“I like to play in the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions simply because I get to play with champions. I get to play with all these amazing LPGA champions,” said actor Alfonso Ribeiro

Indeed, the caliber of LPGA athletes makes this event stand out. 

"It's an honorable tournament where only the winners can participate, and my goal is to participate every year. It motivates me to work hard," explained Nasa Hataoka, an LPGA athlete and Hilton Grand Vacations Brand Ambassador. 

As one of the world’s longest running women’s professional sports associations, the LPGA represents some of the best athletes in the world.

The LPGA Foundation is a vital component of the organization, founded in 1991 on a mission to “empower, inspire and transform the lives of girls and young women through the game of golf.”

“As a kid, there weren’t a lot of opportunities for a young female athlete like me to see female athletes on TV. You basically had golfers and tennis players. And I would turn on that TV and just be inspired by the women athletes. And to see that they could make a living doing it really told me that I was validated as an athlete and that it was really important,” said Mollie Marcoux-Samaan, the LPGA tour commissioner

“Hilton Grand Vacations has done an amazing job of trying to push the women’s game forward,” explained Brooke Henderson, an LPGA athlete from Canada. 

The 2024 Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions features LPGA winners from the previous two seasons competing for $1.5 million in official prize money.

“The Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions is probably the best opening of the season. I really enjoy this golf tournament,” said Gabby Lopez, an LPGA athlete from Mexico. “I love the tournament. It’s a great way to start the season, and it’s such a fun vibe especially with the celebrities and athletes,” agreed Nelly Korda, an LPGA athlete from America.

The 2024 tournament’s roster is not yet complete, but if the 2023 lineup indicates the type of talent you can expect, you’re in for another good one. 

Four players dominated the leaderboard of the 29 competitors in 2023. Canada's Brooke Henderson placed number one, taking home the trophy. Following Henderson was Sweden's Maja Stark and England's Charley Hull, who tied for second place, with America's Nelly Korda not far behind.

As for her favorite part of the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions? Playing with other professional athletes and celebrities, which she doesn’t do often.
