Championship Site
We are excited as this will be the third year that the Championship will be held at Prestwick Village Golf Club, which is located just north of Milford in Highland Township. Prestwick Village Golf Club provided a great championship atmosphere the last two years and will do the same again this year. Award-winning and internationally renowned architect Ron Garl designed the championship course. The club’s stellar and expansive 26-acre practice facility was selected as a 2012 Golf Range Association of America Top 50 Range in the Private Category by PGA Magazine.

Championship Sponsor
We excited to announce that LaFontaine Automotive Group is once again the presenting sponsor of the event. LaFontaine will once again be adding to the Championship experience by providing lunch to all the players and caddies at Prestwick Village Golf Club.

The LaFontaine Automotive Group is located at 4000 West Highland Road in Highland Township, features the famous “LaFontaine Family Deal,” which offers its customers more than the best price on a new or pre-owned vehicle. It also offers the attitude and approach to business developed and nurtured by the LaFontaine family since the company founding in 1980.
