PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — All play in the LPGA Tour’s Cambia Portland Classic has been canceled for Saturday due to poor course conditions brought on from heavy rain, the LPGA announced Saturday.

The weekend event — held at Oregon Golf Club, which received 1.5 inches of rain Friday night — was canceled citing safety concerns for fans, volunteers, players and staff.

Earlier in the morning, the tournament announced its closure to only spectators for Saturday’s events.

Officials said it’s not clear whether the tournament will resume in full Sunday morning as the decision is dependent on weather and course conditions.

Daily spectator tickets are valid for Sunday, organizers said.

KOIN 6 will update this story as more information becomes available.
