The Stars of the LPGA Return to the Pelican Golf Club in Tampa Bay
The Pelican Women’s Championship will be played Nov. 8-14, 2021 as the stars of the LPGA return to Tampa Bay following a successful first year at the prestigious Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, FL.
The Pelican Women’s Championship returns after an inaugural event that featured one of the strongest fields in professional golf, including top players like Lexi Thompson, Brooke Henderson, Morgan Pressel, Brittany Lincicome and Lydia Ko. The tournament was won by Sei Young Kim, who is currently ranked No. 2 in the world and has nearly $10 million in career earnings.
“We’re excited to continue to bring the stars of women’s professional golf to the Pelican Golf Club and Tampa Bay,” said Scott Reid, Executive Director of the Pelican Women’s Championship. “Pelican Golf Club, our corporate partners and the Belleair community shined in their LPGA debut and we’re thrilled to build on the success of our first year.”
The tournament will once again feature a full field of golfers competing over four rounds for a share of $1.75 million in prize money. Coverage of the competition will be broadcast to 175 countries and more than 500 million households worldwide.
“We are honored to welcome the stars of the LPGA back to Tampa Bay in 2021 as we continue to showcase our region to the world,” said Dan Doyle Jr., co-owner of the Pelican Golf Club and the President & CEO of DEX Imaging. “We had a sensational first year hosting the LPGA and we’re excited to continue to showcase the unmatched golf experience at the Pelican Golf Club.”
