The 2019 Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give renewed its agreement with the LPGA and Blythefield Country Club for two more years, extending the popular tournament through 2021, tournament officials announced.
"The Meijer LPGA Classic has made an incredible impact on our hungry neighbors, and we are excited to continue to come together with the community to make a difference," Meijer LPGA Classic Executive Director Cathy Cooper said. "This tournament is such a special way for families to spend time together, and we couldn't be more pleased with the community support."
Despite the rain, the 2019 Meijer LPGA Classic boasted record attendance with more than 56,000 visitors throughout the week. Additionally, it generated $1.1 million for the retailer's Simply Give program that stocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest. In total, the six previous tournaments have generated $5.2 million for Simply Give.
Upcoming tournament dates are June 8-14, 2020 and June 7-13, 2021, and will, once again, feature events for the entire family. It will host a full field of 144 of the best women golfers for 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition.
