Soboba gets golf tournament

New PGA Tournament to be Played on Soboba CourseCome next fall, the Country Club at Soboba Springs will be a stop on the PGA's Nationwide Tour, it was announced today.

The Soboba Classic will offer $1 million in prize money, one of only three events on the tour to do so, joining the Nationwide Tour Players Cup in West Virginia and the Nationwide Tour Championship, which will end the season.

The PGA Tour and the Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians signed a four-year contract, according to tribal information officer Mike Hiles. The club is on the Soboba Indian Reservation in San Jacinto. The PGA Nationwide Tour is a proving ground of sorts to select those eligible to play in the PGA Tour.
