About the Barracuda Championship PGA Golf Tournament

The 19th annual Barracuda Championship will be from Monday, July 31 through Sunday, August 6, 2017. This PGA Tour golf tournament is held at Montrêux Golf & Country Club in the Galena area of south Reno. Barracuda Championship tournament play begins on Thursday, August 3, following the Reno Open.

The Barracuda Championship is a big-time professional sports event. It is the only PGA Tour event played in Reno and one of only 45 PGA Tour golf tournaments in the world.

Top PGA pro golfers play in the Barracuda Championship. Past winners have included Kirk Triplett, Vaughn Taylor, John Cook, Will MacKenzie, John Rollins, Matt Bettencourt, and the 2016 champion Greg Chalmers.

There will be 132 top PGA players competing for a purse of $3.3 million at the 2017 Barracuda Championship. The Barracuda Championship is the only PGA Tour event using the Modified Stableford scoring format, which encourages more aggressive and exciting play.

The Barracuda Championship is preceded by the Reno Open golf tournament, which plays before the Barracuda Championship. Golfers compete for cash, with the 1st Place Grand Prize being an exemption into the 2017 Barracuda Championship.
