It’s a family-friendly fiesta, complete with a series of great activities and games and a multitude of entertainment options. Here are five reasons to catch the LIV Golf regular-season finale this weekend (even if you’re not a golf fan).

1. Discover innovative experiences like the NERF Kids Zone and the Fan Village

Family-friendly fun is featured at LIV Golf events, and the Fan Village provides the setting for the week’s off-course entertainment. Festivities begin at 10am when gates open to welcome guests of all ages to the various unique activations on site before the tournament’s 12.15pm shotgun start on Friday and Saturday and 12.05pm start on Sunday. Grounds passes allow fans to walk the course, watch the action up close and grant entry to the interactive Fan Village – an immersive area featuring a newly created NERF Kids Zone, providing fun for kids of all ages. Visitors can also enjoy golf-themed games and interactive experiences throughout the day while giant video screens broadcast the live action.

2. It showcases the 2023 regular-season finale and the individual champion title

LIV Golf Jeddah presented by ROSHN marks the 13th and final event of the LIV Golf league regular season. It features 13 major champions with a combined 25 major wins, including reigning PGA Championship winner and five-time major champion Brooks Koepka, 2022 Open champion Cameron Smith, six-time major winner and World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson, 2020 U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau, two-time major winners Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer, and many more.

This tournament signifies the climax of the league’s first full season. Top-ranked players, including Cameron Smith, Talor Gooch and Bryson DeChambeau, will compete for the season-ending individual champion title, while those lower in the rankings face relegation from the “Drop Zone”. LIV Golf Jeddah is the last chance for all 48 players to secure valuable points. The top 24 secure their spot in the league for the next season, while positions 25 to 44 face potential team changes. Players ranked 45 and below in the “Drop Zone” automatically qualify for the League’s promotional tournament for a chance to regain their spot for the 2024 season, ensuring a thrilling climax to this year’s event.
