live and silent auctions will directly benefit nominated charities. To date, the tournaments have helped raise more than USD 3.7 million for charity.
