GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give will return in 2022 at Blythefield Country Club, bringing back family-favorite activities like the three-day Grand Taste and Discovery Land, tournament officials announced today.
“The Meijer LPGA Classic continues to make a big impact in our community each year and we look forward to bringing it back in an even bigger way next summer,” Meijer LPGA Classic Executive Director Cathy Cooper said. “We couldn’t keep bringing the event back without the support of our West Michigan community. They make it all possible.”
The tournament will once again benefit the retailer’s Simply Give program that stocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest. To date, the previous tournaments have generated more than $6.3 million for Simply Give.
Upcoming tournament dates are June 16-19, 2022 and will, once again, feature events for the entire family, including the Grand Taste and Discovery Land. It will host a full field of 144 of the best women golfers for 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition.
