The Honda Classic, which is one of Palm Beach County’s marquee sports events, will take place on February 24 – March 1, 2020, at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. This PGA Tour event attracts the world’s best golfers. The tournament will consist of 144 pro golfers competing over 72 holes. Golfers are vying for a total purse of more than $6.8 million.
The Honda Classic recorded 204,487 spectators for the duration of the tournament. The modern-day attendance dwarfs the number of spectators (83,500) who attended The Honda Classic in 2007 when it moved to PGA National Resort & Spa. The tournament broke the 100,000-attendance threshold in 2010.
Palm Beach County receives tremendous national and global media exposure through The Honda Classic. The final round coverage of The Honda Classic in 2019 trailed only 2018’s final round as the most watched Honda Classic in the past 6 years (3.8 million unique households). Television viewership for this event is expected to rise in 2020.
