Four Winds Invitational to be held without spectators
The Four Winds Invitational, which is scheduled for September 4-6 at Blackthorn Golf Club, will be held without spectators, organizers announced Monday.
The Four Winds Invitational is part of the Symetra Tour - Road to the LPGA.
“2020 marks the ninth year of the Four Winds Invitational and we couldn’t be more proud of the continued success of the tournament, and all of the great support it has received over the years from sponsors, players, volunteers and the community,” said Matthew Wesaw, Tribal Chairman of the Pokagon Band. “Not only has it become an important opportunity for the young ladies of the Symetra Tour, but also an important fundraising platform to help our long-term partner, Beacon Health System, purchase life-saving equipment for those in need. The decision to proceed without spectators is consistent with other Symetra Tour events, and we are very appreciative of the efforts by Mike Nichols, Chief Business Officer of the Symetra Tour, and our tournament organizers to accommodate our desire to reschedule the event due to COVID-19 and to protect the players and event staff.”
Proceeds from the invitational will be donated to Beacon Health System to help purchase Centrella Smart+ Beds for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Beacon Children’s Hospital.
The beds will help improve mobility and prevent pressure injuries.
