Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc is poised to host a leg of the PGA Tour Champions tournament, most likely in 2018, with Ally Financial as the main sponsor.
The PGA Tour issued a media alert today stating it will make a major announcement on Tuesday at Warwick Hills.
Invited speakers include Greg McLaughlin, president of PGA Tour Champions; Andrea Riley, chief marketing and public relations officer at Ally Financial; Trent Marshall, president of Warwick Hills; Chris Coffman with HNS Sports Group; and Mark O’Meara, World Golf Hall of Fame member.
The tour features many of the world’s top 50-and-over golfers, including Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Joe Durant, Scott McCarron, Fred Funk, Vijay Singh, Tom Lehman, and Fred Couples.
Warwick Hills has long hosted the Buick Open, but it discontinued the tournament in 2009 due to economic concerns and the lack of a major sponsor.
