The Dell Technologies Match Play isn’t just a can’t miss sporting and social event, it also creates an incredible impact in the local community. The tournament has exceeded $6 million in charitable contributions to the Greater Austin area since moving to Austin Country Club in 2016. That amount brings the all-time total for the tournament’s 23-year history to over $21 million and is part of the more than $62 million raised for global charities since the advent of the World Golf Championships in 1999. The funds donated were once again made possible through the unwavering support of the community and have directly benefitted Dell Children’s, First Tee—Greater Austin and several other organizations throughout the years.
