PGA Tour Champions TimberTech Championship as part of the Charles Schwab Cup

BOCA RATON – This year, the TimberTech Championship will remain in Boca Raton, but the PGA Tour Champions event will move to the Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club while its longtime host, the Broken Sound Club’s Old Course, undergoes a renovation by Hall of Fame architect Rees Jones.

Aside from the venue change, business will continue as usual for Palm Beach County’s longest-running professional golf tournament. It will keep the same dates, November 4-6, as well as its place as the second tournament in the Charles Schwab Cup qualifiers, attracting the top 54 players on the 50+ circuit.

“We are thrilled to be able to keep the TimberTech Championship in Boca Raton while this renovation is underway,” said tournament director Eddie Carbone. “We’ve been in this community for 15 years and it’s important that we continue to showcase the best of PGA Tour champions.”

The main beneficiary will remain the regional hospital of Boca Raton; Since its inception, the TimberTech Championship has generated more than $2.4 million for local charities through the Boca Raton Champions Golf Charities.

“We are very fortunate to have this world-class golf tournament in our backyard, to benefit our community and more specifically our hospital,” said Lincoln Mendez, Regional Hospital President and CEO. by Boca Raton.

The TimberTech Championship will continue to be a zero waste event, which means no waste will be sent to landfills in the area. As part of TimberTech’s FULL-CIRCLE plastic bag collection campaign, some of the waste will even be recycled and repurposed to make TimberTech’s environmentally friendly and low-maintenance outdoor living products.

The TimberTech Championship is expected to attract another stellar field, headlined by defending champion Steven Alker. The New Zealand native has won three times since his first victory in Broken Sound last November and leads this year’s Charles Schwab Cup with nearly $2.5 million in prize money. Before Alker, the three previous winners of the TimberTech Championship were former great champions: Darren Clarke (2020), Hall of Famer Bernhard Langer (2019) and Mark Calcavecchia (2018). Langer, who lives 10 minutes from the course, is the only two-time champion of the event.

Langer and Clarke, who recently became the fourth player to sweep the Open Championship and Senior Open Championship, are set to play in the TimberTech Championship, alongside Padraig Harrington, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Colin Montgomerie.

Jack Nicklaus Connection at the Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club

The Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club was originally designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., but in 2003 Lost Tree Hall of Famer Jack Nicklaus created an entirely new course. Nicklaus had a historic past with Royal Palm. Just before deciding to turn professional, Nicklaus played the original course with golfing legend Sam Snead, the club’s first professional golfer.
