The PGA TOUR Champions has announced that Oasis Outsourcing, the nation’s largest privately held professional employer organization, will be the title of their Oasis Championship, a premier golf tournament held annually in Boca Raton, Florida. A three-year agreement extends through 2021.
“We are excited that the Oasis Championship will continue bringing world-class golf to Boca Raton,” said Mark Perlberg, President and CEO of Oasis Outsourcing. “This sponsorship continues our tradition of supporting the local community, and we are proud to help keep this key event in the Palm Beaches.”
The 2019 Oasis Championship (February 4-10) is the first full field event of the season, and it will be played at The Old Course at Broken Sound for the 13th consecutive year. The 2018 tournament featured a final-round showdown between Mark Calcavecchia and Boca Raton resident and World Golf Hall of Famer Bernard Langer, Mark completing the wire-to-wire victory for his fourth career win. In all, last year’s field included eight members of the World Golf Hall of Fame and 15 major champions.
Five-time Charles Schwab Cup Champion Langer will be playing again along side Scott McCarron, winner of the 2017 Oasis Championship with an eagle on the final hole, Scott Parel, Colin Montgomerie, Hal Sutton and Jay Haas. “This is always one of my favorite tournaments of the year,” Bernhard said. “It’s great to have my family and friends come out and support me, and it’s a wonderful week for the city.” Bernhard has been Player of the Year on the Champions a record seven times winning 38 career titles on the 50-and-older tour.
“The city of Boca Raton has been instrumental in the event’s growth, and our partnership with Oasis will make this tournament even stronger,” said Miller Brady, President of PGA TOUR Champions.” The players love starting the year in Boca Raton, and the Old Course at Broken Sound is a great venue for our first full-field event of the season. In 2019, the 78-player field will compete for a $1.7 million purse, and all three rounds will be televised on Golf Channel.
“The Oasis Championship makes an incredible impact on the Boca Raton community, with charitable contributions totaling just shy of $2 million since its inception,” said Eddie Carbone, Tournament Director. “With a great local partner in Oasis, we’re looking forward to building on the tournament’s long standing tradition in South Florida.”
The Oasis Championship is offering an advance-purchase Foursome Value Pack that includes four any-day tickets to the tournament and four lunch vouchers for $95. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the gate. Kids 18 and under and fans 70 and older, with proper ID, are admitted free.
Based out of West Palm Beach, Oasis Outsourcing was recently named to the South Florida Business Journal’s Fast 50 list. Oasis was also ranked as the No. 3 private company on the South Florida Business Journal’s annual list of the top 100 private companies in the area.
