Sneller encourages PGA to tour MI
LANSING — State Rep. Tim Sneller (D-Burton) introduced House Bill 5190 to expand the Michigan Liquor Control Code to include the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) Tour Champions Tournament in the list of sporting events to be issued a national sporting event liquor license. The Buick Open is expected to return to Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club in Grand Blanc next year.
“For years, golf tournaments in our community attracted some of the top names in golf,” Sneller said. “It only makes sense that we encourage the tour to return to Grand Blanc by allowing them to receive this license. This world-class golf tournament will … result in an increase in tourism dollars to hotels, restaurants, stores and other local businesses.” – L.R.
