Sanderson Farms Championship moving to Country Club of Jackson
Mississippi’s only PGA Tour event plans to move to Country Club of Jackson, ending a 20-year relationship with Annandale Golf Club.
The Sanderson Farms Championship has been played at Annandale in Madison, Miss., which is a suburb of Jackson, since 1994. This year’s tournament is scheduled for Nov. 6-9.
The move is pending approval by the PGA Tour’s Policy Board on April 29, according to a statement from the tournament.
Sanderson Farms CEO Joe Sanderson said in the statement he appreciated Annandale’s “unwavering support of this tournament” but that a move to the Country Club of Jackson “will allow the tournament to raise more money for Friends of Children’s Hospital, the tournament’s main beneficiary.”
This year’s tournament will be the same week as the World Golf Championship-HSBC Champions in China.
