The Barbasol Championship will be held for the third time, July 7 – 10, 2022 at Keene Trace Golf Club’s Champions course. In 2018, The Barbasol Championship became the first PGA TOUR tournament to be held in Kentucky since the Kentucky Derby Open was contested in Louisville from 1957-59. Gary Player claimed his first TOUR victory in the 1958 event.
The Arthur Hills-designed Champions course, located approximately 10 miles from downtown Lexington, opened in 1988 and has played host to a number of championships, including the 1994 USGA Senior Amateur, the 1993 NCAA Division One Men’s Championship, the Southeastern Conference Men’s and Women’s Championships, the Women’s Western Open, the Kentucky State Amateur and multiple Kentucky Opens. It consistently has been ranked as one of the best courses in Kentucky.
The Barbasol Championship was won by Troy Merritt in 2018, Jim Herman in 2019, and Seamus Power in 2021.
