Web.com Tour Championship moving to Victoria National in 10-year deal

The Web.com Tour Championship will be played at Victoria National Golf Club in Evansville, Ind., for the next 10 years.

In a new deal with United Leasing and Finance, the Web.com Tour Finals and that tour's season will conclude at one of the toughest courses -- if not the toughest -- on the developmental tour's schedule through 2028. United Leasing and Finance will become the tournament presenting sponsor. The purse will remain $1 million and will determine the fate of a 25 PGA Tour cards from the Web.com Tour Finals money list, as well the priority order for the top 25 on the Web.com Tour regular season money list.



The United Leasing and Finance Championship, which started in 2012 and was scheduled to be played in April 2019 as part of the Web.com Tour regular season, will end and not be played in the coming season. A new tournament to replace it will be announced by the Web.com Tour in January 2019.

Victoria National was acquired in August 2018 by the Dormie Network, a Nebraska-based golf-course ownership group headed by Zach Peed offering national memberships at properties throughout the United States. Other courses in the network include ArborLinks (Nebraska City, Neb.), Dormie Club (Pinehurst, N.C.), Ballyhack Golf Club (Roanoke, Va.) and Briggs Ranch Golf Club (San Antonio, Texas).

“This new 10-year agreement would not have been possible without the support of our partners and sponsors and their commitment to help grow the United Leasing and Finance Championship into a much larger and more meaningful golf tournament, benefiting our region and its charities,” said United Leasing and Finance CEO Ron Romain. “We are thrilled to continue our support of this first-class Tour event for our great community.”

The tournament's primary beneficiary will remain Golf Gives Back, a charity established to help area organizations. Over seven years, the United Leasing and Finance Championship raised nearly $1.7 million for Golf Gives Back.
