What to Look FOREward to When You Visit the 2022 Meijer LPGA Classic
Grand Rapids can consider itself lucky to be the home of one of the largest women's golf tournaments in the world. The Meijer LPGA is back this weekend at Blythefield Country Club, tucked into the northern part of Kent County, and it's got something for everyone in the family.
Whether you're an avid golf fan, or just a casual observer who just wants to see the real deal up close, this tournament is one of the coolest most accessible options, and it's right in your back yard. 144 of the world's best female golfers will be playing just feet away from you all weekend long.
The other best part about this tournament? It's for a great cause- Meijer and the LPGA have teamed up with the Simply Give program to raise money to help battle food insecurity throughout West Michigan. A portion of your ticket purchase goes to help fund this program.
