Follow LPGA Legends Sunday at Inglewood GC
Amy Alcott, Nancy Lopez, Pat Bradley and others hit our NW links Sunday to raise money for breast cancer research.
Outside of the annual Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, Puget Sound residents have few chances to watch golf’s greatest players in person. Sure, you could drive down to Portland for the LPGA’s annual Safeway Classic, or sit around and count the days until the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay (1,062 and counting!) … or, you could head out to Inglewood Golf Club in Kenmore this Sunday.
The Legends Tour — the official Senior Tour of the LPGA — comes to the Puget Sound region on Sunday when Nancy Lopez, Pat Bradley and other icons of women’s golf tee it up at Inglemoor for the 2012 LPGA Legends Swing For the Cure charity tournament.
Tickets are just $20 for adults, with military personnel (with ID) and kids under 17 admitted free. Plus, 100 percent of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure Puget Sound.
Not only will it be fun for golf fans who grew up watching Lopez, Bradley, Amy Alcott, Patty Sheehan and local favorite Joanne Carner compete for major championships, it will also be an outstanding opportunity to introduce younger players — particularly daughters and granddaughters — to true role models in women’s athletics, a generation who pursued their golfing dreams and opened doors for those who have come after.
Tickets can be purchased online through the website linked here, which also contains complete information about directions, parking and volunteer opportunities.
