Tournament officials announced today there is still time to take advantage of sponsorship opportunities and Pro-Am slots for the 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship, to be played October 2-8 at The Country Club of Jackson.
A complete listing of private or shared hospitality venues and Pro-Am opportunities can be found HERE. The tournament staff will be looking to finalize additional sponsorships in the upcoming weeks to ensure the success of this year’s tournament.
Since 1994, Century Club Charities has served as the host organization for Mississippi’s PGA TOUR event, helping to raise over $23 million for statewide charities. The tournament has been part of the PGA TOUR schedule since 1968 and is now in its 13th year as a part of the FedExCup. Wayne-Sanderson Farms, the nation’s third largest poultry producer is headquartered in Oakwood, GA., with regional offices in Laurel, MS, is the tournament’s title sponsor.
“Sponsorships are the cornerstone of a successful tournament,” said executive director Steve Jent. “The recent $1 million gift to Children’s of Mississippi, an additional anonymous donation of $100,000 directly to UMMC, coupled with over $400,000 to nearly 50 deserving Mississippi charities brings the 2022 total charitable impact of Century Club Charities to over $1.5 million statewide. Over the years, the commitment our corporate partners have shown our event is extraordinary and illustrates what a wonderful market Mississippi is for both professional golf and philanthropy.”
“We are excited in 2023 to offer exclusive and shared Hospitality Suite packages, as well as customized sponsor opportunities to afford anyone the ability to entertain special business associates, employees, friends, and family in grand style,” said John Mercer, Director of Sales. “We also have a few Pro-Am team sponsorships left for anyone looking to play with friends or clients alongside a PGA TOUR player.”
The 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship will feature a purse of $8.1 million with $1,458,000 going to the winner. The Golf Channel will broadcast primetime coverage from Thursday’s opening round to the trophy presentation on Sunday. Two Pro-Am tournaments will take place during the week, Monday’s Pro-Am on October 2, and Wednesday’s Pro-Am on October 4.
