The Williams sisters are getting in on golf.

Now, it has its first team.

Los Angeles Gold Club has been announced as TGL’s first team. It’s owned by Venus and Serena Williams, along with Serena’s husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian will

According to Forbes, details how the deal went down, though it is believed that each team of the league’s 6 teams will own 3% of the league. Ohanian will serve as the team’s control partner per Sportico.

The Reddit co-founder is no stranger to sports ownership. He is already the co-founder and lead investor of the NWSL Angel City FC.

There are a slew of other big-name investors in the TGL. According to Sports Illustrated, these include Steph Curry, Shohei Ohtani, Alex Morgan, Lewis Hamilton, Tony Romo, Chris Paul, and more.

TGL will play 2-hour 18-hole matches on a virtual course inside of an arena. This arena is being built on the campus of Palm Beach State College.

Each team will be comprised of three players and matches will air in prime time. The field is expected to include the likes of Woods, Mcllroy, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, and more.

With the Williams Sisters in, it’ll be interesting to see who else becomes a team owner.
