Pro golf tour to debut at TPC course in Berthoud

A professional golf tour is coming to the new TPC course at Heron Lakes in Berthoud.

The Web.com Tour announced today that a new tournament will debut on the annual schedule in 2019. The TPC Colorado Championship at Heron Lakes will be contested at newly-opened TPC Colorado in Berthoud. The tournament will be July 8-14 with 156 players competing for a $600,000 purse. A five-year agreement is in place through 2023.

Golfers putt on the 16th green, a par-3, on the TPC Colorado, a ground-up golf course development located in Berthoud. The 800-acre golf community will encompass a master-planned residential neighborhood, an 18-hole championship golf course and clubhouse, a community center, pool, fitness facility and a dynamic lakefront gathering locale.

The Web.com Tour is the developmental tour for the Professional Golf Association tour. Web.com tournaments typically include pro golfers who have not yet reached the PGA tournaments or who have played at the PGA level but haven’t won enough points to stay there.

“We are excited to bring the Web.com Tour to Colorado in conjunction with the highly anticipated debut of TPC Colorado,” said Web.com Tour President Dan Glod. “This state has historically delivered a tremendous amount of PGA Tour support, and we are confident that local businesses, fans and volunteers will enable the TPC Colorado Championship at Heron Lakes to become a great success.”
