It’s no secret that NBA star Steph Curry’s love for golf has him hoping to host a PGA Tour event at some point during the 2019-20 season. And luckily for Steph, the PGA Tour feels the same way.

Steph Curry might host a PGA Tour event in 2019. Here’s what we know — https://t.co/ufzmfByfMD

The only problem facing the two parties is when and where this would actually take place considering an already jam-packed Tour calendar.


According to a source familiar with the talks around the deal told GOLF.com that Curry, his representatives and the Tour have zeroed in on a venue: the newly renovated South Course at Chuck Corica Gold Complex in Alameda, an island city neighboring Oakland, just across the bay from San Francisco.


Chuck Corica checks off all the boxes in regard to Curry wanting to stay close to his Bay Area home and wanting to stage the tournament somewhere public-accessible as opposed to an exclusive private venue. Not to mention the facility is also centrally located, in the heart of a major metropolitan area and ringed by the kind of infrastructure a gold tournament requires.

Now naturally, this event would have to take place in early October, after the season-opening Safeway Open, in Napa when a number of big-name players are already scheduled to be in that area.

Jeff Austin, Curry’s agent, did not respond immediately to questions seeking further information. But a PGA Tour spokesman did say that partnering with Curry on a tournament would be “an incredible opportunity,” but also added that “we don’t have any news to report at this time, including potential host facilities or tournament dates.” 


We’ll continue to be on the lookout to see if and when Steph will make his debut as a PGA Tour host.
