“We are thrilled to host MSOP in such an exhilarating location, right in the heart of Las Vegas,” said Guillaume Béland, president and general manager of MSOP.

With millions in prize money, participants will compete for their share of the purse on a 20,000-square-foot, 18-hole par-36 putting course created by Nicklaus Design, the worldwide acclaimed golf course design firm. Nicklaus Design, founded by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, has created more than 400 golf courses in 41 countries. The course will feature surfaces from Southwest Greens’ Golden Bear line of turf, available exclusively through certified installers.

“Designing the official putting course for MSOP presented unique challenges and opportunities for Nicklaus Design. This is the first artificial 18-hole course we have designed strictly for putting,” said David Savic, design associate at Nicklaus Design.

“Installing our PRO System on the MSOP stadium course will provide the participants world-class performance that our customers have come to expect,” said Kevin Holinaty, president of Southwest Greens Construction. “We are proud to be a part of such an ambitious undertaking. Working alongside Nicklaus Design allows us to build a unique design concept within a stadium setting – something definitely not seen before.”

“Our vision is to design a sports venue where spectators will have clear views of all 18 holes from every seat in the house,” remarked Jeff Keas, senior principal at Populous. “We are creating an atmosphere that appeals to professional and amateur golfers alike.”

The 2017 MSOP Championship, expected to be the biggest putting tournament in history, will begin October 27th, 2017 in Las Vegas. The event will offer a wide variety of putting tournaments including singles and team events in stroke play and match play formats with exclusive events for women, amateurs and professional golfers.
