The Miami Heat has decided to pull its charity golf tournament from President Trump’s Doral golf resort and will move it elsewhere next year, a team spokesman confirmed on Tuesday.

The Heat would not comment as to the reason for the move, but the Miami Herald learned the decision was not made by the players or anyone on the team. The Washington Post first reported the news.

The annual tournament, which benefits the Miami Heat Charitable Fund and has been administered by the Miami Foundation, has been held at Trump’s Doral golf resort every summer since at least 2014 according to the Washington Post. The team has also held the event at Doral in prior years, before Trump bought the course out of bankruptcy in 2012.

“I’m supportive of the decision and I’m supportive of this organization,” captain Udonis Haslem said Tuesday when asked by The Herald about the charity golf event being moved from Trump’s golf resort.
