Here comes the LIV Tour to The Las Vegas Country Club Feb. 8-10–Super Bowl Weekend–so what does that mean for the pending PGA Tour and PIF agreement? All we know is that the LIV spectacle is on the way to Vegas and the historic and iconic Las Vegas Country Club. –-By Brian Hurlburt
LIV Golf announced the global schedule and Vegas is the second stop. Others include Mayakoba, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Houston, Nashville, United Kingdom and others. This writer–who authored The Las Vegas Country Club-Chronicle of an Icon–will be nterested in what is to come.
And despite those believing that Greg Norman, the “league’s” CEO is on the way out, he was the man front and center with the quote in the official schedule media release.
“LIV Golf is the truly global golf league that the sport and its fans deserve,” said Norman. “We’re thrilled to announce an exciting slate of events that reflects our commitment to bringing world-class players and premier competition to new and repeat markets every year. Launching a new league is a massive undertaking, and we’re full steam ahead building off our incredibly successful first full season in 2023. Our goal has always been to create a worldwide league that inspires progress and attracts new fans to the sport that we love. LIV Golf is stronger than ever, and next season will accomplish that goal and more.”
The 2024 regular season schedule will also bring many of the top players in professional golf to new markets and venues. In February, the historic Las Vegas Country Club, located in the heart of Las Vegas, will host the first U.S.-based event of the season. In March, LIV Golf travels to Saudi Arabia before visiting Hong Kong Golf Club, home of the Hong Kong Open, the city’s oldest professional sporting event. In June, the Golf Club of Houston will host LIV Golf’s first tournament in the state of Texas before The Grove golf club in Nashville brings the league’s “Golf, But Louder” theme to Tennessee. In late July, LIV Golf will visit the United Kingdom for a third consecutive year, this time traveling to the renowned JCB Golf and Country Club in Staffordshire.
