Sanderson Farms Championship will again be serving up the South’s main course of greens, birdies and sweet tea when Mississippi’s only professional golf tournament returns in November to the Country Club of Jackson.

The tournament, to be held November 2 – 8, will kick off with a series of special events for professional-amateur pairings, youth golfers and a Womens Day luncheon featuring Jenna Bush Hager​. The Pro-Am tournament is Wednesday, November 4 with the first round play of PGA competition beginning at 6:45 on Thursday morning. The championship trophy presentation is scheduled for Sunday, November 8 at 3:30 p.m. 

Founded in 1968 as the Magnolia Classic in Hattiesburg, the Sanderson Farms Championship is a hospitable and philanthropic showcase for the entire State of Mississippi.

“Last year was a historic year for the tournament,” said Steve Jent, the tournament’s executive director. In 2014, the tournament more than doubled the previous year’s donation record by raising more than $1.1 million for the Friends of Children’s Hospital to benefit Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children.  “This significant amount indicates more than a record-breaking contribution by the tournament. It also indicates a new era for the Championship as a premier stop of the PGA Tour.”

Joe  Sanderson, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Sanderson Farms, said the “primary reason this tournament exists” is to raise money for Batson and other Mississippi charities and non-profit organizations in the State.

Sponsor Sanderson Farms is one of the nation's leading food corporations and is based in Mississippi, in Laurel. The tournament's host organization, Century Club Charities, is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is promoting the game of golf for the benefit of charity. The Sanderson Farms Championship's primary charity is Friends of Children's Hospital, a 501(c)(3) benefitting the Blair E.

The location switch is the lastest in a series of forward moves; including Sanderson Farms' three-year commitment through 2016, an increase in the purse from $3 million to $4 million and a date change from summer back to the fall.
