 For the second year in a row, the Dominion Energy Charity Classic (DECC) has been voted by PGA TOUR Champions players as their favorite event in which to play.
The 2017 Players Award was presented on Thursday, December 7 at the PGA TOUR’s Tournament Meetings in Boca Raton, Fla. The PGA TOUR Champions membership votes on the Players Award each year. The tournament was also the recipient of this award in 2016 after a standout performance in its inaugural year.
“The Dominion Energy Charity Classic demonstrated the value of having an engaged local title sponsor in Dominion Energy as well as a welcoming host in The Country Club of Virginia,” said PGA TOUR Champions President Greg McLaughlin. “For two years in a row, our players have bestowed this prestigious honor on one of our youngest events, and it’s a testament to the tireless efforts put forth by our tremendous partners in the Richmond market.”
“In just two years, the sponsors, volunteers, CCV and the Richmond community have made the Dominion Energy Charity Classic one of the best golf tournaments anywhere,” said Thomas F. Farrell, II, Dominion Energy’s chairman, president and chief executive officer.
“We are pleased that not only the patrons but also the players have enjoyed their time here, and we promise to put on an even better event next year.”
The annual Players Award represents recognition for a tournament that goes above and beyond in the experience provided to PGA TOUR Champions players. Notable efforts from the 2017 Dominion Energy Charity Classic included:
  • Significant engagement from title sponsor Dominion Energy including representation on all volunteer committees and a grounds admission program available to all company employees.
  • The Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course, a 1928 William Flynn design, as host venue.
  • Hospitality demonstrated by The Country Club of Virginia members and staff.
  • Outstanding community engagement and spectator attendance, as well as extensive year-round coverage of the event from Richmond-area media outlets.
  • Expansive build out of grandstands and hospitality marquees, specifically on holes 16 and 18, which allowed for the development, look and feel of Playoff drama.
“It’s a tremendous honor to receive the Players Award in each of our first two years as a PGA TOUR Champions event,” said Executive Director Steve Schoenfeld. “Dominion Energy and The Country Club of Virginia have been wonderful partners for this tournament, and the Richmond community has embraced us with unbelievable enthusiasm. Our hope is to continue building on 2016 and 2017, while continuing our efforts to create a lasting community impact in the region.”
In its second year, the Dominion Energy Charity Classic was repositioned as the first of three events in the Charles Schwab Cup Playoffs, and hosted the top 72 players in the standings. The event produced one of the year’s most exciting finishes, with Bernhard Langer sinking an 18-foot eagle putt on his 54th hole for his sixth victory of the 2017 season.
The Dominion Energy Charity Classic will remain the first of three events in 2018 and is set to return to The Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course the week of October 15-21.
