Allianz Championship Pricing, Dates Set For Boca Raton

Allianz Championship Boca RatonBOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The first PGA Tour event of the season — the 2013 Allianz Championship — is rapidly approaching. Set for the Old Course at Broken Sound, we’ve just received word on official dates, times, and pricing:

The 2013 Allianz Championship, the first full-field PGA Champions Tour event of the season will tee-off with a celebrated roster of golf legends at The Old Course at Broken Sound Club from February 4th-10th for the seventh consecutive year in Boca Raton. Tournament week is jam-packed with interactive “events within the event” before and during championship play with opportunities for “up close and personal” interaction with pros for golf fans of all ages.

 

As the first in the early-season Florida swing, tournament play will include 2012 defending champion Corey Pavin, 2011 champion Tom Lehman (2011 and 2012 Charles Schwab Cup season-long points race winner), 2010 champion Bernhard Langer, Mark Calcavecchia, Fuzzy Zoeller and more, all vying for the winner’s share of a $1.8 million purse. Produced by the nonprofit Boca Raton Champions Golf Charities (BRCGC) board that oversees tournament operations, financials and distribution of all charitable funds, the Allianz Championship will continue to “chip-in” net proceeds to benefit the Boca Raton Regional Hospital.

 

In addition to three days of championship play, the Allianz Championship features a Women’s Power Breakfast, Clinic & Pro-Am with LGPA legend and eight-time “Player of the Year” Annika Sorenstam; two days of Executive Pro-Am play pairing participants with PGA pros; a “social, power & play” opportunity at the “Grapes On The Green” Golf & Wine Experience held overlooking the 18th green during second round play; and the popular Saturday Family Day.

 

Tournament Director Ryan Dillon reported the 2012 tournament delivered $15 million in economic impact to the community, drew 65,000 spectators, was viewed by 4.9 million with all three championship rounds televised live by the Golf Channel, raised $300,000 for the Boca Raton Champions Golf Charities and is now officially “one the greenest golf tournaments” on the PGA Champions Tour. He added that the inaugural tournament efforts resulted in 92% of all tournament waste recycled, a 30% reduction in carbon footprint and a 25% reduction in fuel for diesel generators
