All About the Meijer LPGA Classic
If you’ve been a reader of this blog for a while you’ll know that my husband and father-in-law are total golf geeks. They love it and just can’t get enough. That’s why every year when I partner with Meijer to share about The Meijer LPGA Classic they get so pumped! And I love supporting the Meijer LPGA Classic because proceeds from the tournament and from each of the week’s festivities will be given to the Meijer Simply Give program that works to restock the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest! How cool is that?
Meijer started this program back in 2008 and has since generated nearly $48 MILLION for its food pantry partners! The previous five tournaments alone have generated more than $4.2 million for Simply Give.
What is the Meijer LPGA Classic?
The Meijer LPGA Classic is a women’s professional golf tournament in Michigan on the LPGA Tour. Proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities – will benefit the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest.
WHEN IS THE MEIJER LPGA CLASSIC?
Taking place on June 11-16 at Blythefield Country Club in Belmont, MI
The Grand Taste & Grand Taste garden
The Grand Taste Garden will be across the fairway from the Grand Taste tent. It will feature food, outdoor games, chef demonstrations throughout the weekend and barbeque and live music from local bands Great Scott! and Blue Water Kings Band, following play on Friday and Saturday evenings!
It’s a 5,000-square-foot addition that will accompany the Grand Taste tent, a 20,000-square-foot air-conditioned tent that overlooks the fairway and features food from dozens of local restaurants, breweries, Meijer vendors and Meijer products and food trends.
Discovery Land is the PERFECT spot to let your kiddos play! This year, Discovery Land will be in a prime location – right in front of the 18 Tee, near the Grand Taste and Grand Taste Garden. Discovery Land will be open Wednesday through Sunday and is free to all ticketholders. And bonus – it’s air-conditioned!
Here are just a few things you’ll be able to experience in Discovery Land:
- Photo opportunities with a variety of characters
- Universal Studios
- A simulated Meijer Home Delivery shopping experience
- A 40-foot-long putting experience
- Craft zones
- Meijer Purple Cow ice cream
- LPGA player autograph sessions
Plus, if your kiddos are age 17 years and under they’re invited to participate in a free, two-hour Junior Clinic that will feature fun activities, games and group instruction by LPGA professionals and local golf pros! The Meijer LPGA Junior Clinic will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 15 at Boulder Creek Golf Club. To register for the Junior Clinic, please visit meijerLPGAclassic.com.
