monaco-logoWith the 2009 LPGA Navistar Classic right around the corner, Navistar International Corp. announced that the latest addition to its portfolio of best-in-class vehicle brands, Monaco RV LLC, will be the presenting sponsor at this year’s golf tournament in Prattville, Ala.

Played at one of the country’s most pristine golf courses, the Capitol Hill Course of Alabama’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, and presented by Monaco RV, one of the nation’s most luxurious RV brands, the 2009 LPGA Navistar Classic will take place Sept. 28 through Oct. 4.

“It’s a privilege to be the presenting sponsor for the 2009 LPGA Navistar Classic,” said Kay Toolson, president of Monaco RV. “This is an exciting event that celebrates the exhilaration and enthusiasm of LPGA golf and our sponsorship positions our brand well with fans and followers of the LPGA, many of who may own and operate recreational vehicles.”

A full field of 144 of the world’s top women golfers will be competing yet again, as the 2009 Navistar LPGA Classic returns to Prattville for its annual four-day tournament. This is the third year of the tournament and officials have already confirmed that top-rated golfers such as Lorena Ochoa, Natalie Gulbis, Anna Rawson and Se Ri Pak have committed to attend the event.

Ochoa captured the 2008 Navistar LPGA Classic title after defeating Cristie Kerr and Candie Kung in a nail-biting three-way, two-hole playoff. The win represented her 24th career victory. The 28-year-old is currently ranked No. 1 in the world, according the Rolex Women’s Golf Rankings.

Navistar will have a full range of commercial vehicles, buses and recreational vehicles on display at the event this year.
