LPGA Event Returns to Old American Golf Club Sept 28-Oct 4
The Volunteers of America Classic is pleased to announce event dates and an increased prize purse for the 2020 tournament. The only official LPGA Tournament event in the state of Texas, the Volunteers of America Classic will return to Old American Golf Club in TheColony, Texas Sept. 28-Oct. 4, 2020. Featuring 120 of the world’s best female golfers in a four-day stroke-play event vying for a $1.4million purse, this year’s purse marks a $100,000 increase as part of Volunteers of America’s title partnership.
“We’re looking forward to building on the success of last year’s event with a larger prize purse and great fan support for the Volunteers of America Classic,” Volunteers of America National President & CEO Mike King said. “This event helps highlight the tremendous growth of women’s golf, while also introducing new people to the great work done by our organization to help those most in need.”
The LPGA players are also looking forward to returning to Texas next fall and competing for an even higher purse.
“Being able to compete in my hometown is so special to me,” Gerina Pillar said. “We can’t thank VOA enough for their commitment to women’s golf and growing the game. It is so exciting to be playing for more money and playing in front of my family and friends.”
Spectators can expect to see local Texas players in the field once again, including 2019 Volunteers of America Classic champion Cheyenne Knight.
“I’m very excited to defend my title in my home state at the Old American Golf Club,” Knight said. “The tournament is very special to me and has been since my amateur playing days. Winning my first LPGA Tour title there was a dream come true, and I couldn’t have imagined that week any better. I can’t wait to return and play in another successful event in The Colony.”
