The Ladies’ Professional Golf Association (LPGA) will return to the Wilshire Country Club April 22 to 28, 2019. The tournament will feature 144 of the world’s best female professionals competing over four rounds of golf for a share of the $1.5 million purse. Last year, locals were among the thousands of spectators to descend on the iconic club to watch Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand win the tournament by two strokes with a score of 12 under par. According to event organizers, the 2019 tournament will undergo a name change to the “Hugel-Air Premia LA Open” to reflect its association with Air Premia, a new air carrier based in South Korea.

Club’s 100th

Additionally, this year marks the centennial celebration at Wilshire Country Club, which opened in 1919.

“Wilshire Country Club is once again thrilled to host the annual LA Open tournament and we are honored it will add to our extensive golfing legacy,” said the club’s president, Patrick O’Grady.

“We will be celebrating our 100th anniversary in 2019, and the LPGA tournament simply reaffirms the tremendous and sustained relevance of our classic golf course within the heart of Los Angeles.”

The tournament, sponsored by South Korean-based maker of Botox, Hugel, as well as Air Premia, is owned and operated by Eiger Marketing Group. To obtain passes and spectator information, visit
