LIV Golf finalizes 2023 schedule, including 9 new sites and 3 Trump courses
Less than one week after LIV Golf announced its partnership with CW to broadcast its events, we now know where all of those tournaments will take place. The Saudi-backed league has finalized its 14-event schedule, up from the eight it played last year in its inaugural season.
The new schedule was first reported by Sports Illustrated’s Bob Harig.
Until now, LIV had made public just seven of its 14 events for 2023, but Monday’s news adds venues in the U.S., England and Saudi Arabia.
The U.S. locations are Orange County National in Orlando, Fla., Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill., and three Trump properties: D.C., Bedminster and Doral. Tournaments were also announced for the Centurion Club in London, England, and the season-ending team championship at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Of the 14 events, nine are new sites. LIV Golf returns to five courses it visited last year: Centurion Club, Bedminster, Rich Harvest Farms, Royal Greens and Doral. You can check out the complete schedule below.

LIV’s first event kicks off in a month at El Camaleón Golf Course in Mayakoba, a course that was designed by LIV Golf CEO and commissioner Greg Norman, and up until this year hosted a PGA Tour event.
Speaking of Norman, SI also reported that his position likely will strengthen within LIV Golf’s ecosystem with Majed Al-Sorour — LIV Golf’s managing director — stepping down from his post. (Al-Sorour, who also is the CEO of the Saudi Golf Federation, will reportedly stay on LIV Golf’s board of directors.) According to the SI report, LIV won’t fill Al-Sorour’s position, essentially expanding Norman’s role.
Via the TV deal announced last week, LIV’s first-round action will be available only through CW’s app. The final two rounds, on the weekend, will be on TV.
Here’s how LIV’s calendar aligns with the PGA Tour’s schedule, per our Sean Zak. LIV Golf has just one conflicting event that’s played the same week as one of the PGA Tour’s elevated events, which were designed to guarantee the Tour’s top players are competing in the same tournaments throughout the year.
