The Chubb Classic Golf Tournament: Shooting Photos One Swing at a Time

THE GIG ~ Shooting the CHUBB CLASSIC TOURNAMENT

The Chubb Classic is truly a classic golf tournament, with a history going back over thirty years, to 1988. It takes place at the renowned Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, running from February 12-18, 2024. I shot this event before in 2022 and the site is absolutely spectacular, with two different courses and the Ritz-Carlton Naples Tiburon hotel as a backdrop.


Free admission will be offered to members of the military, first responders and front-line healthcare workers (doctors and nurses) including a plus one, all courtesy of tournament sponsor SERVPRO. The company is also hosting the SERVPRO Hero Outpost with a special hospitality area with food and drink freebies for guests.


The Chubb has had dozens of Hall of Fame golfers compete over the years, including big names like Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples, Lee Trevino and Gary Player. This year, Hall-of-Famer (and defending champion) Bernard Langer is aiming toward his six Chubb Classic win. This tournament is the longest-standing PGA TOUR Champions event held in one metro area, and is the flagship tourney in Naples for the PGA TOUR Champions. The Naples/Marco Island/Everglades area is known as the Paradise Coast and has tons of leisure options off the course.
