By Ben Sanders - H-P, Thurs., May 20, 2010
BENTON HARBOR - Jack Nicklaus will be on hand for the Aug. 10 grand opening of The Golf Club at Harbor Shores. And three famous friends will join him.
[They are bought and paid for by Whirlpool.]
Nicklaus, who designed the course, will play with golfing greats Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Johnny Miller in the Harbor Shores Champions for Change Golf Challenge.
It will mark the first time the foursome have played together competitively.
The day will begin with the foursome giving a golf clinic at 9:30 a.m. The golf challenge will begin at 10:30 a.m. in an 18-hole "scramble skins" format, a type of match play.
[Protesters will be there at 10am to begin the golf challenge.]
The golfers, who have won a combined 199 PGA Tour events and 35 major tournaments, at 7:30 p.m. will participate in An Evening for Champions, a roundtable discussion at Lake Michigan College's Mendel Center,
"I consider Arnold, Tom and Johnny among my closest friends in golf, so I not only look forward to getting together with them again but also having them with me as we celebrate the opening of The Golf Club at Harbor Shores," Nicklaus said in a news release. "The Harbor Shores Champions for Change event is a great opportunity to highlight how golf is being used as a vehicle for social and economic revitalization, particularly in the Benton Harbor community."
[We wonder if Arnold, Tom, and John are part of JNicklaus and Whirlpool stealing land from the people of BHarbor. The rich steal from the poor.]
A limited number of tickets for the event are available at www.HarborShoresChampions.com. The cost is $50 for the clinic and golf challenge...
[What kind of person would buy a ticket to consort with thieves?]
"We are truly honored to have four golf legends on board to celebrate the opening of this world-class resort golf venue and help us spark revitalization efforts throughout the community," Harbor Shores Managing Director Mark Hesemann said in a news release.
[They have no intention of revitalizing the community. None whatsoever. These are empty words to deceive people. They have been propagandized into thinking this is a good project - some still may believe it, likely most don't.]
Harbor Shores Marketing Director Ron Eng said discussions have taken place with CBS about filming the event, which could be aired before the 2011 Masters.
All 18 holes of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course are scheduled to open to the public by July 1.
[Please make sure to mark your calendar for the mass demonstration, August 10, 10am.]
