Golf - LPGA Championship

The American LPGA Championship is second only to the US Women's Open in its history as a major tournament of female golf. From its creation in 1955 through to 2004 it was for professionals only but then, controversially, the LPGA decided to allow amateurs to compete. However, the uproar made them think again and in 2006 it was reinstated as a Pro-only tournament. The event is not recognised as a `major` by the European Tour.
Venues have been: 1955 Orchard Ridge, Fort Wayne; 1956 Forest Lake, Detroit; 1957 Churchill Valley, Pittsburgh;1958-60 Shearton Hotel, French Lick, 1961-66 Stardust, Las Vegas; 1967-68 & 1970-74 Pleasant Valley, Sutton; 1969 Concoird, Kiamesha Lake; 1975-76 Pine Ridge, Baltimore; 1977 Bay Tree, North Myrtle Beach; 1978-89 Jack Nicklaus Course, King Island; 1990-93 Bethesda; 1994-2004 Dupont, Wilmington; 2005-09 Bulle Rock; 2010-15 Locust Hill, New York; 2016 Sammamish, Washington State
