2021 LPGA Women’s Golf: Back-to-Back On the Bay
The LPGA Tour will feature a back-to-back visit to the Bay Area in 2021.
Things will start off June 3-6 with the playing of the 2021 U.S. Women’s Open on The Lake Course at The Olympic Club. The championship will mark the first time a major women’s competition will be held on the elite layout.
The following week (June 10-13) and just 4 miles away, Lake Merced Golf Club will host the annual LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship.
“Lake Merced is such a special place to me, both as the site of my first LPGA Tour win as a professional in 2014 and for my eagle in a playoff in 2018, which is definitely one of the highlights of my career,” said 15-time LPGA Tour winner Lydia Ko. “I always love going to San Francisco, and to add the opportunity to play a major at The Olympic Club is just amazing. Thank you to the USGA for bringing us to one of the most iconic venues in the country.”
The U.S. Women’s Open will be the richest event on the 2021 LPGA calendar, featuring a purse of $5.5 million.
