With the excitement of China winning its first Olympic golf medal still fresh, the return of the Reignwood LPGA Classic to Beijing will further raise the game's profile in China.

The Reignwood Classic, an event on the 2016 Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour, will be held for the third time at the capital's Pine Valley Golf Club from Sept 29-Oct 2. The event's total purse is Asia's largest for a golf tournament, at $2.1 million.

A total number of 81 elite players, including 62 LPGA stars and 15 Chinese players will compete in 72-hole no-cut stroke-play for both the cash prizes and the 500 ranking points which will go to the winner.
