BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — It’s only fitting that The Course That Jack Built on the shores of Lake Michigan would become the “summer home” of the Senior PGA Tour.
But the Tour could do worse than to put down stake in the sandy soil of stunning Harbor Shores Golf Club, on the beaches of Lake Michigan in the little town of Benton Harbor, Mich.
The 75th Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid returns to the Golden Bear-designed club May 22-25, 2014, for the second time since 2012. That year saw Englishman Roger Chapman take home the trophy.
Chapman’s back this year, along with 2013 champ, Japan’s Kohki Idoki, who won last year at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. Add in fan favorites Mark Calcavecchia, Bruce Fleisher, Bernard Langer, Hale Irwin, and Tom Watson, and you have an extra-special 75th edition of the Senior Tour’s most prestigious event.
“The origin of the Senior PGA Championship begins with legendary Bobby Jones, who invited PGA Professionals to Augusta National Golf Club to open a competition that celebrated their skills as much as their service to golf,” said PGA of America President Ted Bishop. “Through the years, this Championship has featured many special moments and crowned outstanding Champions. The PGA of America and our presenting sponsor KitchenAid share the excitement of marking the 75th edition of this historic Championship at Harbor Shores where golf fans can continue to walk with history.”
Tickets start at just $15 for this prestigious event, with day passes $30 during the competition. Click here for more information, or call 800-PGA-GOLF.
Can’t make it this week? The Senior PGA Championship returns to Harbor Shores once again in 2016 and 2018! Like we said, it’s the Senior Tour’s summer home.
