One couldn’t mention Grand Blanc without mentioning golf. Home to many top notch public and private courses, Grand Blanc is one of the premier destinations for golfing in the area. Situated just south of the city limits, Warwick Hills Country Club was host to the annual Buick Open Golf Tournament, the first corporate sponsored PGA tour and the only PGA tour event held in the State of Michigan. After its creation in 1958, the Buick Open became one of the PGA Tour's most prestigious events. The final tournament was won by Tiger Woods in 2009.
Priding itself on a warm small town atmosphere and genuine friendliness, Grand Blanc is an excellent community to work and live.
