2012 Legends of Golf Tournament Marks a Decade in Savannah

lmilog_logo.jpgWhen the RBC Heritage ends on April 15, pack up your folding chair and head to Savannah for the 35th year of the Champions Tour Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf, April 16-22, at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. This year marks the event’s 10th year on the par-72 championship course designed by Robert Cupp and Sam Snead.

The event announced this year that it will stay in Savannah through 2013—good news for the city’s businesses and residents, of course, but also for local charitable organizations, which have benefited from the tournament to the tune of about $1.5 million.

With a $2.7 million purse this year, the tournament has a unique team format with three division competitions during the week and a 54-hole better-ball competition starting on April 20. This year’s event will also feature an interactive Troon Family Golf Zone, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and a Military Appreciation Ceremony on Saturday at 5 p.m. The tournament will be broadcast on the Golf Channel on Friday and on CBS on Saturday and Sunday.
