Michigan Amateur Championship

In 1906, the first Michigan Amateur Championship was contested at Kent Country Club in Grand Rapids. Since that inaugural event, the prestigious Michigan Amateur Championship has been contested annually 105 times – only suspending play for two years during World War I & four years during World War II.

Throughout the 105 championships, only 30 golf clubs have had the honor of hosting the state championship & no one has hosted the Michigan Amateur Championship more than Belvedere Golf Club. Belvedere has hosted the state championship 40 times and will host its 41st championship in 2025 - Belvedere's centennial year celebration.
