Turtle Creek Casino Michigan Open Championship Postponed

The Michigan PGA announced Monday the postponement of the Turtle Creek Casino Michigan Open Championship.

Originally scheduled for June 8-11 at The Bear course at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, the event has been postponed until later this summer and new dates are being determined.

The tournament’s pro-am, originally scheduled for two days prior to the Michigan Open Championship, has also been postponed.

“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 in a release.

“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.”
