JCB Golf & Country Club to host most prestigious tour event yet

JCB’s Golf & Country Club will host its most prestigious tour event yet after it was confirmed that the LIV Golf League is heading for the venue next summer.

On July 26-28, 2024, the Staffordshire course will welcome major stars for LIV Golf UK.

Since opening five years ago, The Club has already hosted the Legends Tour and the Rose Ladies Series.

LIV Golf’s international field set to grace the fairways of the JCB Golf & Country Club is likely to include Bryson DeChambeau, Talor Gooch, Brooks Koepka, Cameron Smith, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer.

Majesticks GC, one of LIV Golf’s 12 teams, which features European legends Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Henrik Stenson, along with talented English pro Sam Horsfield, expect to draw strong attention from local crowds. Final rosters for the league’s teams will be announced prior to the season launch when teams will compete in the global 14-event schedule in pursuit of the 2024 Individual and Team Championships.

JCB CEO Graeme Macdonald said, “We have very ambitious goals for the JCB Golf & Country Club and the whole team is absolutely delighted that LIV Golf has selected the course as its sole UK venue for 2024. To have secured this tour event so early in the life of the JCB Golf & Country Club is testament to everyone’s hard work in creating a course which is already recognised as one of the best in the country.

“Having already hosted four professional tour events, this news in another great step towards putting the JCB Golf & Country Club firmly on the international golf map.”

LIV Golf commissioner and CEO Greg Norman added, “LIV Golf made history in the UK with our groundbreaking launch in 2022 and memorable encore event this past summer. For 2024, we’re thrilled to expand our reach in the UK with a new host venue in JCB Golf and Country Club, one of the top courses in the country. Only five-years-old, this fantastic course has already proven its mettle on the professional stage and will add to an exciting summer swing in Europe as our players hit our season homestretch.”

Spanning 240 acres, the JCB Golf & Country Club has been voted as one of the Top 10 most exclusive golf clubs in the UK.
