The North Mississippi Classic

The Country Club of Oxford will host the North Mississippi Classic April 16-22 with 156 players competing for a $550,000 purse. The North Mississippi Classic will be the third PGA TOUR-sanctioned event to be held annually in Mississippi, joining the PGA TOUR’s Sanderson Farms Championship and the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic on PGA TOUR Champions. Mississippi is one of only five states to host an annual tournament on all three tours, with California, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina rounding out the list.

“We are excited to bring the North Mississippi Classic to Oxford as we continue to grow the Tour with new events in strong markets,” said Dan Glod, President, Tour. “This community has demonstrated a passion for golf, and we are excited about the opportunity to partner with Country Club of Oxford and the Century Club, which has a proven tournament team that operates a very successful PGA TOUR event.  We are confident this partnership will allow us to engage fans, volunteers and local businesses as we look to cement our roots in North Mississippi and increase our charitable impact.”
