John Deere and the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) have announced a new multi-year partnership, solidifying John Deere's position as the Official Golf Course Equipment Supplier of the LPGA Tour. This partnership underscores their joint commitment to bolstering female representation in golf and providing exceptional playing experiences for athletes worldwide.

"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with John Deere, reinforcing our shared commitment to advancing women in golf and delivering top-notch playing experiences worldwide for our athletes, said Nicole Metzger, Chief Sales and Partnerships Officer, LPGA. "As John Deere remains the Official Golf Course Equipment Supplier of the LPGA Tour and further enhances their support as the Official Sponsor and Equipment Supplier for the 2024 Solheim Cup, we are excited to collaborate closely with them even more."

The 2024 Solheim Cup, set to take place at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, will benefit from the expertise of John Deere and the LPGA in course management. The collaboration aims to deliver exceptional playing conditions using cutting-edge equipment and technology solutions. John Deere's involvement in previous Solheim Cups, held at prestigious venues like Gleneagles PGA Centenary Course and Inverness Club, demonstrates their commitment to excellence in golf course management.

"It has been an incredible past three years working with the LPGA team," said Manny Gan, global director of golf, John Deere. "We are honored to continue our relationship and look forward to supporting the upcoming 2024 Solheim Cup, underscoring our commitment to providing an exceptional playing experience at the top courses around the world while continuing to empower women in the game of golf."

The 2024 Solheim Cup, scheduled for September, marks a significant milestone as the first major women's competition hosted at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. With U.S. Captain Stacy Lewis and European Captain Suzann Pettersen leading their respective teams, the event promises to showcase the talent of the best professional female golfers from the United States and Europe.
