PGA West pulling out of Humana after 2015 event

RSS

The Humana Challenge needs to find two new host courses for the Palm Springs-area event beginning in 2016, according to a report by the Desert Sun

PGA West’s Palmer Private and Nicklaus courses are reportedly pulling out after January 2015, continuing a series of tournament tweaks in the past few years – a new partnership, a format change and the elimination of more than half the amateur field. 

The Tour has about 18 months to find a pair of new host sites, and the Desert Sun speculated that SilverRock and PGA West’s TPC Stadium Course likely will be in the mix. La Quinta Country Club has been a part of the tournament’s rotation every year since 2010.

In 2011, the tournament was held over five days and at four different courses, including Silver Rock. From 2012-14, the event was four rounds and La Quinta and PGA West’s Palmer and Nicklaus courses were used in the rotation.
