CSP is proud to partner with the 2012 Symetra Classic, a stop on the Symetra Tour – Road to the LPGA! The 2012 Symetra Classic will take place September 10-16, 2012 at the Raintree Country Club in South Charlotte and will bring together a field of 144 women professional golfers from around the world and across the United States. The Symetra Tour – Road to the LPGA is the developmental tour of the LPGA, whose mission is to prepare the very best young professional women golfers for a successful career on the LPGA Tour. Every year, the top 10 Symetra Tour players earn automatic membership to play on the LPGA Tour. The tour includes nearly 30 players with North Carolina ties, as well as many of the stars of the most recent season of the hit Golf Channel show, “Big Break: Atlantis.”
This event is for the entire family to enjoy all week long and support women’s golf and the next generation of LPGA superstars. I personally am thrilled to see Charlotte bring a women’s golf event of this caliber to Charlotte! It’s about time we lift up these Smarty women in golf!
The Smarty Symetra Giveaway
One lucky Smarty will win (1) Daddy/Daughter Golf Clinic Slot (these are coveted spots as it’s an exclusive sold-out event!) on Thursday afternoon.
