THE ROBERT TRENT JONES TRAIL CHAMPIONSHIP ON THE WEB.COM TOUR IS LATEST CONTRIBUTION FROM LEADING SPORTS MANAGEMENT FIRM
February 11, 2019 – Coming off a successful debut of the White Sands Bahamas Pro- Am, the first of a year-long series of golf events in The Bahamas, Global Golf Management last week was proud to be introduced as playing an integral role in the creation of a new Web.com Tour event, the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship.
Offering a purse of $550,000, the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship will be held at the Capitol Hill (Senator Course) on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Prattville, Alabama, April 15-21 with a field of 156 players. The Web.com Tour made the announcement of the new event on Feb. 6.
Global Golf Management, which assisted with the creation of the tournament, will be in charge of operating the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship.
“We are grateful to have yet another opportunity to prove how valuable we are to the professional golf tours with the creation of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship,” said Mike Harmon, principal of Global Golf Management. “We have proven ourselves capable of running every type of golf event including major championships and the Olympics in 2016, but we want to stress how important it is for the golf world to know that we are working hard to create new playing opportunities in both the men’s and women’s game in the professional as well as amateur ranks.”
The Web.com Tour’s announcement marks the Web.com Tour’s 11th partnership with the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, which hosted the Web.com Tour Championship from 1997 through 2005 at four different properties, including the Senator Course each of the final five years. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, which opened in 1992, features 468 holes of golf across 11 sites in Alabama.
Global Golf Management also helped create the Barbasol Championship on the PGA TOUR that was held on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Grand National Course in Opelika, Alabama, in its first three years starting in 2015.
