The inaugural "Challenge at Musket Ridge" tournament, part of the LPGA's Symetra Tour, will take place August 20-26, 2012.
With its natural beauty and rolling topography, Musket Ridge Golf Club encompasses some of the most scenic land the Mid-Atlantic has to offer. Its breathtaking views combined with impeccably conditioned fairways and greens provide a challenging course that receives continuous praise from both occasional and accomplished golfers.
This event marks the only current women’s professional golf tournament in Maryland.
The LPGA's Symetra Tour (the Road to the LPGA) will partner with the Frederick County Commission for Women (FCCW) to run the event, which will help support local women’s and children’s charities.
“The Commission for Women is proud to bring the state’s only women’s professional golf tournament to Musket Ridge Golf Club. Our mission is to foster opportunities for all women and we believe this tournament will help us achieve that goal. The Challenge at Musket Ridge will showcase the future stars of the LPGA while raising funds for programs in Frederick County that support women and children.”
- Vivian Laxton, President, Frederick County Commission for Women
