The Heritage Classic Foundation recently announced that Boeing has signed a five-year extension as presenting sponsor of the RBC Heritage. The new agreement runs through 2021. The tournament now known as the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing debuted in 1969 at Harbour Town Golf Links, a Pete Dye design at the Sea Pines Resort that quickly became a favorite course among PGA Tour members.
In June 2011, Boeing was introduced as the new presenting sponsor of the PGA Tour’s annual stop on Hilton Head Island. RBC was also introduced that same day as the tournament’s new title sponsor. RBC has also renewed its commitment to the event by signing a six-year contract that takes effect in 2018 and runs through 2023.
“The Heritage Classic Foundation is pleased to continue our partnership with Boeing,” said Steve Wilmot, president of the Heritage Classic Foundation. “Boeing is continuing to make a difference in the State of South Carolina and we are extremely proud that they have chosen once again to support the RBC Heritage. We are very excited about the next five years and the positive impact we will be able to make in the communities we serve.”
The 49th annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing will take place April 10-16 at the famed Harbour Town Golf Links. Tournament tickets are on sale at www.rbcheritage.com.
