McDonalds LPGA Gets New Home


2005 McDonaldHAVRE DE GRACE, Md. -- The LPGA announced Sunday that the 2005 McDonald's LPGA Championship will move to Bulle Rock Golf Course. Bulle Rock replaces DuPont Country Club, which had hosted the event for the past 18 years.
'The tournament has had a wonderful relationship with the DuPont Country Club for the past 18 years,' said tournament co-founder Herb Lotman. 'DuPont's support has been invaluable, allowing us to raise millions of dollars for children's charities.
Bulle Rock's par-72 layout has garnered several honors including being ranked one of the top-100 public courses in the nation. Some think Bulle Rock's 7,375-yard course may be good enough to host a U.S. Open in the future.
The 2005 McDonald's LPGA Championship, the LPGA's second major of the season, will be contested June 6-12.
