Michigan Golf Hall of Fame “Bucket List” Raffle Part of West Michigan Golf Show
GRAND RAPIDS – Crystal Downs Country Club near Frankfort, Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Township and Forest Dunes Golf Club in Roscommon feature renowned golf courses of the ultimate “Bucket List” variety.
Golfers visiting the West Michigan Golf Show Friday, Saturday and Sunday at DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids – in addition to taking in all the 28th annual show has to offer – will be able to purchase for $20 a golden ticket of opportunity to cross one of those hall of fame worthy courses off their “Bucket List.”
The Michigan Golf Hall of Fame (MGHOF), which is managed by the Michigan Golf Foundation, is making it possible via “The Bucket List Raffle” at booth No. 1214 at the show.
Just 500 tickets will be sold at $20 each for the following selection of prizes: golf for 2 at Crystal Downs Country Club; golf for 3 at Oakland Hills Country Club on the famed South Course; golf for 4 and 1 night’s lodging at Forest Dunes Golf Club in Roscommon.
The “Bucket List” fundraiser will support the MGHOF, which through the Michigan Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, conducts an annual election and hosts an outing and induction ceremony. This year’s induction will be June 5 at Katke Golf Club on the campus of Ferris State University. That’s where and when the three winners will be drawn for “The Bucket List Raffle.”
The “Bucket List” fundraiser should not be confused with the capital campaign that Ferris is currently conducting for expansion of its PGA Golf Management program facilities (PGM Learning Center) at Katke GC. That campaign, which is nearly halfway to its $4 million goal, does have a strong link to the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame. The new facilities at Ferris will be the new home of the MGHOF’s heralded collection of portraits, plaques and memorabilia commemorating 109 members, including the likes of Walter Hagen, Chuck Kocsis, Dave Hill, Dan Pohl, Meg Mallon and Kelly Robbins.
Produced by ShowSpan, Inc., the West Michigan Golf Show is sponsored by Treetops Resort, Applied Imaging, the Golf Association of Michigan, the Michigan PGA and Bridgestone Golf. Hours are 2 p.m. -9 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults, $4 for children ages 6-14, and children 5 and under are free. Tickets will be available at the door as well as online at www.westmichigangolfshow.com
