The staff at Boyne Highlands did a great job and the golf courses were in great shape. We had a slight weather delay late the first day, but other than that the weather was great.

A big thanks to our title sponsor of this event, Nike Golf. This is the second year in a row that Nike has sponsored the event. The staff from Nike was onsite as they have set up a mobile pro shop here in the clubhouse.
