Daytona Beach, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The LPGA announced Friday that the Meijer LPGA Classic at Blythefield Country Club will be added to the 2014 schedule.

This event, which will take place in Grand Rapids, Mich., will mark the first time the LPGA has played in the state since the 2000 Oldsmobile Classic.

"The Midwest has a great history when it comes to women's golf and we are truly excited to partner with a company like Meijer to bring the LPGA Tour back to the state of Michigan," LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan said. "The area has such passionate golf fans and with Meijer's commitment to giving back to their community, this tournament could not be a better fit for the LPGA."

Blythefield Country Club has previously hosted the 1953 Western Amateur, the 1961 Western Open and the 2005 Western Junior.

The city of Grand Rapids had also played host to an event on the Champions Tour for 19 years (1986-2004).
