Excitement mounts for the return of the Ladies Professional Golf Association championship tournament at Wilshire Country Club. 

Scheduled this year for Thurs., April 25 to Sun., April 28, most, if not all, of the world’s top women golfers are expected to participate. Last year’s trophy pool doubled (from $1.5 million to $3 million), with a first prize of $450,000. The top-prize winner last year was Hannah Green, and she definitely plans to be back.

Wilshire Country Club has become a popular venue for lady golfers. The surrounding residents and golf fans are very welcoming. Some club members who live nearby open up their houses and have tournament players stay as houseguests. In addition, tournament title and presenting sponsors JM Eagle and Plastpro (headed by Walter and Shirley Wang) have this year decided to underwrite hotel accommodations for all the tournament participants. That is an unusual and attractive benefit for the ladies traveling around the world on the tour.

The popularity of Wilshire Country Club with the players is reciprocal. The current national golf champion, Allisen Corpuz, has been made an honorary member of the club, and visitors can see her large sterling silver U.S. Open trophy on display in a case at the club. More information about the April tournament, including how to purchase spectator packages and tickets in advance, is available at
