The Marathon Classic is back at the Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania.
Practice rounds begin Monday.
Sixty thousand people are expected to turn out to watch 144 of the best women golfers in the world.
This is the 29th year the LPGA tour has swung through the area.
The winner will take home $200,000.
But as they say, the real winner will be 22 northwest Ohio children's charities.
"I think we're going to set an attendance record for our tournament this year. And I think we're going to set a record for charitable dollars," said tournament director Judd Silverman.
Helping children is one of the reasons the Marathon Classic has no problem attracting volunteers year in and year out.
One thousand volunteers will be doing everything from driving shuttles to keeping score.
"The kids that we help. There's actually charities coming out here today to help us get ready for the tournament. For me, that's the biggest part. Seeing charities get money at the end of the year," said volunteer Sherri Kaspar.
New this year, all active military, police and fire personnel will be admitted free along with a guest.
There's also a big push to attract families.
Kids under the age of seventeen will be admitted free.
"We've got a kids zone this year for the kids. We're going to let them hit some golf balls into a simulator, and there'll be face painting and other activities for them," said Mr. Silverman.
But one tradition returns on Thursday, the first day of the tournament.
Seniors not only get free admission but receive free parking.
