LPGA Legends Tour Benefit this Weekend

LPGA Legends on Nantucket IslandThe Legends of the LPGA are coming to Nantucket Island for the inaugural Nantucket Golf Weekend September 9 to 11 to benefit Nantucket Cottage Hospital.

Nearly 200 golfers will gather on the island for a long weekend of golf and social events highlighted by the presence of some of the greatest female golfers in the history of the game.

Building on the 20-year success of the Swing for Nantucket Cottage Hospital, the new Nantucket Golf Weekend will also now feature The Legends of the LPGA. While much of the golf and social events are for players and sponsors, two events open to spectators: the LPGA Legends Shootout on Saturday, September 9, from 4 to 6 pm and the LPGA Legends Pro Am on Sunday, September 10 from 9 am to 2 pm. These golf events will take place at Nantucket’s Miacomet Golf Club, the 2014 New England Golf Course of the Year.

The net proceeds from the Nantucket Golf Weekend will support Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s Walk-In Care service, which offers easy and convenient access to medical care for non-life-threatening conditions without the trip to the emergency room.
