Albertsons LLC announced Monday that it will continue to sponsor the Boise Open for the next three years.
"This is great news for the volunteers, charities, the players, and the community," said Jeff Sanders, the executive director of the promotions company producing the Boise Open. "We're excited to keep infusing money to charity and to the community itself."
The Boise Open has given over $14 million to charities since the inaugural event in 1990. The tournament isn't just a benefit to Boise- it also serves as a stepping stone for the players on the Web.Com Tour.
"When you come out of college and qualify for the tour, you don't qualify for the PGA Tour directly anymore," explained Sanders. "You qualify to play the Web.com tour. So our product just got a lot better, and all the great players coming from around the world have to come through Boise now on their way to the PGA Tour."
Hillcrest Country Club will also remain the host to the tourney, which is one of the original four tournaments still on the Web.com schedule.
The 24th incarnation of the Boise Open will be held July 22-28.
