The Women's British Open dates back to 1976. The tournament has been a major on the LPGA Tour since 2001. Yani Tseng (2010, 2011) and Jiyai Shin (2008, 2012) hold the record for most wins in this tournament since it became a LPGA major in 2001.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2016 Marathon Classic is $3 million. The same amount of prize money as last year.

The amounts below are based upon the payouts for this golf major for last year. Due to the crazy currency fluctuations taking place in 2016 the money might vary a bit but the prize money is listed in dollars on both the LPGA and Ladies European Tour websites. The money could also vary a bit if more than 70 women make the cut this year.
