SOUTH BEND — The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and its Four Winds Casinos are pleased to announce that the 2018 Four Winds Invitational will be held from Friday, June 8 through Sunday, June 10 at Blackthorn Golf Club in South Bend.

The seventh annual tournament will feature a field of professional women golfers from around the world competing on the Symetra Tour — Road to the LPGA. The 2018 tournament will include 144 golfers who will be playing for a $150,000 purse.

“We are proud to bring back the Four Winds Invitational to South Bend for the seventh straight year,” said John P. Warren, Chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians. “We’ve watched as this event has grown in popularity for the players, and for the community. Through this growth, we’ve been able to donate significant proceeds for valuable, lifesaving equipment at Beacon Children’s Hospital.”

In the past six years of the Four Winds Invitational, more than $430,000 in tournament proceeds have been donated to Beacon Children’s Hospital. Additionally, more than $1 million in prize money has been awarded to athletes playing in the tournament. 50 golfers who competed in South Bend have graduated from the Symetra Tour and moved on to the LPGA Tour, including 2015 tournament winner and Major Champion Brooke Henderson and 2016 winner Jackie Stoelting.
