Updated: July 30, 2022

Wildhorse Resort & Casino will host an Epson Tour event at Wildhorse Golf Course, September 2-4, 2022. Known as the “Road to the LPGA,” the Epson Tour is the official qualifying tour of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA).

The Wildhorse Ladies Golf Classic will be the 17th stop on the Epson Tour’s 2022 schedule, welcoming professional female golfers from all over the United States and more than 40 countries around the world.

The Epson Tour enters its 42nd competitive season in 2022 and annually awards the top ten players on the season-long “Race for the Card” money list with LPGA Tour membership for the following season. Recent Epson Tour graduates include Olympic Gold Medalist and top-ranked American, Nelly Korda, as well as fellow Major Champions, Hannah Green and Patty Tavatanakit. “Wildhorse Resort & Casino and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation are excited to showcase and welcome some of the most talented young professional golfers from around the world to our Tribal and local communities,” CEO Gary George announced.

Wildhorse has committed to host the tournament for at least two years, bringing around 2,000 visitors to the area for each yearly event. Event staff and volunteers, as well as professional and amateur players, will begin pouring into Pendleton before tournament week. The main event is preceded by two Pro-Ams beginning August 31. This is when amateur golfers get to team up with professionals from the Epson Tour to compete in a scramble. For tickets go to wildhorseresort.com.
