The Michigan Golf Hall of Fame (MGHOF), which
is managed by the Michigan Golf Foundation, is selling $20 tickets making it
possible for three winners to cross one of the hall of fame worthy courses off
their “Bucket List.”
Just 550 tickets are being sold for the
following selection of prizes: golf for 2 at Crystal Downs Country Club; golf
for 3 at Oakland Hills Country Club on the famed South Course; 27 holes of golf
for 2 and 1 night’s lodging at Bay Harbor Golf Club. Scroll down to order.
The “Bucket List” fundraiser supports the
MGHOF, which through the Michigan Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, conducts
an annual election and hosts an outing and induction ceremony. This year’s
induction will be Saturday, June 3, at Ferris State University’s Katke Golf
Club. That’s where and when the three winners will be drawn for “The Bucket
List Raffle” in concert with the induction of the Hall of Fame Class of 2017.
The recently announced class includes PGA
Master Professional Bob Ackerman of West Bloomfield, PGA Professional Brian
Cairns of Walled Lake, PGA Tour veteran Tom Gillis of Lake Orion, former LPGA
Tour player Suzy Green-Roebuck of Ann Arbor, the late Alex Ross of Detroit who
was a U.S. Open winner 110 years ago, and Michigan State University women’s
golf coach and 15-time Golf Association of Michigan tournament winner Stacy
Slobodnik-Stoll of Haslett.
“Bucket List” fundraiser should not be confused with the capital campaign that
Ferris is currently conducting for expansion of its PGA Golf Management program
facilities (PGM Learning Center) at Katke GC. That campaign, which is closing
in on its $4 million goal, does have more than a strong link to the Michigan
Golf Hall of Fame. The new facilities at Ferris will be the new home of the MGHOF’s
heralded collection of portraits, plaques and memorabilia commemorating 113
members, including the likes of Walter Hagen, Chuck Kocsis, Dave Hill, Dan
Pohl, Meg Mallon and Kelly Robbins.
