The ShopRite LPGA Classic announced Thursday that the 2013 tournament will be held from Friday, May 31 to Sunday, June 2.

The tournament, which has a $1.5 million purse, will again be held on the Bay Course at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club in Galloway Township.

The 54-hole event, which will be televised on The Golf Channel, also will host a week of pre-tournament events starting on Monday, May 27.

"This Shore tradition continues to grow in popularity due in large part to the wonderful support we receive from dedicated fans, volunteers, partners, and of course, ShopRite," executive director Tim Erensen said in a statement. "We look forward to again bringing world-class entertainment to the Jersey Shore and to do our part in showcasing Greater Atlantic City to millions of golf fans around the world."

Originally known as the Atlantic City Classic, the tournament began in 1986 and was played on several courses near Atlantic City with the first two and last 12 years played at Seaview. Golfing greats Juli Inkster, Nancy Lopez, Betsy King and Annika Sorenstam have won the event. Stacy Lewis won this year.

Since 1992, ShopRite has donated more than $25 million to charities by sponsoring LPGA tournaments.
