The championship will be played June 14-17 on The Bear course at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in a return to the tournament’s traditional dates and one of its favorite traditional tournament sites. Last year the tournament was delayed until August due to pandemic concerns.

Registration for this year’s nine qualifiers is on the Michigan Section PGA website (www.michiganpga.com). The entry fees are $180 for amateur golfers, $205 for a Michigan PGA Professional and $355 for a non-PGA professional.

For the second consecutive year Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel is the title sponsor for the state championship, which is being played for the 104th time.

Eligibility for the championship is open to all male golfers who have established and maintained a domicile in the state of Michigan thirty (30) days prior to the championship, or any Michigan Section member in good standing having been employed for no less than thirty (30) days at a recognized golf facility prior to the championship

Last year Brett White, a 27-year-old mini-tour professional from Caledonia shot a closing 3-under 69 for a wire-to-wire five shot win on The Bear and took home the John D.

Congratulations to the team of Brian Cairns from Fox Hills Learning Center and Ben Cook from Yankee Springs Golf Course on winning the 2021 Yamaha Golf Cars Plus / John Bond Pro Pro Championship.

We had a great field of 70 teams Monday competing on both Stoatin Brae Golf Course and Stonehedge South Golf Course in this 36 hole best ball event.

The light rain in the morning round cleared out and made for a nice afternoon. After their morning round of 66 at Stonehedge South Ben and Brian found themselves 3 shots back to the teams of Jacob Connell from Red Run Golf Club and Tim Pearce from Birmingham Country Club as well as the team of Jim Deiters from Midland Country Club and Kyle Dobbs from Walnut Creek Country Club.

Ben and Brian caught fire late in their second round going -7 under on their last 10 holes for a round of 63 at Stoatin Brae, good enough for a 2 shot victory and their first Pro Pro Championship title.

We would to thank our host Gull Lake View Properties and the staff at both Stoatin Brae and Stonehedge South. The golf courses were in great shape and all of their staff did a great job making this event a success.

We would also like to thank our sponsors . This is the 7th year that Yamaha Golf Cars Plus has been a sponsor of this event ! We appreciate their support of this event and the Michigan PGA Section.

We would also like to thank John Bond for stepping up and supporting this event as a sponsor this year as well. John is a Ferris State PGM alum and recently relocated back to his home state now living in Kalamazoo, Michigan after moving from Denver where he was previously with Pukka Headwear.

Zavadil, Bastion, Johnson, Kreger win the Club Car Spring Scramble presented by PlayMakar

South Lyon, MI – It took two extra holes to decide the winner as the team of professional Matt Zavadil from Oakland University Golf & Learning Center and his amateur partners Brad Bastion, Chad Johnson and Austin Kreger picked up the win and survived the three- team playoff.

A sold-out opening event kicked off the Michigan PGA Section Tournament season on Monday as 36 teams competed in this 4 person team scramble event at Walnut Creek Golf & Country Club. Cold morning weather a difficult course set up and fast and firm greens made for tough scoring conditions.

At the end of the day we had three teams tied at the top with scores of (-13) under par, 59. The other two teams advancing to the playoff were professionals Jeff Gniewek and Chris Zito from Knollwood CC, PGA Life Member Barry Pearce and Payne Gniewek from Barton Hills CC along with the team of father / daughter Tom Harding from Carls Golfland and Caroline Harding from Meadowbrook CC, Kevin Muir from The Wyndgate and George Bowman from Oakhurst Golf & CC.

On hole #1 of the North Course Chad Johnson made about a 30-foot putt for birdie for his team followed up with Caroline Harding making about a 20 foot putt for birdie to advance their team to the next playoff hole. The team of Gniewek, Gniewek, Zito and Pearce could not get their birdie putt to fall. Down to two teams Austin Kreger rolled in about a 20-foot putt for birdie at the par 3 8th hole to clinch the win for his team !

We would like to thank our sponsors of this event – this is the 30th year in a row that Club Car has been the title sponsor for this event! We would like to thank the team from Midwest Golf & Turf - David Higham, Paul Wiltsie and John Bissell for their continued support of this event. They were all on site yesterday and provided a Hole in One Golf Car for the event.
We would also like to thank our new presenting sponsor PlayMakar. Tim Grombala, their sales representative was onsite yesterday and provided a new Massage Gun from PlayMakar that went to professional Josh Stoddard from Oak Pointe CC for the Closest to the Pin on Hole #9 South.

We would also like to thank or host site Walnut Creek Golf & Country Club for hosting the event. Their staff did a great job, and the golf course was in great firm and fast tournament condition early in the season.

The Michigan PGA is proud to be a part of the Michigan Golf Alliance and it is very nice for the MGA to be recognized by the @ngcoa for its efforts this past year! Check out the link in our bio to view the video!

Kevin Helm, Executive Director of the Michigan PGA said, "It was my pleasure working with the leaders from the allied associations who make up the MGA. Together, we were able to represent the golf industry as we communicated with the state government representatives and help interpret and communicate the various executive orders and how they applied to golf operations."

EAST LANSING – The 2020 pandemic efforts of the Michigan Golf Alliance have been recognized with the Champion Award by the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA).

“Each year the NGCOA recognizes those that have helped preserve the tradition of the game while embracing the challenges and opportunities of the golf business, and it’s wonderful that they see the same thing we see – that the teamwork of the Alliance on behalf of the Michigan golf industry truly exemplified those things,” said Jada Paisley, executive director of the Michigan Golf Course Association (MGCA) in announcing the honor today.

The NGCOA’s Champion Award is bestowed upon individuals or entities that have succeeded in working on behalf of a group of owners and have garnered significant victory for its members.

The Michigan Golf Alliance, a cooperative body of five state golf associations formed in 2008, worked and lobbied on behalf of the golf industry in 2020 communicating with government officials through the pandemic to clarify industry needs, safety protocols and executive order compliance.

“The Alliance stepped up and led the way when the pandemic response was changing dramatically day-by-day,” Paisley said. “It was a tremendous example of teamwork for all the golf courses and the golfers in our state, as well as a great industry that benefits Michigan in so many important ways beyond its $4.2 billion in economic impact.”

Alliance members include the Michigan Golf Course Association, the Golf Association of Michigan, the Michigan Section PGA, the Michigan Golf Course Superintendents Association, and the Greater Michigan Club Management Association. Although the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation (MTF) could not be part of the government advocacy due to its non-profit status, Paisley said the Alliance would like to recognize the MTF for information the group collects and continues to provide regarding turf research.

The Michigan PGA is proud to announce that Stephanie Jennings, PGA, is the first female officer elected to the Michigan PGA Board of Directors!

Jennings will serve as the Section’s Secretary and is currently the Head Women’s Golf Coach at Eastern Michigan University. In her spare time, she works with a good friend and assists a PGA Junior League team out of Bay Pointe Golf Club in West Bloomfield, MI.

We caught up with Stephanie and asked her, "As the first female officer, what influence do you feel you may have on other females to run for the Board of Directors going forward?

Jennings replied, "I am friends with a few of the female members in our Section. However, my goal is to build rapport with more of our female members and associates and to encourage them to get involved in some capacity. Whether it's volunteering at an event, serving on a committee, or running for a Board position, I feel that you receive a more complete experience with your Section when you give a little of your time."

"I feel that my diverse background and work experience brings a different perspective to our Board. From working for a national women's golf association to building and executing player development programs for three public facilities, I've been fortunate to gain very valuable experience that I feel will aid in the decision-making process with my fellow Board members."
