Engaging activities for youth and their families will be featured on "Youth Day," Saturday, June 22, during the KPMG Women's PGA Championship at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota.
Youth Day will provide an opportunity for young people to see the best golfers in the world play in a major championship while they try their hand at golf and participate in numerous fun activities. The full schedule includes:

- Youth Giveaway – While supplies last, kids who visit the Youth Fun Zone will receive a souvenir Championship-branded golf ball to take home.
“Bringing youth closer to the game of golf has been a priority for the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship from the start,” said Championship Director Renee DeLosh. “We are excited to create opportunities for kids to participate in fun golf activities and to offer complimentary youth tickets, making championship level golf accessible to young people and their families.”
The KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, a collaboration of the PGA of America, KPMG, and the LPGA, combines the rich tradition of the LPGA Championship with the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit and KPMG Future Leaders Program -- all focused on the development, advancement, and empowerment of women on and off the golf course. One of five majors in women’s professional golf, the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship (June 18-23) will bring together 156 of the top female golfers in the world.
