The LPGA will make it's first stop in Michigan since 2000 at the Meijer LPGA Classic in Grand Rapids in 2014.

The Meijer LPGA Classic will take place at Blythefield Country Club in Belmont. The event will run August 7 - 10 in 2014.

LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said:

The Midwest has a great history when it comes to women’s golf and we are truly excited to partner with a company like Meijer to bring the LPGA Tour back to the state of Michigan. The area has such passionate golf fans and with Meijer’s commitment to giving back to their community, this tournament could not be a better fit for the LPGA.

The $1.5 million event will feature 144 players playing 72 holes.

Looking forward to another fun and exciting annual event in West Michigan!
