Valspar Championship TicketsThe Valspar Championship is an annual golf tournament that brings together some of the best players on tour. Originally known as the Tampa Bay Classic and, later, the Chrysler Championship, the PODS Championships, the Transitions Championship and the Tampa Bay Championship, the inaugural event took place in 2000, with a victory by John Huston. It is owned and operated by Copperhead Charities, a non-profit organization that raises money for various causes throughout the Tampa Bay area. In 2014, the charity joined forces with industrial paints and coating company Valspar, which lent its name to the tournament. Past winners have included Vijay Singh, Jordan Spieth and Jim Furyk, while Paul Casey, K.J. Choi and Retief Goosen have all won the tournament twice each. Singh currently holds the tournament record with a score of 266 in 2004. If you want to catch an exciting weekend of golf, then you can purchase Valspar Championship tickets at StubHub.
Who participates in the tournament?The Valspar Championship field changes every year. Both the top players on the tour — as determined by the official rankings — and qualifying players can participate in the tournament, but ultimately it is the choice of the individual golfer whether to join. The players have until the Friday on the week before the start to fully commit to the tournament. Once players are in the tournament, they must exceed a specific score or ranking after the first two rounds to make the cut and continue playing into the final weekend. Players can choose to withdraw or drop out at any time.
When does the Valspar Championship take place?The 2020 Valspar Championship schedule is set for March 16-22. On Sunday, the 15th, before the start of the tournament, there is a 5K run/walk event. The Valspar Championship officially begins with a private event in support of Veterans Alternative on the 16th, but the course will be closed to the public.

What is the Valspar Championship like?The Valspar Championship takes place at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook, an 18-hole par-71 that stretches for almost 7,300 yards. The course features rolling terrain, plenty of water hazards and pine trees lining the fairway. The highlight of the course is the par-4 16th hole nicknamed The Moccasin. It is the longest par-4 in the tournament and, generally, a difficult hole to play. Another highlight is the par-5 11th hole nicknamed O’s Alley. Other activities around the golf club include a Michelob Ultra Club, public seating and hammock areas, a pavilion, a family fun zone, an autograph alley after the 18th hole, a margarita deck, a wine garden and various bars and lounges. Attendees are expected to observe proper golf etiquette during the player’s shots.
