“We are thrilled to continue our work with the LPGA Tour and return to Boca Rio Golf Club for the 2022 Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio,” said Dan Towriss, President and CEO of Group 1001, the parent organization of Gainbridge. “In the tournament’s first two years, we have established the Gainbridge LPGA as a world-class championship. It is an honor for us to support women’s golf and provide a platform for the game’s best players to showcase their talents to fans all over the world.”
"We are excited to once again host the world’s best female golfers back to Boca Rio Golf Club in January for the 2022 Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio,” said Elliott Wallace, president of Boca Rio Golf Club. “The inaugural event in 2020 was a tremendous success for the Southeast Florida community. We look forward to welcoming the players and local fans back to Boca Rio next January.”
Boca Rio Golf Club, which was founded in 1967 and designed by Robert von Hagge, is situated just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean on 200 acres of native Florida wilderness. A member-owned luxury golf club, Boca Rio is a rolling golf course featuring undulating greens and white sand bunkers with no developed real estate.
The Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio made its debut in Palm Beach County in 2020. Madelene Sagström shot 17-under par to win the tournament and take home $300,000, her share of the $2 million purse. The tournament returns to Palm Beach County in 2021 with support from the Palm Beach County Sports Commission.
“With professional events on the LPGA Tour, PGA Tour, and PGA Tour Champions, it is easy to see why The Palm Beaches is Florida’s Golf Capital,” said George Linley, Executive Director of the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. “The Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio will create a significant boost in visitor spending while spotlighting The Palm Beaches, FL over four days of live television coverage on the Golf Channel.”
