Could The Buick Open Possibly Return?
Warwick Hills in Grand Blanc is busy working to try to bring pro golf back to Flint. The last time the tour left the Flint area, it took almost a decade for it to come back. This time, we might not have to wait that long. Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club General Manager Rich Fairman says it could be back as early as next year.
“I don’t think it will be in the real distant future,” Fairman said. The 2009 Buick Open, won by Tiger Woods, was the last Buick Open before General Motors withdrew from the event because of its bankruptcy. There are a number of options out there, and Fairman thinks the Champions Tour might be the best bet for a future PGA Tour coming to town.
