The PGA Tour has added a stop in Bermuda to its 2019–2020 schedule, with the new Bermuda Championship to be played the same weekend as the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions. The tournament will be staged October 31–November 3, 2019, at Port Royal Golf Course in Bermuda.
The event will be the tour’s first in Bermuda and the Bermuda Tourism Authority has signed a five-year agreement, through 2023, to be the event’s title sponsor.
“We are excited to add the Bermuda Championship to the PGA Tour beginning next season,” said Ty Votaw, executive vice president, international for the PGA Tour. “Bermuda is an appealing year-round destination and the players will love visiting in the fall, plus we will be hosted by an outstanding golf course. It promises to be a wonderful opportunity to showcase Bermuda—a beautiful island destination that embodies genuine hospitality—to the world.”
“The Bermuda Tourism Authority is thrilled to have secured this pinnacle event in golf for Bermuda’s tourism industry and community,” said Kevin Dallas, CEO of the Bermuda Tourism Authority. “We’ve had our sights set on a PGA Tour partnership because of the significant economic benefit the event itself will generate for Bermuda’s economy as well as the worldwide exposure to their audience that perfectly aligns with Bermuda’s visitor targets.”
