JASPER, IN. – The sixth playing of the Legends of the LPGA’s Senior LPGA Championship will be hosted at a different course than years past, calling Sultan’s Run Golf Club in Jasper, Indiana home for 2023. Originating in French Lick, Indiana in 2017, and moving to Salina, Kansas in 2022, the tournament will return to the Hoosier state this year, just 30 miles south of French Lick.
The 2023 tournament will take place over three days, from June 29 to July 1. Players will compete for $400,000 with no cut being made during the week. Sultan’s Run Golf Club opened in 1992 and went through a redesign by Pete Dye disciple, Tim Liddy in 1996.
“Sultan’s Run is thrilled to be counted among 250 of more than 15,000 golf courses nationwide who have the distinction of hosting a professional golf tournament,” said Chris Tretter, Co-Owner of Sultan’s Run Golf Club. “We appreciate the Tour’s trust in our quality and capability. We look forward to showcasing our community, our premium course and our hospitality to players and spectators from far and near.”
The 2023 tournament field has not been set yet and follows strong competition in 2022. World Golf Hall of Famer, Annika Sorenstam headlined the list of competitors, but fellow Hall of Famer, Karrie Webb came out on top. The pair talked highly of their experience competing against other Legends of the LPGA.
“Playing in the 2022 LPGA Senior Championship was a great week from start to finish. Catching up with players and friends that I hadn’t seen for a while was special,” said Webb. “Obviously winning was exciting and icing on the cake. Going head-to-head with Annika over the weekend was a blast from the past. It was a great feeling to be back in a position to win, with all the nerves and adrenaline flowing, to then be able to play well enough when it counted. I look forward to defending my title this year at Sultan’s Run Golf Course in Indiana.”
ABOUT SULTAN’S RUN GOLF CLUB
Sultan’s Run is a premium, perennial award-winning, daily fee golf course located in Jasper, Indiana. Now in its 31st year of operation, Sultan’s Run was built on land purchased from Ruxer Farms, where legendary World Champion American Saddlebred Supreme Sultan roamed. Each of the holes at Sultan’s Run is named for one of Supreme Sultan’s World Champion offspring, except hole 18 which is named after the legend himself. This beautiful hole, which features a waterfall on a natural stone outcropping, is widely known as the “most dramatic signature hole in Indiana.”
The playing surface of this championship-caliber course consists of Zoysia tees, fairways and green surrounds and USGA Bentgrass greens. The rolling woodlands with significant slopes and elevation changes and undulating greens provide for a wonderful and challenging experience noted by a championship tee rating and slope of 74.1 and 140 respectively.
Standard and premium stay-and-play packages are available with local courses, or with historic French Lick Resort, located just 30 minutes away.
