Seven out of thirty locations are TBD ... really? Can't believe that haven't nailed down the Sky 72 Club for at least one event by now, they always play there. Unfortunately, they will again make two visits to the execrable Bear's Best Cheongna course. Well, maybe some of those TBDs will end up at new and highly ranked venues ... but I wouldn't bet on it.
DB Group still listed as KGA Women's Open sponsor so I fully expect the event to stay at Rainbow Hills but I don't have any inside knowledge on that. In a few months, there should be some notice on Rainbow Hills website's calendar listing the event which will confirm it before it's posted on KLPGA's website.
The two courses the tour visits twice have 27 holes and so the events use different 9's the second time they visit, so it's not ENTIRELY the same event. I went to Bears Best last fall and the buildings are an eye-sore if you're looking for them, but generally I was looking at the golf. My feet hurt SO bad after that event. It was the first event I actually walked the 18 holes. I have to have a better strategy this year. I have a bone spur of sorts in one of my feet and walking a lot can take it's toll.
I hope the KLPGA Championship is not at the same course since it's traditional to move around each year, but that said, I hope it's near enough that I can attend the Final Round. My goal is to get to the 5 major's final rounds this year, as I went to three of them last year.
There is NO OBVIOUS mention of DB Group on Rainbow Hills website, because it's an independent golf club, right? Nope!! There's a link to "Sister Websites" on the main page. Why would an independent golf club have "sister websites". *LOL* Every single "sister website" is DB Group this or DB Group that!!!
DB Group OWNS Rainbow Hills which we all assumed.
The KGA Women's Open surely will be at Rainbow Hills. LOL
