Coastal Mississippi – Tournament officials have finalized a private charity pro-am to be held March 24 and 25 in lieu of the 2021 Rapiscan Systems Classic. The Rapiscan Systems Charity Challenge will welcome 26 professional golfers to Fallen Oak and aims to build off the charitable momentum from the record-setting Birdies for Charity campaign in 2020. During the week of the event, tournament officials will announce the proceeds generated through the tournament’s Birdies for Charity program in 2020 and 2021 despite the cancellation.
The Rapiscan Systems Classic presented by Coastal Mississippi will focus on a return to the PGA TOUR Champions schedule in 2022. Held annually at Fallen Oak in Biloxi, Miss., the tournament traditionally takes place in late March and is among the first events on the Tour’s calendar each year.
“We are excited to host the Rapiscan Systems Charity Challenge and continue our mission to give back to the local community with what we expect to be our largest two-year giving total in the tournament’s history,” said Tournament Director Stephen Schoettmer. “We also continue to have constructive meetings with our key tournament partners and hope to announce an official return to play on the PGA TOUR Champions for 2022 sometime in the near future.”
