Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will square off in a match play event on Friday, Nov. 23 for a pay-per-view match the day after Thanksgiving. Viewers will be available to buy the event for $19.99, but where will the matchup take place?

Here's what you need to know. 

The location:

The Thanksgiving-adjacent match will be held in Las Vegas, the site of Woods's first-career PGA Tour victory. Woods claimed the Las Vegas Invitational Crown in 1996 and finished the five-round tournament at 27-under. 

The course:

Shadow Creek Golf Course will host the match-play event. It is located 13 miles from the Las Vegas strip. It is owned by Steve Wynn and opened in 1990. The par-72 course stretches 7,560 yards. Don't expect to play there for cheap, though. Green fees run upwards of $500 and are available only to those who books a room at an MGM Las Vegas property.

Course facts:  

Architect Tom Fazio's course shows little sign of the Nevada desert and built a course flush with pine trees, creeks and lakes. The longest hole is the 18th, a 564-yard, par-5. Before the behemoth final hole is a 164-yard par-3.
