We’re thrilled to announce that the Korn Ferry Tour’s Club Car Championship returns to The Landings Club’s Deer Creek Course for the fourth time March 22-28, 2021. The tournament is a 72-hole, stroke-play competition with a total purse of $600,000. With 50 available PGA TOUR cards for the following season, the Korn Ferry Tour is The Path to the PGA TOUR.
Deer Creek, host course for the Club Car Championship and the next wave of PGA TOUR stars, was originally built by Tom Fazio in 1991, with the famed architect returning in 2009 to modernize the course via an expansive restoration. Crews have been hard at work getting the course ready, and we are excited to give the players a championship caliber experience during these interesting times!
The Club Car Championship has quickly become a player favorite on the Korn Ferry Tour. In October 2020, Evan Harmeling emerged victorious after defeating Kevin Doughtery in the tournament’s first playoff. In 2019, Dan McCarthy outlasted Scottie Scheffler to take home his first Korn Ferry Tour victory. Scheffler, who won twice on the Korn Ferry Tour last season, was recently named the PGA TOUR’s Rookie of the Year.
Last year, the Landings Military Family Relief Fund, one of the charities that annually benefits from the Club Car Championship, was named as recipient of the Korn Ferry Tour’s Charity of the Year award. The Fund helped the tournament launch a successful Military Appreciation Day, which has now become a defining initiative for the event moving forward.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Korn Ferry Tour’s 2020 and 2021 seasons combined as a one-time, wraparound season due to prior event cancelations. The newly created 2020-21 schedule will conclude with 25 PGA TOUR cards awarded at the 2021 Pinnacle Bank Championship presented by Aetna, with an additional 25 cards awarded at the conclusion of the 2021 Korn Ferry Tour Finals.
