Chubb Classic Announces New Host Venue, 2021 Dates
Volunteer Registration Now Open for the 2021 Chubb Classic
The Chubb Classic will be held February 8-14, 2021, on the Black Course at Tiburón Golf Club, tournament organizers announced today. Organizers also announced that volunteer registration is officially open for the 2021 tournament.
The Chubb Classic has been contested on courses throughout Naples since 1988, but this marks the first time the event will be played at Tiburón Golf Club, which also hosts events featuring LPGA and PGA TOUR players. Once again, the tournament will feature the legends of the game competing over 54 holes for a share of $1.6 million in prize money.
“On behalf of our members and staff we are pleased to have the opportunity to host the Chubb Classic in 2021,” said Kevin DeDonato, General Manager at Tiburón Golf Club. “The support we receive from ownership, Troon, and all of our great partners will provide the resources to make this another successful event. We look forward to working with the Eiger team along with all of the organizations affiliated with this long standing event.”
Volunteer registration is also officially underway for the 2021 Chubb Classic. Each year, volunteers donate their time to serve critical needs such as scoring, transportation, hospitality services and many other important functions.
“Volunteers have been an integral part of our event since its inception and we’re extremely grateful for their assistance,” said Scott Reid, Executive Director of the Chubb Classic. “Our event attracts hundreds of individuals to volunteer their time and they are crucial to help us stage one of Naples largest annual events.”
