Castle Pines Golf Club, site of a PGA Tour event for 21 years, will once again host a stop on the tour with the 2024 BMW Championship to be played at the Jack Nicklaus course outside of Denver.
The PGA Tour announced the decision Wednesday at a press conference featuring course designer Jack Nicklaus and Denver Broncos Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway.
Hosted by the Western Golf Association, the BMW Championship is the second of three FedEx Cup playoff events. It includes the top 70 in the standings, with only the top 30 at the end of the tournament advancing to the circuit championship. The tournament has moved several times, but has most often been held in the Chicago area, with Olympia Fields, Conway Farms and Cog Hill serving as former host sites.
This year’s BMW Championship will be held at Wilmington Golf Club in Delaware.
Castle Pines hosted The International from 1986 to 2006. The tournament was unique at the time, using a modified stableford score which is now used at the PGA Tour’s Barracuda Championship. The course was also unique in that it sits over 6,000 feet in elevation, with golfers traditionally having to explore the nearly 7,800 yard course to accommodate their ball traveling further in elevation.
