MAINEVILLE, OH  -- The Kroger Queen City Championship presented by P&G announced today TPC River’s Bend will be the official host venue, welcoming 144 of the world’s best golfers this September 16-22 competing for a purse of $2 million.

TPC River’s Bend, owned by Arcis Golf – the second largest owner and operator of private, resort and daily fee golf facilities in the United States – is no stranger to world-class golf. The Maineville, Ohio club hosted the PGA TOUR Champions Kroger Classic (2002-2004), the Korn Ferry Tour Chiquita Classic (2010-2015), and the EPSON Tour’s Prasco Charity Championship (2018, 2019, 2021).

“We are so excited to showcase TPC River’s Bend on a global stage,” said Blake Walker, CEO and Founder, Arcis Golf. “We look forward to welcoming the LPGA Tour, partners, and fans this September.”

Additionally, Walker said, “Arcis Golf has a proven track record of supporting women’s golf and is committed to inclusion and growing interest and participation in the game.” In April, Arcis will host the first two rounds of the prestigious Augusta National Women’s Amateur at Champions Retreat Golf Club in Evans GA, and has a partnership with Lilia Vu, LPGA star and World No. 2, who serves as an Arcis brand ambassador.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished over the past two years and are excited to continue to partner with P&G and the LPGA to engage and empower women both on and off the golf course as we work to inspire hundreds of local Cincinnati women through the Game Changers platform,” said Kate Meyer, Kroger Health & Beauty Vice President.
