AmazingCre will be the title sponsor of the Portland Classic, while Cambia Health Solutions continues their support in a significant way
The AmazingCre Portland Classic will bring the world’s top women professional golfers to the city of Portland this Sept. 12–18, 2022. In its 51st year, this popular event is the LPGA Tour’s longest running non-major tournament and its only stop in the northwest. 2022 marks an especially important year as the purse for the AmazingCre Portland Classic will increase by $100,000 to $1.5 million.
AmazingCre is a Korean-based sports apparel and equipment brand focused on unique and functional design. This is the first year that AmazingCre will be involved.
“The Portland Classic has a long and storied history. AmazingCre is striving to become a brand that has earned the trust and respect of golf fans around the world in the same way that this tournament has delivered on its promise to provide a world-class golf event over the past 50 years,” said Yong Moon You, CEO of AmazingCre.
The AmazingCre Portland Classic will return to Columbia Edgewater Country Club after a one-year hiatus. CECC has been home to the Portland Classic for 35 of its 51 years and has become an established favorite for both players and fans.
“We are delighted to welcome our new title sponsor, AmazingCre, and wish to thank Cambia Health Solutions for many continued years of providing a foundation for LPGA Tour players to visit Portland. It is exciting to be back at Columbia Edgewater Country Club, a course the players look forward to seeing as a cornerstone on their tour,” said Mark Ganz, Chairman of the Board of Tournament Golf Foundation.
The Portland Classic is vital to the local economy and spotlights women’s sports in a year where Title IX also celebrates a 50th anniversary.
“Past sponsors have stepped up in a big way to help shift the tide toward more equity in women’s sports, and we challenge businesses to do the same again this year,” said Darci Hansen, TGFI board member and Vice President of B2B Strategy & Integrated Marketing at Cambia Health Solutions.
