LIV Golf appears to be dumping Trump courses from schedule

With new details of LIV Golf's 2024 season beginning to emerge, it appears that courses owned by former President Donald Trump have been dumped from the rota.

When the 2023 LIV Golf season draws to a close at Trump National Doral in late October, it could be the last time we see the breakaway Tour held at a property owned by the controversial former President of the United States. At least for a year, that is.

As first reported by Bob Harig of Sports Illustrated, although unofficial yet, details have emerged suggesting that the 2024 LIV Golf season will feature 14 events, with six being hosted in the US, of which none are Trump properties.

With only three venues appearing to be confirmed so far, including Mayakoba in Mexico, the Greenbrier in West Virginia and Valderrama in Spain, early reports suggest that the season-ending finale will be held in South Florida, with eight events set to be held outside the US in Mexico, Jeddah, Hong Kong, Adelaide, Singapore, Valderrama, England and South Korea.

As things stand, Mayakoba will host the season opener, followed by tournaments in Las Vegas, Jeddah and Hong Kong, before the Tour returns to US soil for events in Dallas, Los Angeles and Oklahoma City. 

Going head-to-head with some of the most significant events on the PGA Tour, LIV Los Angeles is currently slated to take place during the same week as the Memorial Tournament, a week before the U.S. Open, with Oklahoma City set to host the LIV Tour the week after, clashing with the Travelers Championship.

The Open at Troon will likely now also be bookended by two LIV Tour events, with Valderrama and London set to take place the week before and the week after the last major of the year.

Clearly not phased by the idea of going up against signature events on the PGA Tour, LIV Golf organisers have selected some serious competition to compete with for the eyes of golf fans around the world.

While these early reports indeed point to concrete inclusions on the 2024 schedule, it should be stated that there is still every chance things will change, as with LIV Golf, nothing is official until it's official.
