BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) The FireKeepers Casino Hotel Championship was held June 5 through 7, and featured an array of professional women golfers from around the world. Each of the ladies were competing for a chance to win one of ten spots on the LPGA Tour.

Community members from all over West Michigan stepped out to see the pros drive it to the green and benefit S.A.F.E. Place, a shelter dedicated to victims of domestic violence.

There’s a ton of exciting entertainment happening this summer at FireKeepers Casino Hotel. The Father’s Day Hot Seat Golf Giveaways happens on Sunday, June 21. Tickets are still available for the hilarious Jeff Foxworthy, who will take the stage on Friday, August 28. For more information on summer fun, visit
