Kroger, P&G sponsor Kenwood Country Club event

Top-tier professional golf is returning to Greater Cincinnati in 2022 with the inaugural Kroger Queen City Championship presented by P&G, a  Ladies Professional Golf Association event to be contested at the recently renovated Kenwood Country Club.

Scheduled for Sept. 5-11, 2022, this will be the fourth national-level tournament hosted at Kenwood – 1933 U.S. Amateur, PGA Tour’s 1954 Western Open and 1963 Women’s U.S. Open.

The purse for the event will be $1.75 million; the LPGA Tour paid out a record $76.45 million in purses for the 2021 season. 

The decision to bring the LPGA back to Greater Cincinnati was because of its passion for sports, the partnerships with Kroger/P&G and the momentum behind women’s sports, LPGA Tour commissioner Mollie Marcoux Samaan said, which she described as a “no-brainer.”
