NAUCALPAN, Mexico — A golf tournament yanked from a Florida resort owned by Donald Trump unveiled its new home in Mexico on Wednesday Aug. 17.
Sponsor Grupo Salinas said the event will be held in March at the Chapultepec Golf Club outside Mexico City.
The PGA Tour revealed in June that the World Golf Championship event was moving to Mexico after being at Trump National Doral in Miami since 2007. The announcement came nearly a year after the now Republican presidential nominee accused Mexican migrants of bringing drugs to the U.S. and being rapists.
The only mention of Trump at Wednesday’s announcement came when Bernardo Villacecias of Grupo Salinas said that Trump’s comments made it possible for them to bring the tournament to Mexico.
In June, PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said the move was being made because a sponsor could not be found to keep the event in Miami. He conceded that Trump’s ownership might have complicated the sponsor search.
Club de Golf Chapultepec will host next year’s World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, the PGA Tour announced on Wednesday.
The March 2-5 tournament at the historic course near Mexico City will mark the first time the event has been held outside Miami, after it was held at Trump Doral for 10 years.
Australian Adam Scott won this year.
The Mexico Championship is one of four events in the WGC series, created in 1999.
“There will be plenty of tough holes that will keep the leaderboard interesting,” said Rodrigo Lebois, chairman of Club de Golf Chapultepec, which opened in 1928.
