Prepare to tee off as the golfing icons descend once again upon the picturesque landscapes of Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage. The stage is set from March 29th to 31st, 2024, as the PGA Tour's Champions' Galleri Classic unfolds in all its glory. Tee up to witness legendary shots, intense rivalries, and triumphant moments where champions are crowned amidst the palm-lined fairways and sun-kissed greens.

Named for sponsor GRAIL’s multi-cancer early detection test, the Galleri’s field of 78 players will again duel on the famed Dinah Shore Tournament Course; vying for top honors and a $2.2 million purse, the tour’s 50-plus set plays three rounds (Friday-Sunday) sans a cut line. After a sparkling debut event in 2023 which saw 13-time PGA Tour champ (and 2001 PGA Championship winner) David Toms take the inaugural podium in wire-to-wire fashion, a field flush with golf luminaries is again back in the desert to show that they’ve still got ample game.

In concert with the event’s popular Fan Zone, a host of ticketing options greets Galleri guests, including the modest pricing of just $30 for a single-day grounds ticket. To better the deal: children 15 years old and younger are granted free grounds admission when accompanying a ticketed adult. In addition, the Galleri thanks those for their service by offering gratis grounds tickets to veterans, active, reserved, and retired military personnel, and up to two guests of said military member.

Attendees seeking enhanced Galleri action will want to tee up Weekly Grounds passes (Friday-Sunday), while fans aiming for further fun should check out Clubhouse Tickets, which present an upgraded venue opportunity with table services for drink & dine purchases.

A full-on Galleri experience can be found via the Champions Club, which offers access to the private, open-air venue and a prime perch to view the action on the Dinah Shore Course's par-5, island green 18th hole. Holder of the Champions Club passes couple the view with a premier hospitality selection of included food and a full bar.

And with the tournament’s final round held on Easter Sunday (March 31), fans may partake in a 6:30 a.m. service in the bleachers around the 18th green, before an Easter egg hunt for kids (with a reported 2,000 candy-filled eggs to be discovered) will get underway at the Mission Hills driving range at Noon.

Prepare for an electrifying showdown as the legends converge once again on the greens of Greater Palm Springs! The chase for a repeat crown by Toms is about to ignite, but with a pack of golfing legends hot on his trail, victory is far from guaranteed. Among the contenders is the illustrious Fred Couples, whose commanding presence drew thunderous applause in 2023, while the esteemed Galleri ambassador Steve Stricker, hailed as the PGA Tour Champions Player of the Year, returns to stake his claim on the coveted title.

But the competition only intensifies with the return of Steven Alker, a force to be reckoned with after clinching Player of the Year honors and the Charles Schwab Cup in 2022. With an impressive track record boasting eight Champions Tour victories, including a recent triumph at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship, Alker is primed for another shot at glory.

Adding to the star-studded lineup is the legendary Ernie Els, fondly known as "The Big Easy," whose magnetic charisma promises to light up the course. And let's not forget the colorful characters of the sport, including the irrepressible John Daly, alongside former world No. 1s David Duval and Tom Lehman, each bringing their brand of excitement to the tournament.

As anticipation reaches a fever pitch, the roster expands with the inclusion of World Golf Hall of Famers Vijay Singh and Retief Goosen, as well as seasoned pros Jerry Kelly and Stephen Ames, fresh off his triumphant victory at the Chubb Classic. With such a star-studded lineup, the stage is set for a golfing extravaganza unlike any other, where every swing, every putt, and every moment promises to be nothing short of legendary.
