Korn Ferry Tour sets dates for 2020 WinCo Portland Open set for Aug. 8-11

Updated: November 4, 2019

The PGA Tour announced the 2020 Korn Ferry Tour schedule, which features 28 tournaments played in 20 states and four countries outside the United States, with the season culminating with the Korn Ferry Tour Finals in August.

   The 28 total events are the most since 2010 and will include $18,850,000 in official prize money, the largest figure on the Korn Ferry Tour in over a decade. 

   The Pacific Northwest will be well represented on the Korn Ferry Tour. The WinCo Foods Portland Open is set for Aug. 8-11 at Pumpkin Ridge’s Witch Hollow Course, and will be the final chance for players to earn one of 25 PGA Tour cards for 2021. The Albertson’s Boise Open will be held Aug. 22-25 at Hillcrest Golf Club, one of the playoff tournaments on the tour.

   In addition to announcing the 2020 schedule, a new host was announced for The Bahamas Great Abaco Classic. Due to the devastating effects of Hurricane Dorian on Great Abaco, the event will now be contested in Nassau at Baha Mar’s Royal Blue Golf Club. All proceeds from the newly named Bahamas Great Abaco Classic at Baha Mar will go towards Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in The Bahamas. The tournament will be held the week of January 16-22, a week after The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay opens the 2020 season.

   The Royal Blue Golf Club at Baha Mar is a 2017 Jack Nicklaus Signature design, his first layout in The Bahamas. The Baha Mar resort is a 1,000-acre resort complex on the island of New Providence, northwest of The Bahamas’ capital, Nassau. 

   The Korn Ferry Tour will welcome four new events to the 2020 calendar in Lousiana, Texas, Alabama and Maine.
