Symetra coming back to River Run CC

Symetra Tour graduate and River Run member Cydney Clanton

Feb. 3. The Symetra Tour is back in 2021 with 20 tournaments, $3.8 million in total purses and a stop in Davidson May 14-16 at River Run Country Club. The tournament was cancelled last year due to the coronavirus.

More than 300 women from at least 40 countries hold Symetra Tour Membership in 2021.

The women’s professional golf tournament has an estimated local economic impact of some $500,000 in direct spending, according to event organizers. All in all, the event brings nearly 300 professional athletes and tour staff to the Lake Norman area who will stay in local hotels and dine in restaurants over the course of six days.

At the end of the season, the top 10 players on the official Race for the Card money list will graduate to the LPGA Tour for the 2022 season. Every year from 2008-2019, the top 10 players have been awarded LPGA Tour Membership. That will happen once again in 2021 as players look to join the 162 graduates before them who made the leap to the LPGA Tour. Those who finish from Nos. 11-35 on the official Race for the Card money list will advance to LPGA Q-Series.
