There has been speculation about it for months but on Thursday, LPGA officials announced that the tournament will be moving to a new location.

The 2014 tournament will take place at Monroe Golf Club. This comes after 37 years at Locust Hill Country Club.

There's another change to the tournament too -- it will now be held later in the summer. Next year's tournament will be the week of August 11 -- a change from its usual June date of play.

Officials for the LPGA say they hope the move will help bring new interest to the tournament and a new experience for the players.

News10NBC is told there are still a lot of logistics that need to be worked out but officials are confident Monroe Golf Club is the right choice for the tournament in the future.
