Grand Geneva Resort & Spa Announces Golf Season Opening, Alongside Spring and Fall Golf Classic Tournaments
The AAA Four-Diamond Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, owned and managed by Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, will kick off the 2015 golf season on March 28, 2015. In addition, Grand Geneva has set the dates for the inaugural Spring Golf Classic for Sunday, May 31, 2015, and the second annual Fall Golf Classic will take place Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015. Both 18-hole tournaments will be held on the award-winning Brute course.
“Not only are we eager for golf season to commence, but we’re excited to host two Golf Classics this year, which really serves as a ‘thank you’ to our golf community,” said David Hallenbeck, director of golf. “We want to offer our loyal fan base an exciting way to celebrate all the memories made here with a Spring and Fall Golf Classic.”
Hosted on the famed par-72 Brute course, both Golf Classics will truly test players’ skills. The Brute plays over 7,000 yards, making it one of the longest courses in the United States. A Robert Bruce Harris original, the course includes elevated greens, 68 sand traps and water hazards on nine holes.
Both tournaments are a full day event. On May 31, the Golf Classic starts with registration and lunch at 12:30 p.m. followed by a 1:30 p.m. shotgun kickoff, and ending with a reception and awards ceremony. The tournament can be entered in either a scramble or a best ball division. Teams of four can compete for fantastic prizes including overnight packages, complimentary rounds of golf and more.
The cost to enter Grand Geneva’s Spring Golf Classic is $129 per player, plus tax. Those interested can call (262) 248-2556 to register their foursome. For guests interested in staying overnight, a special $79 room rate is available for Sunday, May 31, 2015.
