The host venue of the inaugural event on the Saudi-backed LIV Golf, is set to be replaced.

According to a report by the Telegraph, the Centurion Club, in St Albans, will no longer play a part in Greg Norman’s circuit moving forward.

That is because the exclusive JCB Golf and Country Club is alleged to be named as part of the 2024 schedule.

While it remains unclear why Centurion is being replaced, the report suggests that LIV could return to its landmark course in the future.

Centurion played host to LIV Golf London, the league’s first-ever event in June 2022. The Telegraph understands that the connections between the club and the startup remain strong.

The new venue was established four years ago by Lord Bamford, a billionaire businessman who is the chairman of the construction and agricultural equipment manufacturer.

Lord Bamford’s business has hosted a tournament for the last two years on the Legends Tour, the senior circuit for the DP World Tour.

LIV chairman and governor of PIF (Public Investment Fund) Yasir Al-Rumayyan, was invited to play in last week’s Dunhill Links in Scotland.

The DP World Tour event concluded today after weather delays, as Al-Rumayyan went out in the same group as R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers.

Ahead of changes to next season, the Uttoxeter club will be one of several new stages, as LIV prepares to announce its calendar for 2024.

New international stops are set to be introduced in Hong Kong and South Korea.

They would be accompanied by events in Adelaide, Valderrama, Mexico, Singapore and Jeddah.

It would mean the majority of tournaments would take place outside of the US, as eight of 14 events in 2023 would reduce to six.
