DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 15, 2020) – The LPGA announced today that the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational will not be held in July 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tournament will return to the Tour schedule in 2021 at Midland Country Club in Midland, Mich. Additionally, Dow has extended its contract with the LPGA, ensuring that the Tour will return to the Great Lakes Bay region for years to come.
“While we are disappointed that the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational will not be held this year, I am excited that our friends at Dow have extended our relationship and will be hosting us in Midland for many years,” said LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan. “As I’ve said since this pandemic started, while we will do all we can to play safely in 2020, the most important thing is to ensure the long-term health of our Tour. We are very thankful to the team at Dow for their ongoing and extended support. The 2019 Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational was an incredible addition to our schedule, and I’m excited to see what they bring to the table in 2021.”
If necessary, further schedule adjustments will be shared when appropriate.
