About this tournament

Welcome to the 2nd annual Michigan Professional State Championships

$3,000 ADDED CASH


Just so everyone is informed, this year there is NO BERTH REQUIREMENT to register for this event. Berths are only being awarded only for the Amateur Championships. We are proud to award both the male and female Amateur State Champions(advanced divisions) free entries into the Michigan Professional State Championships again this year.

MPO, FPO, and Age protected divisions will be split into 2-3 pools depending on the number of registrants. All divisions will play one round at each of the three courses.

Any amateur status player who participates in this event, must accept cash payouts per PDGA rules and guidelines. There are no merchandise payouts in professional divisions at A tier or above.
