Women’s major championship golf returns to Georgia in 2021 when the Atlanta Athletic Club hosts the 67th KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, from June 22-27, 2021. This will mark the first KPMG Women’s PGA Championship to be played in the state of Georgia with one of the largest purses in women’s golf history: $4.3 million, including $645,000 to the champion.
Jane Park, a 13-year player on the LPGA Tour, who lives in Woodstock, was on hand at Atlanta Athletic Club to play a practice round and participate in the announcement.
“I live in Woodstock, just a few miles down the road,” stated Park. “It’s very exciting to not have to get on a plane and get to this tournament.”
The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship – one of the LPGA’s five majors – combines an annual major championship with the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit and its ongoing charitable initiative – KPMG Future Leaders Program – all focused on the development, advancement and empowerment of women on and off the golf course.
Hosting this tournament adds to the storied history of Atlanta Athletic Club. This will be the second women’s major championship held at Atlanta Athletic Club. The first was the 1990 U.S. Women’s Open.
