2017 Marathon Classic LPGA Tournament
The Marathon Classic kicks off this week at The Highland Meadow Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio. Since last year, there have been several upgrades to the course; including a new #18 finishing hole, a newly designed driving range, and a new clock tower. The course, under the excellent care of Greg Pattison (Highland Meadows’ Golf Superintendent) and crew, looks great and is tournament ready.
This afternoon, Northwest Ohio welcomes Wounded Warrior Amputee and decorated serviceman, Dan Nevins to the Promedica/Hyland Group Pro Am. Dan Lost both legs in Iraq from and an IED and spent 18 months at the Walter Reed Medical Center. With the help of the Wounded Warrior Project he learned to mountain climb and play golf. We are honored to have him in here in Northwest Ohio and for his service to this country.
On Wednesday’s Pro-AM event, local celebrities, such as Toledo Rockets Head Coach Jason Candle and LPGA Pros will take to the course. 2016 Marathon Classic Champion and world #1, Lydia Ko will also be here to defend her title.
Since the tournament began in 1984, the Marathon Classic has contributed 9.8 million dollars to Northwest Ohio and SE Michigan charities. It is a wonderful event for our community and a lot of fun to attend. Please come out and support the LPGA and Northwest Ohio!
