The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give will welcome attendees June 15-18 to Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“At Meijer, feeding people is at the heart of what we do, even on the golf course – whether through the Simply Give hunger relief program the tournament benefits or by providing a best-in-class culinary experience right off the fairway,” said Cathy Cooper, executive director for the Meijer LPGA Classic.
“Last year’s attendees loved the introduction of a premium culinary experience in J. Brewer’s, so we’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded that this year to include a new food experience called Frederik’s.”
J. Brewer’s is returning to the course, offering an all-you-can-eat meal experience curated by Meijer chefs and local restaurants off the fourth fairway. In addition to honoring the founder of Blythefield Country Club, J. Brewer, tournament officials will expand the pavilion this year to include a new Frederik’s food experience.
Named for Frederik Meijer, co-founder of the retailer, the new addition will offer guests additional menu and beverage options. The Frederik’s menu will change daily and feature products exclusive to the retailer’s premium Frederik’s product line.
J. Brewer’s Hospitality
Daily tickets for access to the J. Brewer’s pavilion cost $85 each. Those tickets are day specific and are available Friday through Sunday. Tickets for children, ages 5 and under, cost $10 each. Each child ticket must be accompanied by a ticketed adult.
“The level of premium hospitality offered by J. Brewer’s is unlike anything else available to the public on the tour,” Cooper said. “It meant a lot to us to be able to introduce that experience to our West Michigan community last year, and it’s even more exciting to now elevate it further with the addition of Frederik’s.”
General admission tickets
General Admission tickets for the Meijer LPGA Classic cost $10 each and are valid any day, Thursday through Sunday, while weekly tickets cost $25 and are valid all week. Kids, ages 17 and under, will once again receive free admission with a ticketed adult.
Meijer LPGA Classic tickets include general grounds access to the tournament, public viewing bleacher seating and various concessions areas located throughout the course. Discovery Land will return as a destination for kids and families and will be free and open to the public.
Tickets can be purchased at meijerLPGAclassic.com.
The 2023 Meijer LPGA Classic will host a full field of 144 female golfers for 72 holes of stroke play across four days of competition. Proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities – will benefit the Meijer Simply Give program that restocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest.
The 2022 tournament raised $1.25 million for local food pantries through Simply Give. In total, the eight tournaments combined have generated more than $8.65 million for the Meijer Simply Give hunger relief program.
