LPGA Peach Blossom Open Tournament

The Peach Blossom Open was a golf tournament in the early history of the LPGA Tour, played from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, in South Carolina.

This event was hosted by Betsy Rawls, who also won it back to back in 1956-57. Louise Suggs won the first two, and another consecutive champion was Wiffi Smith — but Smith won three in a row, 1958-60.
