Uppleger stated, “We are formally announcing today the 2023 World Golf Championship Dell Technologies Match Play is the last playing of the event here in Austin Country Club and will not be included on either the 2024 or moving forward”

Now is the time to enter a match-play major Open Championship for men and women

“The Austin Country Club has been a great venue for the event.

“I was told that you needed three components for a successful event. You had to have a title sponsor active, a country club engaged, and a support community. This event has exceeded all expectations since we started in 2016.

Uppleger announced that there will not be a match-play event on the PGA Tour’s schedule next year.

Golfweek reported in February that would be closing down after this year’s. Its place in the 2024 schedule is usually in March at the Florida Swing’s back end. The Cadence Bank Houston Open is expected to fill it, unless the bank prefers a date in April/early May as part of a shuffling.

Uppleger stated Monday that the Tour would consider Austin if the circumstances were right. The tournament’s seven-year history has seen the WGC event be one of the most popular on Tour. With the beautiful Pennybacker Bridge overlooking the Colorado River, Austin Country Club has become one of the most memorable venues on the circuit.

Since 2016, when Dell became the title sponsor, Austin Country Club has hosted Match Play. The World Golf Championships were the top-ranking tournaments in golf at the time. They were behind the four majors, and the Players Championship, which was the Tour’s flagship event.

We would definitely consider Austin, Texas in the future. Although it’s not on our ’24 calendar, we can clearly see the success that has been had here. It’s clear that our team would be interested in that .”
