  TRAVERSE CITY – The Turtle Creek Casino Michigan Open Championship has been postponed until later in the summer and new dates are being determined.

The 2020 Michigan Open was previously scheduled for June 8-11 on The Bear course at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.

  “In the best interest of the tournament we have made the decision to officially postpone the Turtle Creek Casino Michigan Open Championship,” Justin Phillips, tournament director for the Michigan Section PGA, said.

  “With the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation and in the best interest of the safety of everyone involved we feel this is the best course of action at this time. We are working with the staff at Grand Traverse Resort as it is our goal to reschedule the championship for some time yet this year. We are excited about our new sponsor in Turtle Creek Casino and what that brings to the championship and we are optimistic we can hold the event this year.”

  In March it was announced that the best golfers from Michigan would play for the Michigan Open Championship’s largest purse ever this June thanks to a new sponsorship agreement reached with Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel. The 103rd edition of the state championship will have a purse of over $115,000.

  A pro-am, previously planned for two days prior to the championship, is also postponed and Phillips said the hope is to still have that event in conjunction with the championship this year.
