Discovery Land at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give Nearly Doubles in Size
Magical kids’ destination will feature Nickelodeon, Hasbro, Universal Studio and more
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The debut of Discovery Land at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give was such a success last year that the air-conditioned kids’ destination will nearly double in size – to 4,300 square feet – for the June 2019 tournament.
That means extra space for more toys and activities to engage young golf fans and families, including:
- Photo opportunities with a variety of characters
- Universal Studios
- A simulated Meijer Home Delivery shopping experience
- A 40-foot-long putting experience
- Craft zones
- Meijer Purple Cow ice cream
- LPGA player autograph sessions
“After seeing kids’ faces light up when they walked into Discovery Land last year, we knew this was something we wanted to build upon this year,” said Cathy Cooper, Executive Director of the Meijer LPGA Classic. “Families are a huge part of this event and we want to provide a fun experience for all families who plan to come out and enjoy the event.”
Due to the course being re-routed, Discovery Land will be in a prime location – right in front of the 18 Tee, near the Grand Taste and Grand Taste Garden. Discovery Land will be open Wednesday through Sunday and is free to all ticketholders.
Additionally, youth, ages 17 years and under, are invited to participate in a free, two-hour Junior Clinic that will feature fun activities, games and group instruction by LPGA professionals and local golf pros. The Meijer LPGA Junior Clinic will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 15 at Boulder Creek Golf Club. To register for the Junior Clinic, please visit meijerLPGAclassic.com.
Participants will receive free admission to the tournament with a ticketed adult.
