Cincinnati’s history with women’s professional golf dates back to 1963 when Kenwood Country Club hosted the U.S. Women’s Open. From 1978 to 1989, Cincinnati hosted the LPGA Championship at the Golf Center at Kings Island where Lopez won three times on the Jack Nicklaus-designed course, winning in 1978, 1985, and 1989. The LPGA’s developmental tour, the Epson Tour, has called the Queen City home for the better part of the last 15 years, most recently hosting the Prasco Charity Championship.
