FALMOUTH, Maine — Shamrock Sports & Entertainment and the PGA TOUR announced Wednesday that the inaugural Live + Work in Maine Open will take place June 21-27, 2021 at Falmouth Country Club.

The Live + Work in Maine Open, part of the Korn Ferry Tour, was originally scheduled for June 2020 but was canceled due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, the five-year contract for the event will now begin in 2021.

The beneficiary of the tournament will be the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. The tournament’s goal is to raise at least $100,000 annually for the hospital through sponsors, ticket sales and special events.

Organizers of the tournament also hosted a separate tournament Wednesday to benefit the hospital, in hopes of generating some money in place of the money that would have been made at the tournament this year. The event raised $50,000.

Today they are also holding a charitable golf tournament to benefit The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. It’s the beneficiary of the tournament and today’s event was to replace the money lost because of the cancellation of the tournament. They raised $50000

“We are excited to move forward with plans to bring this tournament to Maine and to delivering community, charitable and economic impact with the Live + Work in Maine Open tournament at Falmouth Country Club," Brian Corcoran, chief engagement officer of Shamrock Sports & Entertainment, said. “This is going to be a phenomenal event that Mainers and visitors alike will enjoy for many years to come.”
