PORTLAND, OR (August 20, 2020) – The Cambia Portland Classic announced today that the 49th edition will take place as scheduled, September 17-20 at Columbia Edgewater Country Club, but will be played without fans for this year.
Won last year by Australia’s Hannah Green, the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship Champion, the 49th Cambia Portland will take place without spectators following close consultation and collaboration with partners Cambia and the state and local health officials.
The event, which is known for standout winners with former champions including ten-time major winner Annika Sorenstam, hall of famer Lorena Ochoa, Solheim Cup hero Suzann Pettersen and, more recently, Canada’s most successful golfer, Brooke Henderson is only one year shy of an incredible 50 years of staging and is set to secure another star-studded field this year.
“This year marks Cambia’s seventh year as title sponsor of the Portland Classic and we are honored to support this event virtually to ensure the safety and wellness of our community, volunteers and amazing athletes,” said Mark Ganz, CEO of Cambia Health Solutions. “We will miss being at the tournament together but will be no less excited to watch from our homes, cheering on the players as they demonstrate resiliency and hope, inspiring us all when we need it most.”
