Meijer LPGA Classic To Feature Family-Friendly Attractions

Meijer LPGA

Meijer will feature family friendly attractions at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give June 15-18 at the Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

“Meijer is a family company that’s committed to meeting the needs of families across the Midwest, and that commitment extends to the Meijer LPGA Classic,” said Cathy Cooper, executive director of the Meijer LPGA Classic.

“We’re excited to bring back the family-focused elements of our event that children love and adults appreciate, as well as add a few new things to make this our most memorable tournament yet.”

Discovery Land will return to its location off the 18th fairway, offering young golf fans and their families an on-course experience. The open-air kids’ destination will feature character visits from Universal Studios guests and Wimee of Wimee’s Words (a Grand-Rapids-based TV show on PBS), card making with American Greetings, a Grand Rapids Children’s Museum activity and outdoor lawn games, including a Kraft Heinz mini golf course, cornhole and fowling.

The Meijer LPGA Classic family care areas will be expanded this year to two on-course locations for nursing mothers and parents. One air-conditioned tent will be located next to Discovery Land and will include two locking rooms with lactation and diaper changing stations, as well as an upgraded waiting area for kids and families. A second air-conditioned location, offering two additional lactation and changing stations, will be available at the 16th fairway.

The Grand Taste Concessions will offer food for families with no item priced over $4. Menu highlights include a cheeseburger for $4 and a hot dog for $2. Meijer Purple Cow ice cream will be available for $1. There will be four concessions locations on course at the 10th tee, 16th fairway, 18th tee and 18th green.

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 to help them feed families.

The 2022 tournament raised $1.25 million. In total, the eight tournaments combined have generated more than $8.65 million. Additionally, in 2022, the grocer also donated $25,000 to a hunger relief organization of tournament Champion Jennifer Kupcho’s choice: the Grand Rapids-based Kids’ Food Basket.
