Six prizes mean six winners in the 2019 Michigan Golf Hall of Fame Raffle, which means it has never been more fun to make a six.
Play at Crystal Downs, Arcadia Bluffs or Barton Hills, and watch the PGA and play at Detroit Golf Club, or the LPGA at Blythefield Country Club or the PGA Tour Champions at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club. Six winners will be chosen from 550 tickets being sold at $20 each.
As in the previous MGHOF raffles, there is bucket list golf, but the fundraiser that supports the Hall of Fame through the non-profit Michigan Golf Foundation has added three great golfer/fan options in conjunction with the PGA’s Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club, the Meijer LPGA Classic at Blythefield Country Club and the Champions Tour’s Ally Challenge at Warwick Hills.
Winners who select the golfer/fan options will get four passes to the tournaments, as well as the opportunity to play the hosts courses with a foursome.
As for the bucket list golf, this year’s selection is again award-winning and exclusive with golf for three with a member at Crystal Downs Country Club in Frankfort, golf for four on the new South Course at Arcadia Bluffs in Arcadia, and golf for four at the classic Barton Hills Country Club in Ann Arbor with a special twist – Barton Hills member and Michigan Golf Hall of Famer Suzy Green-Roebuck will provide a free tips session for the foursome in conjunction with the visit.
Tickets are on sale now online for just $20. Go to http://events.eventease.com/mghof/ .
Tickets went on sale at the recent West Michigan Golf Show and will remain on sale through the June 1 drawing, held in conjunction with the June 2 MGHOF induction of the 2019 Hall of Fame class that will be announced next week.
The MGHOF is a heralded collection of portraits, plaques and memorabilia that currently commemorates 123 members, including Walter Hagen, Chuck Kocsis, Horton Smith and more current notables Dave and Mike Hill, Dan Pohl, Meg Mallon and Kelly Robbins. The collection will soon be housed and displayed in the new Ken Janke Sr. Golf Learning Center at Ferris State University’s Katke Golf Club. The late Ken Janke Sr. is a member of the MGHOF and was the Hall of Fame’s co-founder.
The MGHOF is administered by the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame Committee, which is funded through the non-profit Michigan Golf Foundation (501(c) (3) since 1996) and includes 18 people representing a cross-section of the state’s golf associations as well as golf media. The MGHOF committee conducts an annual election to recognize the achievements of competitive Michigan golfers, but also accomplishments of individuals who have contributed to the growth of the game.
