After 37 years at Locust Hill Country Club, the LPGA's stop in Rochester is moving to Monroe Golf Club. Whether the Wegman's LPGA Championship stays in Rochester past this year is a different matter.

The LPGA and Monroe Golf Club have a one-year deal in place for 2014 with no word if they plan on leaving the Rochester-area afterward.

On Thursday, Monroe G.C. hosted a press conference detailing the changes for next summer's tournament. It'll run from August 11th through the 17th with tickets going on sale this weekend. Until January 1, 2014, the Championship Clubhouse package will be $99 and will rise to $135 afterward.

The 6,717-yard Donald Ross course hasn't been altered much since being built in 1923. Monroe Golf Club head pro, Jim Mrva, doesn't anticipate much alterations coming between now and the first tee time in August.
