The June 11 event will have 12 flights, six of them senior flights. The players will be matched by age and skill set. The Mill Creek Championship is a qualifying event for the National Championship which will be held at Innisbrook Golf Resort in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
Brian Tolnar, PGA Director of Golf for Mill Creek MetroParks, provided this comment when asked about the Golf Channel Amateur Tour, “to be added to a tour schedule that includes courses such as TPC Sawgrass, Pinehurst, and Chambers Bay is very exciting. I think it speaks to the work we have put in at Mill Creek Golf Course in the past year. Not only to improve the course, but to build relationships in the golf community. Our team and I are thrilled to bring this event to the Valley.”
