I hope this letter finds you and your family well. It is hard to believe that the last time we were all together was 21 months ago. We have been working hard during the last year to bring a memorable event to our community in 2021.
Broome County Community Charities, Inc. is excited to announce that the DICK’S Sporting Goods Open will take place June 28th-July 4th, 2021 with limited spectators on-site, and various health and safety protocols in place. Working with officials from Broome County, the State of New York and the PGA TOUR Champions, Broome Charities has developed a tournament plan that includes a limited number of sponsors. Health and safety remain our number one priority and the tournament has implemented a number of new protocols to keep everyone safe during the reimagined event.
The fan guide to safety policies for the 2021 event are listed at dsgopen.com/COVID19.
Though it may not be how we envisioned celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Professional Golf in Broome County, it is how we must operate due to the pandemic and requirements from NYS. We are asking for everyone’s patience and understanding for 2021 as we bridge the gap to 2022 when we can get back the DICK’S Sporting Goods Open we all know and love.
The economics of this tournament will need to adapt this year. Though we will have a limited number of fans, the costs of hosting the event will remain consistent. As a valued partner of the DICK’S Sporting Goods Open, we will be reaching out to you in the next few weeks to discuss 2021 opportunities.
We can’t wait to celebrate our past, our present and our future with you as we make a charitable impact in our community!
