Cooking and golf combine forces at Harbor Shores

Published 8:40pm Monday, May 14, 2012

BENTON HARBOR — Cooking and golf may seem like an odd couple, but the folks at KitchenAid, the presenting sponsor of the Senior PGA Championship at The Golf Club at Harbor Shores, will be looking to change all that.

KitchenAid, the official home appliance brand of the PGA of America, will engage golf and culinary fans in the KitchenAid Fairway Club, the KitchenAid Gallery on 16, and the KitchenAid Gallery on 10 at Harbor Shores during Championship Week (May 22-27).

Located adjacent to the No. 1 tee, the KitchenAid Fairway Club will give championship attendees the opportunity to see live cooking demonstrations from celebrity and local chefs, touch and feel KitchenAid products, have their picture taken with the Alfred S. Bourne Championship Trophy and compete in a daily closest-to-the-pin competition on a golf simulator of Harbor Shores Hole No. 7 to benefit Cook for the Cure, KitchenAid’s partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The KitchenAid Gallery on 16, located off the No. 16 fairway, will feature the latest and greatest in home appliances along with product demonstrations.

The KitchenAid Gallery on 10, located near the No. 10 green, will feature additional KitchenAid appliances and products.
