About the Kapalua LPGA Classic

This new women's golf tournament is an official 72-hole tournament on the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) women's golfing event tour. The event is being held on the 6600 Kapalua Bay Golf Course which was designed by Arnold Palmer and Francis Duane. In addition to the main tournament there will be an 18 hole pro-am event for which four-member amateur teams will be paired with an LPGA professional to compete in a relaxed "best ball" scramble for all handicap levels. World class female golfers such as Lorena Ochoa, Paula Creamer, Natalie Gulbis, Ai Miyazato, Annika Sorenstam, and the Kapalua Resort's touring professional player Morgan Pressel are expected to play in 2008 Kapalua LPGA Classic.
