NOW: Makers Trail gives a taste of Senior PGA Championship’s return to Benton Harbor

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Whirlpool is giving people a taste of its KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, which will return this spring after COVID forced its cancellation in 2020. 

“The Makers Trail 19TH hole is a facility we have on 17 green where we feature our local breweries, wineries, distilleries with a taste of Southwest Michigan,” said Brandon Haney, Championship Director for the 2022 KitchenAid Senior PGA. 

Come May 25th, one of golf’s biggest tournaments will be back in Benton Harbor.

Harbor Shores Golf Club will host the Senior PGA Championship for its fifth year, and while golf is at the forefront, it’s also a chance to introduce newcomers to  Southwest Michigan.

“We look forward to putting the global spotlight on Southwest Michigan and KitchenAid has been fantastic at connecting that aspect to golf.”

While Harbor Shores has only been around for 12 years, its developers had big aspirations for what this could do for Benton Harbor.

To once again host one of golf’s most important weeks – after a pandemic hiatus – feels just as sweet as their first year.

“To host five major championships here, that’s fantastic for a course that’s only been open for over a decade,” said Haney. 

Among the businesses that will make up the Makers Trail are Journeymen Distillery, Dablon Winery, Peat’s Cider Social and Round Barn Winery.

To attend, visitors will need to purchase an upgraded ticket at srpga.com
