This year’s inaugural event will take place from 19-24 April at the Las Colinas Country Club in Texas and will see 78 veteran pro golfers play alongside 50 celebrities from sports and entertainment.

Among the confirmed celebs are Annika Sorenstam, World Golf Hall of Famer and 72-time Ladies PGA winner, as well as 11-time MLB All-Star pitcher Roger Clemens and comedian Larry the Cable Guy.

Choctaw Casinos & Resorts has been selected as the competition’s presenting sponsor for “its status as a premier entertainment venue”.

Owned by the Choctaw Nation, the tribal operator oversees a chain of eight Indian casinos throughout Oklahoma.

David Pillsbury, ClubCorp CEO, commented: “Choctaw Casinos & Resorts is well-known throughout our region for the important role they play in entertainment, their high-end level of hospitality and attention to detail, as well as the work they do in the community.

“They are an ideal partner in the launch and growth of this spectacular event.”

The tournament will benefit Momentous Institute, a non-profit based in north Texas dedicated to building and repairing social and emotional health.

A group of amateur ClubCorp members will also compete, with a chance to win a spot playing side-by-side with the pros and celebrities.

“We are thrilled to partner with the ClubCorp Classic and PGA Tour Champions as both organisations share a culture centred around respect, innovation and entertainment,” remarked Janie Dillard, Senior Executive Officer for the Choctaw Nation.

“We look forward to connecting with both fans and players in fun and unique ways to not only help grow the event but to maximise the charitable impact for the community.”
