Broken Arrow will officially be the sixth stop on the LIV Golf League tour this year, as the official season schedule was released Monday.

Cedar Ridge Country Club in Broken Arrow will play host to some of the best golfers in the world when the league visits May 12-14.

LIV Golf’s international field will feature many of the sport’s biggest names including major winners Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Sergio Garcia, Patrick Reed, Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen, Graeme McDowell, Martin Kaymer and Charl Schwartzel.

Final rosters for the LIV Golf League will be announced prior to the league launch, when 12 established team franchises will compete in the global 14-event schedule for $405 million in prize purses.

The LIV Golf League will feature 14 events in seven different countries showcasing some of the top championship courses in the world, including a return to five venues that hosted tournaments as part of the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Series: Centurion Club outside London, England (July 7-9), Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in Bedminster, New Jersey (August 11-13), Rich Harvest Farms outside Chicago, Illinois (September 22-24), Trump National Doral Golf Club in Miami, Florida (October 20-22) and Royal Greens Golf & Country Club near Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (November 3-5).

The invitationals will welcome back many of the sport’s biggest stars for the landmark season in the league’s official launch.

In addition, fans in the U.S. will see LIV Golf’s innovative league at Orange County National in Orlando, Florida (March 31-April 2) and at Trump National Golf Club, Washington D.C. (May 26-28).

“We received tremendous feedback globally from fans throughout our beta-test year, with one resounding theme: LIV Golf’s team format, innovations, and festival-like events are delivering a one-of-a-kind golf experience,” said LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman in a statement.

“Last year helped lay the foundation for the future of golf at extraordinary courses that have hosted some of the world’s top competitions. LIV Golf’s schedule features fantastic venues and championship sites for our official league launch that will carry the sport into a new era.”

Cedar Ridge, designed by Joe Finger and opened in 1969, has long been recognized as one of the top golf venues in Oklahoma and a home to numerous Oklahoma Golf Association and state high school championship events. It hosted the 1983 U.S. Women’s Open Championship won by Jan Stephenson by one stroke over Patty Shehan and JoAnne Carner and was the site of an LPGA event from 2004 to 2009, won twice by Annika Sorenstam (2004-2005) and once each by Cristie Kerr (2006), Mi Huyn Kim (2007) and Paula Creamer (2008).
