Three of former President Donald Trump's golf courses will play host to the Saudi-funded LIV Golf circuit this year, continuing the partnership riddled with baggage and backlash.

The tour announced its schedule on Monday, making return visits to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, (Aug. 11-13) and Trump National Doral in Miami (Oct. 20-22), and capping its second season with the team championship at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia, from Nov. 3-5.

Trump faced heavy criticism last year for hosting two events for LIV Golf -- one in Miami and one in Bedminster. LIV Golf is an offshoot league that has caused rifts in the golf world by luring high-profile players away from the mainstay PGA Tour.

LIV lured several popular golfers in its first season, including Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson, and Cameron Smith.

Family members of 9/11 victims decried the venture as an attempt to "sportswash" Saudi Arabia's horrific record of human rights abuses, and protested when LIV hosted a tournament at Bedminster in July.

In response to the backlash, Trump clung to a cloak of plausible deniability, calling into question the role Saudi Arabia truly had in the attack,

"Nobody has gotten to the bottom of 9/11 unfortunately, and they should have," Trump said at the time, calling the people who carried out the terrorist attack "maniacs that did that horrible thing to our city, to our country, to the world."

Fifteen of the 19 attackers on 9/11 were Saudi nationals. The 9/11 Families United group said in a statement at the time that a report implicated "numerous Saudi government officials, in a coordinated effort to mobilize an essential support network for the first arriving 9/11 hijackers, Nawaf al Hazmi and Khalid al Mihdhar."

Many involved with the league, including media partners, have faced sharp backlash for their association with LIV. After a year of operation with no TV deal, a nonstarter for any league with aspirations as lofty as LIV, the league announced a meager contract with the television network CW, which will provide coverage of the second and third rounds.

LIV's format differs from the PGA Tour in that it features three rounds instead of four, uses shotgun starts instead of traditional staggered starts, and has no cuts.

Trump has expressed no public misgivings about his company's ties to the league, telling reporters at the league's 2022 championship that "the Saudis have done a fantastic job." Trump later took aim at the PGA Tour, which has banned all of the golfers who defected to LIV.

"The PGA is being destroyed by the PGA," Trump told reporters. "They were stupid, and they shouldn't be stupid."

Other U.S. stops on this year's schedule include Tucson (March 17-19), Orlando (March 31-April 2), Tulsa (May 12-14), White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. (Aug. 4-6), and Chicago (Sept. 22-24). Additional events will take place in Australia, Singapore, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
