Los Angeles Set to Host Multiple LPGA Tour Events This Spring with the DIO Implant LA Open in March and the JM Eagle LA Championship presented by Plastpro in April
The LPGA Tour returns to Southern California this spring with multiple events in Los Angeles. The DIO Implant LA Open, taking place at Palos Verdes Golf Club in Palos Verdes Estates, is set to take place March 30-April 2, followed by the inaugural JM Eagle LA Championship presented by Plastpro, hosted at historic Wilshire Country Club in Hollywood, April 27-30.
The DIO Implant LA Open marked the return of the LPGA Tour to Los Angeles in more than a decade when the tournament made its debut in 2018. In 2022, Japanese star Nasa Hataoka captured her sixth LPGA Tour win at -15, taking a five-stroke victory over Australian Hannah Green. Brooke Henderson (2021), Minjee Lee (2019) and Moriya Jutanugarn (2018) also hold DIO Implant LA Open titles.
In 2023, the DIO Implant LA Open is moving to its new home, Palos Verdes Golf Club, often referred to as the “hidden gem” in Southern California. A field of 144 of the world’s best female professional golfers will compete for a share of the $1.75 million purse, an increase of $250,000 from 2022. Palos Verdes Golf Club has a rich history in hosting women’s golf events, including the Palos Verdes Championship presented by Bank of America in 2022, with Marina Alex capturing her first LPGA Tour win since 2018. Palos Verdes also has hosted the Therese Hession (formerly the Northrop Grumman) Regional Challenge women’s collegiate championship for the past 26 years.
One month later, the inaugural JM Eagle LA Championship presented by Plastpro takes center stage at Wilshire Country Club in the heart of Hollywood. The championship also will feature 144 of the world’s best female professional golfers competing for a share of the $3 million purse, one of the largest purses on the LPGA Tour schedule outside of the major championships and the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship. Wilshire Country Club is one of a select few venues to host events on the LPGA Tour, PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions.Tickets for both events are now on sale, including hospitality and grounds passes offering a wide degree of entertainment and access.
