Event host Kingsmill prolongs LPGA tie-up to 2020
Kingsmill, the golf resort in Virginia, USA has extended its deal as the host and title sponsor of women’s golf’s Kingsmill Championship, the LPGA has announced.
Under the renewal, the Kingsmill Championship, which has been on the LPGA calendar since 2003, will continue to be held until at least 2020.
Michelob, the beer brand owned by Anheuser-Busch, was the title sponsor of the event for seven seasons, from the inaugural edition until 2009.
In 2012, host course Kingsmill came on board as the title sponsor of the tournament, which had been missing for the previous two years.
Prior to the launch of the women’s tournament, Kingsmill had hosted the men’s PGA Tour’s Michelob Championship for 22 years, from 1981 to 2002.
