Credit Union Classic
The Credit Union Classic presented by Wegmans is an annual golf tournament for professional women golfers on the Symetra Tour, the LPGA's developmental tour. The event has been played since 1996 in the Syracuse, New York area.
The title sponsors are three central New York-based credit unions: Empower Federal Credit Union, SEFCU, and The Summit Federal Credit Union. The presenting sponsor is Wegmans, a supermarket chain headquartered in Rochester, New York.
The tournament is a 54-hole event, as are most Symetra Tour tournaments, and includes pre-tournament pro-am opportunities, in which local amateur golfers can play with the professional golfers from the Tour as a benefit for local charities. The current benefiting charity from the Credit Union Classic is the The First Tee of Syracuse, Inc.

“My Christian friends, in bonds of love, whose hearts in sweetest union join,
Your friendships like a drawing band, yet we must take the parting hand.
Your companys sweet, your union dear; Your words delightful to my ear,
Yet when I see that we must part, You draw like cords around my heart.”
—John Blain (18th century)
