SEBRING, Fla. – The Inaugural Citrus Golf Trail Open has become an even bigger event, partnering with the Minor League Golf Tour to create a unique professional event to wrap up the 2021 schedule and prepare the players for the 2022 season.

Set for Nov. 30-Dec. 2, the 54-hole event will feature $25,000 in added sponsor money to the prize purse for the event as the competitors battle for the coveted orange jacket on the Deer Run course at Sun ‘N Lake Golf Club in Sebring Florida.

“The Minor League Golf Tour is proud to partner with Visit Sebring and Airstream Ventures on making the Citrus Golf Trail Open a big event in its first year,” said Scott Turner, Director of Tournament Operations for the Citrus Golf Trail.  “Our commitment is to provide our players a competitive platform to sharpen their game to excel in their career.  This event is on a PGA Tour qualifying school caliber course with a purse that will make a big impact for the winner.”

“Thanks to our friends at the Minor League Golf Tour, we are able to take the Citrus Golf Trail Open and elevate it in a major way for the first year,” said Joel Lamp, senior director of tourism and events for Airstream Ventures.  “We look forward to welcoming all the players to Sebring for a great week of competition and see who will be wearing the Citrus Coat after the final round.”

The Citrus Golf Trail is comprised of seven golf courses at six golf clubs and a partner hotel to collectively promote the Sebring area’s quality golf courses that offer affordable golf with a unique playing experience that visiting golfers cannot find in the typical golf resort atmosphere.
