The Savannah Golf Championship recently announced a five-year partnership with The Landings Club for the annual tournament to serve as official presenting sponsor. The event, which will formally be renamed the Savannah Golf Championship at The Landings Club, returns to The Landings – Deer Creek Course the week of March 22-28, 2021.

“We are pleased to announce The Landings Club as the first presenting sponsor of the Savannah Golf Championship,” said Tournament Director Cheyenne Overby. “The Landings Club is truly a remarkable location for professional golf and is a crucial part of the Savannah community. Today’s announcement further solidifies that relationship as we continue to grow our tournament footprint leading into 2021 and beyond.”

The tournament has become a player favorite on the Korn Ferry Tour. In October, Evan Harmeling defeated Kevin Dougherty 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. At the inaugural event in 2018, Sam Burns edged Roberto Castro by one stroke to secure the victory. Burns would go on to finish the season ranked second in tour and secured his PGA Tour card.

In addition to the presenting sponsorship, it was also announced The Landings Club would serve as host of the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament’s Final Stage, scheduled for November 1-7, 2021. Similar to the presenting sponsorships, a five-year agreement is in place to keep the tournament at The Landings Club through 2025.

“We are also thrilled to deepen our partnership with the PGA Tour as the host site for the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament’s Final Stage,” Freund said. “The Landings Club is ideally suited to host this drama-filled event as golf’s next generation of stars compete for their Korn Ferry Tour cards. We believe our partnership brings great benefit to The Landings Club, the Korn Ferry Tour and the aspiring golfers we will be privileged to host.”
