Due to its long history and propensity to draw the top female golfers in the world, the US Women's Open is one of the most renowned events on the LPGA Tour. Established in 1946, the tournament has always been held on some of the most challenging and iconic courses in the United States, including Pinehurst No. 2, Oakmont Country Club, and The Country Club. This year, the women's event takes place at the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links, while the men's event will take place at Los Angeles Country Club, and the early US Open betting previews have made American sensation Scottie Scheffler the +700 betting favorite.

The winner's payout has regularly been among the richest in women's golf. The US Women's Open is a competition that every female golfer hopes to win, with prior winners including Annika Sorenstam, Se Ri Pak, and Inbee Park on the list.

The competition has kept its place as one of the most renowned competitions in women's golf since it began in 1972. Not only is it one of the five major championships in women's golf, but the ANA Inspiration also boasts a rich history as the longest-running active event at a single course, the historic Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California.

Every year, the winner of the competition receives the prized Dinah Shore Trophy, which has made it famous among professional golfers. Every player hopes to triumph in this kind of competition at least once during their playing career. It is simple to understand why the ANA Inspiration is one of the most cherished and regarded events currently taking place given the combination of history, status, and huge stakes.

The Solheim Cup

The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament that brings together the best female golfers from the United States against the top players from Europe in a team-based match-play event. It can be summed up as the equal of the men's Ryder Cup in golf, which is also one of the most prominent competitions in sports, for women.

It is named after Karsten Solheim, the founder of PING, a golf equipment company. The tournament is held during odd-numbered years, and the venue alternates between courses in Europe and America. The Solheim Cup is one of the world's most prestigious team golf events. Heading into the 2023 installment of the tournament, the Americans lead the overall standings with ten wins to the Europeans' seven.

Evian Championship

An annual women's golf competition called the Evian Championship takes place in France. This competition has a long history; it was first held in 1994 as the Evian Masters before changing its status to a major championship in 2013. The Evian Championship is an important event on the golfing calendar that is eagerly anticipated by both participants and spectators. It attracts many of the best golfers in the world and offers a $4.5 million prize pool.

The magnificent backdrop to the golfing action is provided by the beautiful locale of Evian-les-Bains in the French Alps. Additionally, even the most experienced player will find the course itself difficult because it was created by Steve Smyers and is steeped in history and tradition. The Evian Championship is an LPGA Tour event that stands out because of these elements as well as the competition's rich history and first-rate hospitality.


The LPGA Tour is comprised of renowned competitions that highlight top talent, and many of these events have evolved into symbols of the tour's development over time.
