The event will feature a full day of activities including a luncheon, golf outing in the afternoon, and a reception and awards starting at 6:00 p.m. This is a shotgun start four-person, scramble format featuring LPGA players participating in activities throughout the day.

“Springfield had a 36-year love affair with the LPGA,” said Kate Peters, COO of Fund Development, Marketing & Communications for Girl Scouts of Central Illinois. “There isn’t a day that goes by that I am not asked to put together an outing or a reunion for the many friends and family of the former LPGA golf tourney. We thought this would be a great way to celebrate leaders in the game of women’s golf as we at Girl Scouts work to build female leaders in the game of life.”

Individual playing positions are $125 and includes, luncheon, outing and evening reception. Tickets for the reception $50.

Register to play by June 1 and be entered to win a pair of weekly grounds/parking passes to the Marathon Classic in Toledo, Ohio July 13-19, 2015. There will be 4 winners.
