The inaugural LIV Golf season is done and dusted – and it was, in most parts, a success – but where will Greg Norman’s stars be playing next? Here’s the LIV Golf schedule for 2023…
LIV Golf schedule
The breakaway circuit, which originally planned to continue its ‘Invitational Series’ format for several years before reassessing, will become the LIV Golf League from 2023 onwards. This will feature 14 events each with a set 48-man field consisting of 12 four-man teams which will remain unchanged for the entirety of the season.
The Grange in Adelaide has been confirmed as LIV’s Australian stop for their second season, with three global venues also set for 2023.
El Camaleon in Mexico will serve as the kick-off event for LIV’s 14-event schedule in February, representing the first course to leave the PGA Tour in favour of staging a tournament on the Saudi-funded circuit. Designed by Norman, El Camaleon has played host to 16 editions of the World Wide Technologies Championship at Mayakoba on the PGA Tour.
Confirming one of Norman’s worst kept secrets, Valderrama will provide the setting for LIV Golf Spain, adding renowned pedigree to the schedule having hosted the Ryder Cup in 1997.
Completing the trio of global announcements is Sentosa in Singapore, which will host LIV’s trip to the Lion City in April.
LIV Golf has since confirmed three more courses for 2023. Listed in the most announcement are Greenbrier – the West Virginia track previously used to stage a PGA Tour event between 2010-2019 – The Gallery in Arizona, and Cedar Ridge in Oklahoma.
So where else are they going?
The other seven courses will then me made up of venues from the United States of America, England, and Saudi Arabia.
This includes returns to Centurion in St Albans, Rich Harvest Farms, Trump National Bedminster, Trump National Miami, and Royal Greens in Jeddah, five courses which were all used in the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational series.
It has then been announced that a tournament will be staged on the weekend before the Masters at Orange County National in Orlando. Completing the lineup is then a trip to Trump National Washington DC in May.
Perhaps most surprisingly, LIV’s 2023 season will now extend into November and will conclude in Saudi Arabia, rather than the initially planned Trump National Doral. Whether or not that will be the $50 million final Team Championship remains to be seen.
There is also talk that LIV has no interest in competing with the majors – indeed, many of their players, including Dustin Johnson and Cameron Smith, are still eligible – or the PGA Tour’s so-called heritage events.
