The Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic is a women's professional golf tournament on the LPGA Tour. It debuted in April 2014 at Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City, California, an adjacent suburb of San Francisco.[1]

Course history

Originally designed by Willie Locke, Lake Merced Golf Club opened 99 years ago in July 1923 and was re-designed in 1929 by Alister MacKenzie, architect of the Augusta National Golf Club. Robert Muir Graves re-routed the course in 1960 to accommodate Interstate 280, and the most recent revision was completed by Rees Jones in 1996.[2] Southeast of Lake Merced, the course is in close proximity to San Francisco Golf Club, Olympic Club, and TPC Harding Park.
