After a year in Lake Nona, the Gainbridge LPGA will make a return to the Boca Rio Golf Club Jan. 27-30, 2022.

The 2022 Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio will feature a field of 120 players competing for a $2 million purse. It will be the second stop in Florida as the LPGA kicks off the year with the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, moving to a new host venue at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club in Orlando.

“We are thrilled to continue our work with the LPGA Tour and return to Boca Rio Golf Club for the 2022 Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio,” said Dan Towriss, president and CEO of Group 1001, the parent organization of Gainbridge.

“In the tournament’s first two years, we have established the Gainbridge LPGA as a world-class championship,” Towriss said. “It is an honor for us to support women’s golf and provide a platform for the game’s best players to showcase their talents to fans all over the world.”

Boca Rio Golf Club President Elliott Wallace said the club is looking forward to hosting the women’s best golfers again.

“The inaugural event in 2020 was a tremendous success for the Southeast Florida community,” Wallace said. “We look forward to welcoming the players and local fans back to Boca Rio in January.”

The 2021 Gainbridge LPGA was contested at Lake Nona Golf and Country Club in Orlando in late February, when Nelly Korda captured her fourth LPGA Tour win at 16-under par.

“Gainbridge has been a tremendous partner the first two years of this championship, and we are honored to bring the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio back to Boca Rio Golf Club in 2022,” said Lesley Baker, executive director for the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio. “The support from Boca Rio Golf Club and Palm Beach County in 2020 was outstanding, and we look forward to returning for the 2022 edition of this great championship.”

Since the LPGA Q-Series went so late this year, wrapping up the first weekend in December, the LPGA has not released initial commitments as of yet. In 2020, Boca Raton residents Morgan Pressel and Jaye Marie Green were in the field.

Ticket packages for the 2022 Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio include exclusive hospitality and general admissions tickets offering entertainment and access. Tickets are now available for purchase exclusively at GainbridgeLPGA.com.
