The PGA Tour’s regular stop in the Reno-Tahoe area will be hosted at a new club that is on the California side of the state line in the region.
The Barracuda Championship will be hosted at the Old Greenwood Golf Course at Tahoe Mountain in Truckee, California. The course is a Jack Nicklaus design that opened in 2004 and is located 30 miles from the previous host site at Montreux Golf & Country Club in Reno.
“We were very confident about securing a new home and Barracuda’s continued support of an event that has been on the PGA Tour schedule since 1999,” said Barracuda Championship Tournament Director Chris Hoff. “We are thrilled to once again partner with Barracuda and thank them as we enter the 22nd year of the tournament. In our search for a new PGA Tour tournament venue, the Old Greenwood Golf Course at Tahoe Mountain Club stood out from the beginning, which says a lot about the location and the course.”
The tournament has been in Reno since 1999, but club members voted this year to no longer host the event. The Barracuda Championship is known for being the only PGA Tour stop that uses the Modified Stableford scoring system.
Barracuda Networks, a San Francisco Bay Area-based tech company, will continue to be the title sponsor. Next year’s event will be held two weeks earlier than usual because of the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo, where golf will be on the competition schedule.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be back as the title sponsor and to continue the PGA Tour’s tradition of giving back to the communities it plays in,” said BJ Jenkins, president and chief executive officer at Barracuda. “The tournament brings together several of golf’s top performers to compete in one of the most spectacular settings and provides the opportunity to bring our best customers, partners and friends to the exceptional Reno-Tahoe community to share this experience with us.”
