Epson Tour’s Carlisle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic sets the stage at TPC Scottsdale with the largest purse on tour at $400,000

The Epson Tour, which is an LPGA development tour, announced on Monday that the prize purse at the Carlisle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic, one of their biggest events, is growing to $400,000. That makes it the largest on this tour, and the first-place winner will come away with an impressive $60,000 prize.

The tournament will also be moving. Previously located at the Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, the event will transition to TPC Scottsdale on the Champions Course. The TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course is the official home of the WM Phoenix Open.

The Champions Course will also host the last stage of the PGA Tour Champions Q School in December. The Epson Tour is slated to take place in Scottsdale from May 9 to 12, 2024.

“We are constantly seeking partners who share our goal of giving our athletes the best opportunities to succeed and pursue their dreams of playing on the LPGA Tour, which is exactly what Carlisle has consistently done from day one of this great event.”

“We are proud to partner with the LPGA Epson Tour to bring the Carlisle Arizona Women’s Golf Classic to the Phoenix Community for the next three years. We are honored to provide a sponsorship that will bring the largest ever purse on the LPGA Epson Tour to TPC Scottsdale.”

He went on to say that Carlisle is building the “future of sustainable and energy efficient residential and commercial construction products” thanks to dedicated, diverse and determined teams. He also mentioned that they are happy to support the important women who are the future of professional golf.
