Countdown to Butterfield Bermuda APGA Championship

The Butterfield Bermuda Championship is pleased to announce the return of the Butterfield Bermuda APGA Championship, in conjunction with the Advocates Professional Golf Association (APGA) and the PGA TOUR. This event is the rescheduled competition from October of 2023.

The Butterfield Bermuda APGA Championship will be hosted at Port Royal Golf Course in Southampton, Bermuda, December 12th & 13th. The event is sponsored by the Bermuda Tourism Authority, Butterfield, The Hamilton Princess and Beach Club and Life and Annuity Services (LAS).

The APGA was created in 2010 as a non-profit organization and aims to bring greater diversity to the game of golf by putting on tournaments, player development programs and mentoring programs. The Butterfield Bermuda APGA Championship will celebrate inclusion and provide minority individuals with an equal opportunity to compete at the highest level.

APGA Tour CEO Ken Bentley, said, “We are thankful to the Butterfield Bermuda Championship team and the Bermuda Tourism Authority for providing our players and our Tour with this opportunity. In addition to having the chance to compete, we are also excited to connect our players with the PGA TOUR throughout the week while showcasing what makes Bermuda an incredible destination and spreading the message of equality and inclusion.”

The field will be comprised of 18 of the top APGA Tour players, based on the final 2023 APGA Tour Lexus Cup standings, and three local Bermudians who will have a chance to earn their spot during the local qualifier at Port Royal Golf Course. Players will compete for an exemption into the 2024 Butterfield Bermuda Championship and a purse of $60,000 making it the fourth largest on the APGA Tour.
