RSS

HALF MOON BAY, Calif. -- The LPGA Tour's Samsung World Championship is moving this fall from the California desert to the Ocean Course at Half Moon Bay Golf Links.
 
The tournament, which features an elite field of 20 players, had been at Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert the last four years.
 
The move will give northern California consecutive weeks of women's golf. The Samsung Championship will be played Oct. 2-5, one week before the Longs Drugs Challenge in Danville.
 
Half Moon Bay, designed by Arthur Hills in 1997, becomes the 15th course to host the Samsung.
