The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has confirmed that the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota will host the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
The tournament will be played from 20th to 23rd June 2019. It will be the first time that the Women’s PGA Championship will be played at Hazeltine and the first time that a LPGA major is played in the US state of Minnesota.
The club has previously hosted the 1966 and 1977 US Women’s Open, as well four PGA majors and the US Ryder Cup team's 17-11 victory in the 2016 edition of their match with Europe.
“The PGA of America is delighted to bring the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, and the greatest women players in the world, to one of the our country’s great venues and the site of the 2016 Ryder Cup,” said Pete Bevacqua, chief executive of the PGA of America. “Hazeltine National Golf Club was built to host majors and its membership, along with exceptional sports fans throughout Minnesota, embrace golf.
“We are excited for what lies ahead in 2019 and for our continued relationship of major championship golf at Hazeltine that will continue well into the future.”
The 2017 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship will be contested at Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois from 29th June to 2nd July.
