The LIV Golf League filled the last open spot on its 2024 schedule Wednesday when officials announced that Maridoe Golf Club in Carrollton, Texas, will be the site for its season-ending $50 million LIV Golf Team Championship.

The Dallas-Fort Worth-area course, designed by Steve Smyers and opened in 2017, tips out at 7,817 yards and has previously played host to the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball among various top level amateur events. During the spring of 2020, when COVID stopped play on the PGA Tour, course owner Albert Huddleston hosted tour pros for two 54-hole tournaments that doubled as charity fundraisers won by Scottie Scheffler and Brandon Wu.

“Our LIV Golf players are looking forward to playing in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with its great golf tradition,” said LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman in a press release.

The LIV Golf Team Championship will be held Sept. 20-22, employing the same knockout format it has the past two seasons, when it was played at Trump National Doral in Miami, to produce a team winner for 2024. The competition will be a mix of team stroke play and match play.

All 13 LIV teams will compete, with the top three receiving first-round byes and automatically qualifying for Saturday’s semifinals. The remaining 10 teams will play in five quarterfinal matches on Friday, with matchup determined during a live drawing of team captains during tournament week. The five winners advance to the semifinals, with the semifinal winners competing for the team title on Sunday. The winning team will take home $14 million.

A year ago, Bryson DeChambeau, Paul Casey, Charles Howell III and Anirban Lahiri led Crushers Golf Club to the team title. The Crushers are first in team points thus far in 2024, followed by Legion XIII, the league’s expansion team captained by Jon Rahm. In third place is Ripper Golf Club, the all-Australian squad led by Cameron Smith.

Architect Steve Smyers and his associate Patrick Andrews transformed the old Columbian Club in designing Maridoe Golf Club outside Dallas, which earned third-place in Golf Digest's 2018 ranking of the Best New Courses. Smyers' design can challenge the best players in the world—with the plates tipping out at 7,800 yards—with shaved-off areas around the undulating green complexes but also tempting better players into taking aggressive lines off the tee. The course hosted charitable exhibition tournaments during covid to raise money for the club's charity.
