The LPGA announced that the best players in women’s golf will head to Grand Rapids, Mich. for the first time in more than a decade to take part in the inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic, which will be held August 7-10, 2014 at Blythefield Country Club.
The $1.5 million Meijer LPGA Classic will host a full-field of 144 players playing 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition. The tournament will be the LPGA Tour’s first stop in Michigan since 2000 when the Oldsmobile Classic in East Lansing, Mich. ended its 9-year run. It will also mark the first annual golf event to take place in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula since 2009 when the PGA Tour last hosted the Buick Open in Grand Blanc.
