JACKSON, Miss. – The Sanderson Farms Golf Championship may be getting a change of scenery this year. The Mississippi Pro Golf Tournament (PGA) had been played in Annandale since 1994. It may now move to the Country Club of Jackson this November.
“As the title sponsor, Sanderson Farms supports Century Club Charities’ decision to move the tournament from Annandale Golf Club to the Country Club of Jackson. Our support for this decision is based solely on the fact that this move will allow the tournament to raise more money for Friends of Children’s Hospital, the tournament’s main beneficiary,” Sanderson Farms CEO Joe Sanderson.
The Country Club of Jackson will be the third venue in the history of the PGA Tour event, which started in Hattiesburg in 1968. The move still needs to be approved by the PGA Policy Board which meets on April 28.
