‘Island’ golf to tee off June 27-29

HARRIS – Sweetgrass Golf Club will kick off preparations this month for the fourth LPGA Symetra Tour’s Island Resort Championship June 27-29.

Sponsorship slots are sold out for the pro-am tournament Wednesday and Thursday during championship week. The Delta County Chamber of Commerce commenced volunteer recruiting and area non-profits have dedicated manpower to sell tickets in return for fund-raising dollars.

“This tournament has become the highlight of the golf season, drawing tourism dollars and national exposure to our course and region,” said Tony Mancilla, event co-chair and attorney for the Hannahville band of the Potawatomi Nation, owners and operators of the resort and course.
