In an exciting development for golf enthusiasts in and around Macau, Wynn Macau has announced its collaboration with LIV Golf to host a golf tournament as part of LIV Golf's The International Series next year.

The tournament stop, scheduled for next March 14-17, is set to take place at the scenic Macau Golf and Country Club. While the list of participants has yet to be confirmed, previous stops on the LIV Golf International Series have attracted top-tier golfers, including the likes of Brooks Koepka, Cam Smith, Sergio Garcia, Andy Ogletree and other renowned players.

There is obviously real demand and great golf here, and this is a market that is only going to grow. Bringing some of the world's best players next season can only help cement Macau's place on the international golf market.

Wynn Macau's partnership with LIV Golf reflects the company's commitment to enhancing the overall experience for its patrons and contributing to Macau's reputation as a world-class destination for sports and entertainment. It's also another example of the city's efforts to focus on activity outside of casinos to attract different types of tourism.

LIV Golf Growth Continues

LIV Golf, the innovative golf league that is challenging the PGA's dominance, has raised the stakes for the 2024 season by announcing a staggering $300-million prize purse for its International Series. This financial commitment underscores LIV Golf's dedication to elevating the sport and attracting top talent to its events. The Macau stop includes a purse of almost $2 million.

The 2024 International Series, organized by the Asian Tour, is set to include a notable lineup of events, showcasing the world's best golfers across various courses. The generous prize purse is expected to further intensify competition, drawing in top players eager to secure a share of the substantial winnings.

The tournament series first launched in 2022 and has continued to grow in popularity. The 2023 calendar includes stops in England, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and more. The stops in China and Hong Kong wrapped up earlier this month.
