MIAMI (AFP) — The Saudi-backed LIV Golf series has announced three new venues for their 14-event tour for 2023 with tournaments in Mexico, Singapore and Spain.
The circuit, which completed its first season last month, will play at Mayakoba’s El Camaleon Golf Course in February, Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore in April and Real Club Valderrama in Spain in June.
LIV Golf, bankrolled by oil-rich Saudi’s giant Public Investment Fund had already announced that it would hold an event in Adelaide, Australia in April.
“These venues have played host to signature moments in golf, and we’re excited to build new traditions for the sport while delivering a first-class fan experience at some of the world’s best courses,” LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman said in a statement.
Golf has been bitterly divided after LIV lured major winners including Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka and Cameron Smith to sign lucrative deals with the heavily financed tour.
