Golf fans will have front row access to the future stars of the LPGA Tour as the PXG Women’s Match Play Championship comes to the First Coast for the second time.

Tickets are now on sale as more than 80 of the world’s top professional women golfers prepare to take center stage at the tournament, which starts November 1 and wraps up November 6 on the internationally renowned Slammer & Squire Course at World Golf Village in St. Augustine.

The exception will be on November 3, so golfers can attend the Generation W Links to Leadership Summit presented by Circle K and Baptist Health of Jacksonville.

The tournament will also feature a free junior clinic being held at Slammer & Squire on October 30 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Juniors can sign up for the Spooktacular Junior Clinic powered by Vitis Energy on the tournament website. Golf clubs will be provided by The First Tee of Northeast Florida.

Ticket proceeds of the event will benefit Investing in Kids (INK!), a St. Johns County nonprofit that raises money for underserved public schools.

The PXG Women’s Match Play Championship is an official event on the East Coast Women’s Professional Golf Tour headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach. The ECWPGT is one of only three women’s pro developmental tours in the United States.

The tour’s mission is to create more and better playing opportunities for women aspiring to the LPGA Tour. Now in its second year, the PXG Women’s Match Play Championship features some of the brightest future stars of women’s golf who are pursuing their dream of playing on the LPGA Tour.

They will battle it out over a week-long endurance test that will combine a stroke-play and match-play tournament culminating under the spire of the World Golf Hall of Fame.

“This is high level golf and drama,” said Mark D. Berman, Tournament Director/Founder and CEO of the ECWPGT, “These players have all competed at the most elite levels of college, amateur and professional tours leading up to the LPGA Tour. Several have played in the US Women’s Open and on their National Teams. Fans will quickly learn the names of these incredible players and get to see them in action up close and personal before they become stars on the LPGA Tour.”

This year’s purse is $60,000 with the winner taking home $15,000, making it one of the biggest purses at this level of the women’s game.
