Allianz Championship

golf in AventuraAllianz Life Insurance Company of North America has been negotiating with Turnberry Isle to move the Allianz Championship to Aventura from Boca Raton, Florida and an announcement on the agreement is expected shortly.

Allianz, a national insurance company that is part of the global financial services group Allianz SE, has been the sponsor of the tournament since 2001, when it began in Des Moines, Iowa, before moving to Boca Raton.

Events such as this are used to treat employees and clients of sponsors, so lack of a hotel at The Old Course at Broken Sound in Boca Raton was a major drawback.

“They have always wanted a resort on the course because they bring in agents from all around the country,” Allianz Championship media director Rene Nunez said.

The Allianz Championship Pro-Am is a Champions Tour (age 50 and older) event and broadcast by The Golf Channel.
