RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The Champions Tour will play an event in Richmond next season as part of the 50-and-over circuit's first playoffs.

Sponsored by Dominion Resources, the Dominion Charity Classic will be played Nov. 4-6, 2016, on The Country Club of Virginia's James River Course. The tour said Thursday that the tournament will be the last event before the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship.

The PGA Tour's Championship Management will operate the 54-player, $2 million tournament, and Steve Schoenfeld will serve as executive director.

The tour said full details of the Champions Tour Playoffs will be announced in November at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Arizona.
