John Wayne Airport is proud to be a Community Partner for the 25th Annual Hoag Classic and ‘Official Airport’ for tournament players, guests, and attendees for the second consecutive year. As one of the most prestigious and philanthropic events on the PGA Tour Champions, the tournament tees off for exciting golf action at the Newport Beach Country Club on March 4-8, 2020.
John Wayne Airport will sponsor the Tournament’s 15th Hole themed “Tee it High, Let it Fly,” and bring the JWAlive music program out of the Thomas F. Riley Terminal into the Hoag Classic during a ‘Live Music Happy Hour’ event after play on Friday, March 6. Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit JWA’s vintage aviation-themed booth during the 3-day tournament from March 6-8 and take a spin on the prize wheel, learn about the Airport’s Helping Hands special needs assistance program, and new concessions and exciting activities coming to the Terminal in 2020.
The Hoag Classic provides an infusion of travel and tourism dollars into the local economy and is a tremendous fundraiser, generating more than $20 million in its history. The Airport’s participation helps to support Hoag Hospital and other charitable organizations that work to improve the community.
This year’s tournament will host an impressive field of champions, including 2019 Champion Kirk Triplett, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Angel Cabrera, Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer, and John Daly. For more information about the event or to purchase tickets, visit www.hoagclassic.com.
