The Payne’s Valley Cup takes place Sept. 22 and will be broadcast on Golf Channel, beginning at 3 p.m. ET. The Payne’s Valley Golf Course at Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Missouri, is the host site. It is named in honor of Ozarks native Payne Stewart.
“Payne’s Valley is the first public golf course that I have designed. I couldn’t be prouder of how it turned out,” Woods said. “It was an honor for me and my TGR Design team to work with Johnny Morris and Big Cedar Lodge on this spectacular golf course. I am thrilled that it will be featured during the Payne’s Valley Cup.”
The two teams will compete in a match-play format, with a mix of fourball, foursomes and singles, over 18 holes. They will also play the bonus 19th hole, which is a par 3 designed by Big Cedar Lodge owner Johnny Morris. The hole, nicknamed “Big Rock at Payne’s Valley,” offers an island green backed by a limestone outcrop with a waterfall running down its face.via Golf Channel
Oh boy, do we have an exciting mini event today! Tiger is introducing his first Public Course design, Payne’s Valley, in style. A nice little mini Ryder Cup action between arguably two of Europe’s greatest players ever in Rory and Justin Rose. JT and Tiger will be hoping that they can pull out a victory for Team USA!
And judging by the views, the course is in IMPECCABLE shape:
So head on over to Golf Channel today at 3 pm to watch this event! Obviously, I’m rooting for the boys in red, white and blue, but I can’t wait to see these guys try and conquer this impressive course!
