The Legends Tour, Official Senior Tour of the LPGA, announces its return to Horseshoe Bend Arkansas on Sept 26th and 27th 2009. Twenty Legends of the LPGA will tee it up at The Golf Course on Turkey Mountain September 26-27th for a charity pro-am, bringing LPGA Legends back to Horseshoe Bend for the second time.
Scheduled to Compete:

 
Arkansas Children's Hospital is the benefactor to this exciting addition to the north central Arkansas community.

In addition to the pro-am, a community clinic will be held at the course showcasing the swings of various Legends Tour professionals.

Horseshoe Bend is one of the fastest growing retirement communities in the U.S., nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains. Legends Tour President and former LPGA standout Jane Blalock sees it as a good fit for a pro-am that will grow into a full field tournament stop in subsequent years.

"We have a fan base in that region who would enjoy the opportunity to see Legends of the LPGA come through and tackle their local course," said Blalock. "We are encouraged by the commitment of local supporters and excited to build and grow a viable event in their neck of the woods."

The Legends Pro-Am will be the culminating event of a community weekend in Horseshoe Bend. Activities designed for families and area residents will fill the last weekend of September with the Legends Pro-Am finale on Sunday. Community members have a unique opportunity to show their support of The Legends Tour and their community all weekend long.
