The Web.com Tour Championship is the year-end golf tournament of the Web.com Tour. It has been played at a variety of courses; in 2016 it will be played at Atlantic Beach Country Club in Atlantic Beach, Florida. Since the 2008 edition, the purse has been $1,000,000, with the winner receiving $180,000.

The format of the tournament is stroke play at 18 holes for four days, a total of 72 holes. Originally, the field consisted of the top 60 players on the money list, all attempting to be among the 25 to earn PGA Tour cards. Beginning in 2013, it will be part of the Web.com Tour Finals and the field will consist of the top 75 players from the Web.Com Tour money list and the non-exempt players ranked 126 to 200 on the PGA Tour's money list at the start of the Finals.[1] Beginning in 2013, 50 PGA Tour cards will be awarded after the event.

It is considered the flagship event of the Web.com Tour, with twenty OWGR points to the winner, compared to sixteen for other Finals events and fourteen for regular season tournaments.
