Turtle Creek Casino Michigan Open Rescheduled for Aug. 31 – Sept. 3
TRAVERSE CITY – The Turtle Creek Casino Michigan Open Championship has been rescheduled for Aug. 31 through Sept. 3 on The Bear course at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
It was previously scheduled for June 8-11 and postponed due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation.
“We are excited about our new sponsor in Turtle Creek Casino and what that brings to the championship and we are very appreciative of our host facility, Grand Traverse Resort & Spa for their work and support in getting this even rescheduled,” Justin Phillips, tournament director for the Michigan Section PGA, said.
“It will take time to reschedule our qualifiers and we are working on that now. We will have more information on dates and sites for the qualifiers coming soon.”
A pro-am event has also been rescheduled to Aug. 28-29 preceding the championship. Details and information regarding the pro-am will also be released soon.
In March it was announced that the best golfers from Michigan would play for the Michigan Open Championship’s largest purse ever 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.
