Phoenix to Host LPGA Founders Cup
10 Feb, 2015
The Greater Phoenix CVB has announced a golf event coming up later this spring that is expected to draw some of the hottest players today.
The 5th Annual LPGA Founders Cup will be played March 17-22, 2015, at Wildfire Golf Club at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa. This full-field, four-day event will be televised live on The Golf Channel all four days. The Founders Cup was established four years ago to honor the 13 original Founders of the LPGA, as well as to help provide a future for the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program, which has received more than $2 million from tournament proceeds in the last four years.
About Visit Phoenix: Things are different in the desert. The sky is bigger. The stars are brighter. The sunsets stop you in your tracks.
It’s a feeling that can’t be conjured, landscaped or kindled with twinkling bulbs. John Ford knew that. So did Frank Lloyd Wright. Come to Greater Phoenix and you’ll understand, too.
America’s sixth-largest city still has real cowboys and rugged mountains and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons. Phoenix is the gateway to the Grand Canyon, and its history is a testament to the spirit of puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries.
Projected against this rich backdrop is a panorama of urban sophistication: Resorts and spas that drop jaws and soothe souls. Stadiums and arenas worthy of the world’s biggest sports spectacles. Restaurants with inspired cuisine and inspiring patio views. Golf courses that beckon players the year round. Shopping centers as stylish and eclectic as the fashions they house.
This is Greater Phoenix — Arizona’s urban heart and America’s sunniest metropolis. Go to the website for more information.
