Oakland Hills Country Club will host the 2017 Michigan PGA Yamaha Golf Cars /Ahead Pro Pro Championship

Bath, MI – The Michigan PGA Section will return to Oakland Hills Country Club next year as they will host the 2017 Yamaha Golf Cars Plus / Ahead Pro – Pro Championship on Monday, May 8th .Teams will play 36 holes using both the North and South Courses in this best ball format.

This will be the second time that they have hosted this event as it was held there back in 2001. 113 teams competed that year with no other than Jeff Roth and Steve Brady winning with a (-15) under par total. Steve was named the head golf professional of Oakland Hills Country Club last year after Pat Croswell retired. Steve had been the Director of Instruction there since 1997.

Oakland Hills Country Club was founded in 1916 and the famous South Course designed by Donald Ross opened in 1918. Walter Hagen, five time PGA Champion, was the club’s first head professional. The South Course has played host to 17 Major Championships including: six U.S. Opens; two U.S. Senior Opens; U.S. Women’s Amateur; Western Open; the Carling World Open; the 35th Ryder Cup in 2004; three PGA Championships and two U.S. Men’s Amateurs Championships including the most recent on this past year.

We are excited to have both Yamaha Golf Cars Plus and Ahead back as title sponsors of this event. This will be the 3rd year in a row that Yamaha Golf Cars Plus has sponsored this event. Ahead came on board and joined Yamaha last year as co title sponsors when the event was held at Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club.
