Accessible LPGA Tour golf courses: 10 options for playing where the pros play

Dreaming of playing the golf courses that the tour pros play, but didn't think they were accessible or affordable? Maybe you should expand your horizons and look beyond the PGA Tour to the LPGA Tour.

While it's true that a large number of events are in Asia and Europe (including Turnberry for the Ricoh Women's British Open), the LPGA plays many of its events at resort and public venues across North America and the Caribbean. Some are little pricey, of course, but many of them are quite affordable, including two on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama.

Here's a look at 10 courses on the LPGA Tour schedule that everyone can play.
