"Welcome to here." Can anyone explain to me why the statement above is grammatically correct?

It's grammatically correct, but no one would say it, because we simply don't use "here" in that way.

Found it written in a note and when I checked it in an online grammar checker it says, "No grammar or spelling mistakes found." So I wondered because it doesn't sound right to me also.

It's an unusual construction, but it's analogous to "Welcome to Chicago" or "Welcome to Australia" or "Welcome to prison." The person who said it is using "here" as if it were the name of a place. In this usage, "here" is construed as a noun, even though it's not usually used that way.
It sounds a bit "off" because it's unusual, but it's not "ungrammatical."
