Warwick Hills and the Buick Open
The Buick Open golf tournament began in 1958 at the Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club. Located in Grand Blanc, 50,000 fans came to see Billy Casper win the $52.000 purse. In 2009, the last year it was played here, the purse was over five million dollars. You will recognize so many winners from the Buick Open Champions Circle: Julius Boros, Tom Weiskopf, Hale Irwin, Lanny Wadkins, Ben Crenshaw, Fred Couples, Vijay Singh and Tiger Woods are just a few. The grounds of this private golf course are beautifully maintained.
