Here’s to the Week Ahead: Sep. 28-Oct. 4
It’s the first full week of fall – and the weather to go with it is blowing in this week. It’ll be a fine time to take advantage of these JXN events, some of them outdoors.
Sanderson Farms Championship – Country Club of Jackson – Monday – Sunday
Welcome the PGA to JXN this week, sans spectators.
The Sanderson Farms Championship is an annual stop on the PGA TOUR hosted by Century Club Charities, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote the game of golf for the benefit of charity. The tournament’s primary beneficiary is Friends of Children’s Hospital. The tournament has been part of the PGA TOUR schedule since 1968 and is now in its 10th year as a part of the FedExCup.
The Pro-Ams portion had been up in the air but, adhering to social distancing and safety guidelines set by the PGA TOUR, the State of Mississippi, and the City of Jackson, will proceed, Monday and Wednesday.
