Meijer LPGA Classic Announces Free Activities for Young Golf Fans
2 Jun, 2015
Junior Golfers Invited to Participate in Free Weeklong Activities
The Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft seeks to engage young golf fans by expanding its menu of free interactive and on-site activities.
“The Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft is working diligently to engage families throughout the community,” Meijer President J.K. Symancyk said. “By offering a variety of youth programs, we feel that we are able to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for parents and youth alike.”
The Meijer LPGA Junior Clinic presented by Johnson & Johnson will take place at 1 p.m. July 22-24 at Boulder Creek Golf Course, 5750 Brewer Ave. NE, in Belmont, Mich. Youth, ages 17 years and under, are invited to participate in the free, two-hour clinics that will feature group instruction, activities, and games by LPGA professionals and local golf pros.
That age group will also receive free admission to the tournament, held July 23-26 at Blythefield Country Club with a ticketed adult.
Once at the tournament, youth will have access to the Meijer LPGA Kids Center presented by Dove when it’s open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 22-26. The tent, located between holes 11 and 16, will features arts and crafts, golf activities, and LPGA player autograph sessions throughout the week.
Similar to last year, proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities– will benefit the Simply Give program. The inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft raised $600,000 for the Simply Give program to feed those in need.
The Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft will host a full field of 144 players playing 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition July 21-26 at Blythefield Country Club.
