The Professional Golfers' Association of America has chosen Tuscany for its centennial celebrations, taking place from September 6 to 9. For the occasion, members will play at three top Tuscan golf courses – Golf Club Castelfalfi, UNA Poggio dei Medici Golf Club and Montecatini Golf Club – and partake in exclusive social events. Proceeds will go to the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and Celebrity Fight Night – Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, both of which provide assistance to people living with Parkinson's disease and their families.

The key event is a three-day tournament that opens with a September 7 stop at Golf Club Castelfalfi. Prominent entrepreneurs, athletes, entertainers, journalists and members of the finance industry will compete on the resort's challenging 18-hole Mountain Course. The day will close with dinner at La Rocca, Castelfalfi's restaurant, with a special menu designed by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Michele Rinaldi.

Celebrations will conclude with a gala at Villa Rospigliosi in Lamporecchio, open to tournament participants. Confirmed A-list guests include Charlize Theron, John Travolta, Bo Derek and Pierce Brosnan, among others.
