Yamaha Golf Cars /Ahead Pro Pro Championship at Oakland Hills Country Club

Bloomfield Hills, MI – The Michigan PGA Yamaha Golf Cars Plus / Ahead Pro Pro Championship will visit the famed Oakland Hills Country Club this Monday. The sold out field of 108 teams will play both the North and the South Course in this 36 hole best ball format.

The morning shotgun kicks off at 8:30am. The team of Dan Urban from Gull Lake Country Club and Jim Troy from the Golf Performance Academy will look to defend their title as the will tee off on the South course for their opening round. Dan and Jim  won last year at Arcadia Bluffs with a 36 hole score of 131 (-13) under.

This will be the second time that Oakland Hills Country Club has hosted this event as it was held there back in 2001 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.
