ClubCorp's Mission Hills Country Club Serves as Site of 43rd LPGA Kraft Nabisco Championship
DALLAS - Mission Hills Country Club, a member of the ClubCorp family, is proud to welcome the LPGA and serve as the site of the Kraft Nabisco Championship for the 43rd consecutive year. The LPGA’s first “major” tournament of the year will take place April 1-6, 2014.
Mission Hills has served as the venue for all 43 years of the tournament, one of the most celebrated events in golf, since it was founded in 1972 by Dinah Shore. Only the PGA Tour’s Masters at Augusta National has had a longer continuous run of any major tournament at a single venue on either the men’s or women’s professional golf tours.
The Kraft Nabisco Championship, with a $2 million purse, welcomes more than 115 of the top women golfers in the world representing more than 28 different countries as they vie for a place in LPGA history, the $300,000 winner’s prize, the white robe and the legendary leap into Poppie's Pond.
