Annual Utah Championship
Korn Ferry Tour's Utah Championship presented by Zions Bank & Intermountain Health — formerly known as the Utah Classic — is one of the original tournaments of the 1990 Ben Hogan Tour. It has become a premier golf tournament in the Salt Lake City area providing a way to give back to the community.
Utah Championship is organized and hosted by the Utah Sports Commission, whose mission is to help enhance Utah’s economy, image and quality of life through the attraction, promotion and development of national and international sports, and to be a catalyst for Utah in its Olympic legacy efforts. For more information, visit Utah Sports Commission.
Utah Championship has been held every year since 1990 (except for 1997 and 1998). The first seven golf tournaments (1990–1996) were played at Riverside Country Club in Provo and the following sixteen (1999–2014) were hosted by Willow Creek Country Club in Sandy. The tournament briefly moved (2015-2016) to Thanksgiving Point Golf Club in Lehi, a course designed by golf legend Johnny Miller. In 2017, the tournament found its current home at Oakridge Country Club in Farmington, Utah.
The tournament has produced a strong list of champions since it debuted in 1990, including inaugural winner John Daly (1990), Zach Johnson (2003) and Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year Patton Kizzire (2015).
Every year the list of notable alumni grows: Tony Finau (Class of 2014) has become one of the top players on the PGA TOUR and Cameron Champ (2018 Utah Champion) won the Sanderson Farms Championship only three months after getting his PGA TOUR card.
As made evident by Utah Championship alumni, the Korn Ferry Tour is the path to the PGA TOUR and it all starts here.
