Who’d have thought that Rancho Mirage would ever be known for its water? But in March, water is a primary ingredient in golf history as golf lovers and sports fans are treated to one of professional golf’s most-prestigious and highly-anticipated events, the ANA Inspiration Championship at Mission Hills Country Club. With the promise of “Instant History, Just Add Water” golf’s FIRST major brings the finest women’s golfers on the planet to the desert for an event that houses some of golf’s most storied and unique traditions. The “instant history” comes by way of the elite female golfers, who catapult their careers to new heights by capturing this highly coveted LPGA major championship. The “water” comes by way of Poppie’s Pond, historically located adjacent to Mission Hill’s 18th green and the site of one of golf’s most anticipated annual traditions – the victory plunge, taken by each Championship winner in their moment of glory. After the champion’s leap, only then does the major champion earn the right to wear the white robe that adorns the victor’s shoulders.
Don’t miss the action as defending champion Brittany Lincicome challenges a world-class field of the LPGA’s standout players like previous champion Inbee Park, as well as Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson, Natalie Gulbis, Yani Tseng and Karrie Webb for the right be named golf’s first major champion of 2014. But it’s not all history and water at this fun-filled event. The ANA Inspiration Championship offers a fun-filled weekend for golfers, sports fans and their entire families, featuring the 18th Green Suite(s), Legends Club, Fan Zone, autograph tent, spectator shopping at the merchandise tent, the famous Dinah Shore statue.
