ESPN confirmed Monday that the LIV Golf Leagues team champion will move from Trump National Doral in Miami, to Saudi Arabia in November.

The $50 million team championship will be played at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Jeddah on Nov. 3-5, according to a schedule that will soon be announced by LIV Golf.

Saudi Arabias Public Investment Fund funds LIV Golf.

The 2022 event was hosted at Trump National Doral in October, during LIVs inaugural season. Former President Donald Trump is the owner of the course. He attended the event and took part in the pro-am tournament.

LIV Golf announced that its players would compete to win $405 million in 14 tournaments in this season. This is $150 million more then they won in eight events back in 2022.

LIV Golfs 2023 schedule includes three Trump-owned courses: Trump National Golf Club outside Washington, D.C. (May 26,-28), Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster, New Jersey, (Aug.11-13), and Trump National Doral, (Oct.20-22).

The 2023 schedule also includes a new tournament at Orange County National, Orlando, Florida (March 31 – April 2). In the past, Orange County National hosted Korn Ferry Tour events and PGA Tour Q school events. The tournament will be played the week before Masters, the first major championship in the season.

LIV Golf will also be returning to Centurion Club outside London (July 9-9), the site of its inaugural June event, and Rich Harvest Farms, Sugar Grove, Illinois (Sept 22-24). The circuit will not host events in Boston, Oregon, or Portland, Oregon like it did in 2022.

LIV Golf had previously announced the locations and dates of seven of its tournaments in 2023. The 2023 schedule begins at El Camaleon Golf Club, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico on February 24-26. It also announced tournaments to be held in Arizona (March 17-19), Australia, Singapore (April 21-22), Singapore (April 28-30), Oklahoma (12-14), Spain (June 30-July 2, and West Virginia (August 4-6).
