HILTON HEAD ISLAND, South Carolina (August 25, 2016) – The Heritage Classic Foundation is pleased to announce that Boeing has signed a five-year extension as presenting sponsor of the RBC Heritage. The new agreement runs through 2021.
The RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing debuted in 1969 at Harbour Town Golf Links, a Pete Dye design at the Sea Pines Resort that quickly became a favorite course among PGA TOUR members. In June of 2011, Boeing was introduced as the new presenting sponsor of the PGA TOUR’s annual stop on Hilton Head Island, S.C. RBC was also introduced that same day as the tournament’s new title sponsor. Last month, RBC renewed its commitment to the event by signing a six-year contract which runs through 2023.
“The Heritage Classic Foundation is pleased to continue our partnership with Boeing,” Steve Wilmot, President of the Heritage Classic Foundation said. “Boeing is continuing to make a difference in the State of South Carolina and we are extremely proud that they have chosen once again to support the RBC Heritage. We are very excited about the next five years and the positive impact we will be able to make in the communities we serve.”
PGA TOUR Champions announced today that Boeing has also extended a five-year title sponsorship of the Boeing Classic through 2021. The event’s 2016 edition is set to kick off on Friday morning at host TPC Snoqualmie with 81 players competing for a $2 million purse.
The 49th annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing will take place April 10-16, 2017 over the famed Harbour Town Golf Links. Tournament tickets are on sale at www.rbcheritage.com.
