Choctaw Casinos named presenting sponsor of ClubCorp Classic

Choctaw Casinos & Resorts announced a four-year collaboration with Las Colinas Country Club, which will serve as the presenting sponsor of the inaugural ClubCorp Classic.

This will include additions to the gaming venue’s fan experience, on- and off-site promotional activations, and charitable activities benefiting local organizations.

The ClubCorp Classic

The tournament, which runs from April 19-24, will bring together PGA Tour winners and sports and entertainment personalities in different games and an amateur match in which ClubCorp members will compete alongside the pros and celebrities.

Among the confirmed celebrities are Annika Sorenstam, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame and 72-time LPGA winner; Roger Clemens, a pro football hall of fame wide receiver and Heisman Trophy winner; Kevin Millar, MLB Network analyst and 12-year MLB standout; and stars from the music and entertainment world, including Larry the Cable Guy, Brian Baumgartner, and Colt Ford.

The ClubCorp Classic will benefit Momentous Institute, a North Texas nonprofit dedicated to promoting and rehabilitating children’s social and emotional health to reach their full potential. Choctaw Casinos & Resorts are owned and run by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, which owns and operates several additional facilities in south-eastern Oklahoma, including Durant, Grant, Pocola, Idabel, Broken Bow, McAlester, Stigler, and Stringtown.
