Peter Jacobsen Sports announced that Umpqua Bank has elected to become the title sponsor of the upcoming Peter’s Party golf tournament. Newly titled The Umpqua Bank Challenge, the event will be played August 28-30, 2011 at Portland Golf Club in Portland, Ore.

“As far as partnerships go, I couldn’t be happier about the pairing of Umpqua Bank and Peter Jacobsen Sports,” said PGA Tour professional and Portland-native Peter Jacobsen, “We’re both local companies with deep roots in Portland and in the state of Oregon, and we’re both committed to supporting non-profit organizations and giving back to the community.”

The Umpqua Bank Challenge will feature a Sunday pro/celebrity-am and Monday/Tuesday main field event. The main field event will showcase eight two-man teams comprised of PGA Tour and Champions Tour professionals. There will be golf clinics hosted by Peter Jacobsen on both Sunday and Monday mornings and live entertainment open to the public on Tuesday afternoon following the completion of play.
