The LPGA Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions will be presented by Insurance Office of America and hosted by the Tranquilo Golf Course at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando in a four-day tournament on January 17-20, 2019. The nationally televised event kicks off the LPGA Tour season. The world’s top women golfers will play alongside world-class celebrities.

This event is highly competitive, and the stakes are steep. In order to qualify for the prize money, a whopping $1.2 million, individuals must be an LPGA winner from one of the past two seasons. A $500,000-dollar purse will also be up for grabs for the LPGA pros. During the event’s pro-am, ten amateur golfers will qualify to play side by side with the professionals during official tournament rounds.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Diamond Resorts for the third year in a row by hosting their prestigious tournament at Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando,” said Thomas Steinhauer, General Manager and Regional Vice President of Four Seasons Resort Orlando.

The LPGA tournament is first and foremost a charity event. This year, the Diamond Resort Tournament of Champions will once again aid humanitarian and philanthropic causes. Over the past four years, these tournaments have helped to raise more than $3.1 million for charity. The live and silent auctions are incredible ways for the public to join their favorite golfers and celebrities alike in a cause.

Apart from the tournament itself, the tournament’s location is also significant. A winter tournament necessitates warm weather and Orlando, Florida certainly delivers on that front in January. The Tranquilo Golf Course at Four Seasons Resort Orlando is a Tom Fazio designed par 71 course that plays to 6,901 yards.  Thanks to a recent renovation to its practice facility in December 2017, the course is one of the most comprehensive in all of Central Florida.

“It’s very exciting for Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando to be in the national spotlight on both the Golf Channel and NBC,” said Joe Angelino, Club General Manager. “Our team has been working hard over the past few months to ensure the course is in impeccable condition for this main event.”

The LPGA Champions Tournament promises an exciting sports-viewing experience, terrific weather, and generous donations to charity. Don’t miss it – find it on the Golf Channel on January 17 and 18 and NBC on January 19 and 20.
