Award-Winning Prestwick Village Golf Club Hosting GAM Senior Four-Ball Championship

   HIGHLAND –
Prestwick Village Golf Club’s championship-tested venue will host the 11th GAM
Senior Four-Ball Championship presented by Sullivan Golf Travel Monday and
Tuesday.

  A field of 66
two-golfer teams, including 46 teams in the senior division (age 55-plus) and
20 in the super senior division (age 65-plus), will battle over two days and 36
holes on the course that has hosted the last four Michigan Open Championships,
including this summer’s 100
th edition of the Michigan PGA’s state
championship.

   Prestwick will
challenge the field with a variety of golf holes, including some links style,
traditional parkland and some carved from woodlands. It is located just north
of Milford in Highland Township on 426 acres of natural, rolling terrain amid a
family-focused community.

  Award-winning and internationally renowned
architect Ron Garl designed the championship course. The club’s expansive
26-acre practice facility has previously been selected as a Golf Range
Association of America Top 50 Range in the Private Category by PGA Magazine.

  Defending champions
Randy Lewis and Roy Schultheiss, who also won in 2014, return to head the field
that includes most of the top senior players in the state.

   Schultheiss of Bay
City and Lewis of Alma used a hot start by Lewis and bogey-free golf to win a
year ago at Battle Creek Country Club. They fired a final-round 6-under 66 for
10-under 134 and a three-shot win.

  John Lindholm of Grand Blanc and John French
of Santa Monica shot 69 for 140 to win the super senior division a year ago.
They also return to this year’s super senior field.

  Prestwick Village’s
golf staff is headed by PGA professional Brent Goulding, and Eric Davey is the
superintendent. The course can play as long as 7,142 yards and offers six tee
positions.
