A national golf champion will be coming to Grand Rapids.
Jack Nicklaus, who has won a record 18 professional major championship titles, will be the featured speaker at a West Michigan Sports Commission event, “An Evening with Jack Nicklaus,” scheduled for 5 p.m. June 23 at DeVos Place’s Steelcase Ballroom, 303 Monroe Ave. NW.
“Jack Nicklaus is a sports icon and legend who we are thrilled to welcome back to the Grand Rapids area. His many achievements now extend into philanthropy,” said Mike Guswiler, president of the West Michigan Sports Commission. “We hope that the larger event venue allows space not just for WMSC friends and golf enthusiasts, but for those who support his important causes that help everyone from sick children to U.S. veterans.”
