Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning and O-I

The tournament has become a highlighted stop on the LPGA tour. It was voted 5th favorite of all the stops. The purse has grown substantially from that first year to $1,400,000. The tournament has become a huge event in Northwest Ohio/Southeast Michigan attracting over 70,000 spectators. The community support has grown significantly over the years and is the largest sporting event in the area.  The tournament attracts all ages to watch the greatest women golfers in the world compete. 

The Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning and O-I (Owens Illinois) has made the hopes and dreams come true for many NWO children. The tournament was first held in 1984 at Glengarry Country Club (presently Stone Oak Country Club) until 1988 when it moved to Highland Meadows Golf Club.
In 1984 the purse was only $175,000 and 100 golfers played in the tournament. Since that first tournament, the growth of the event has been due to the support of many local businesses and strong community support.
