Florida's Natural Charity Championship


Florida's Natural Charity Championship

The Florida's Natural Charity Championship Hosted by Nancy Lopez was a golf tournament for professional female golfers that was part of the LPGA Tour from 1992 through 2006. For most of those years it was known as the Chick-fil-A Charity Championship. It was played annually at the Eagle's Landing Country Club in Stockbridge, Georgia.

The title sponsor from 1995 to 2005 was Chick-fil-A, a fast-food restaurant chain headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, that specializes in chicken sandwiches. In 2006, Florida's Natural, a cooperative of Florida citrus growers took over title sponsorship.

It was announced in August 2006 that the tournament had been cancelled because of the lack of a sponsor for 2007.[1]

LPGA Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez was associated with the tournament as its official host. She presented the Nancy Lopez Award to the world's best female amateur golfer at a banquet held each year during the tournament week. It is unclear where the Nancy Lopez Award ceremony will now be held.
