Pro Golf May Return To Gwinnett
Champions Tour for golfers at least 50 years old might make stop at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth.
Gwinnett County may see a pro golf tour stop again after an absence of several years.
Gwinnett tourism officials are discussing with the PGA Tour on getting a tournament in the county, and may release information at the end of April. It likely would be a Champions Tour event, which is for pro golfers at least 50 years old.
"It would be great to get this tournament here in Gwinnett," said Stan Hall of the Gwinnett Sports Commission.
The tour stop likely would be at the TPC Sugarloaf course in Duluth, which hosted the regular PGA Tour event through 2008. The event left because of the lack of a title sponsor.
The Champions Tour includes some very recognizable names. Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples and Tom Kite are among the leaders in the Charles Schwab cup, which is the season-long points race for the tour.
