The first tournament is being held at the El Camaleon Mayakoba Golf Course on Mexico’s Gulf coast. LIV, which is 93% owned by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, will hold 14 tournaments this year — compared to eight last year — culminating in November at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
