Creighton Farms, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, will again host the final 36 holes of competition. Southworth Development, with headquarters in Newton, Mass., is now in its third year of title sponsorship.

“The PGA of America has been blessed to have a committed title sponsor and outstanding host venues in Northern Virginia to present this national championship for an accomplished field of senior PGA Professionals,” said PGA of America President Ted Bishop. “The Southworth Senior PGA Professional National Championship continues a popular tradition for our member professionals. Last year’s finale ranked among the best clutch shots anywhere in golf. We anticipate another great Championship this fall.”

Last year at Creighton Farms, Jim Woodward of Oklahoma City, Okla., secured a one-stroke victory by hitting a career approach shot on the par-5 18th hole to within tap-in range for an eagle.

Creighton Farms, a par-72, 7,410-yard layout that opened in 2008, was one of two private courses in the world to achieve recognition by Golf Digest, GOLF Magazine, and Travel Leisure Golf in the same season. In 2009, Golfweek selected Creighton Farms among its “Best New Private Golf Courses.” Creighton Farms reflects the Nicklaus trademark of a challenging design, focusing on course management strategy and precision rather than power.

“We are delighted that River Creek and ClubCorp will again join Southworth Development and Creighton Farms in hosting the Southworth Senior PGA Professional National Championship,” said David Southworth, president and CEO of Southworth Development. “These two exceptional courses will provide players with many distinct challenges as they compete for this prestigious title. I’m sure it’s going to be an enjoyable and memorable week for everyone.”
