Greg Johnson, Media Coordinator for the tournament, says that viewers are encouraged to come and support Michigan golfers.
“So you can come out and watch those guys play and just learn from watching them,” Johnson said. “You can watch them match play. This course is easy to walk, it’s pretty and parking’s free and so is the ticket. All you have to do is walk and stay away and don’t get hit by a golf ball.”
The tournament is open to those who want to watch from the side. The tournament will take place, rain or shine unless there is lightning spotted.
