“We will continue to work with state and local health officials to create a safe and enjoyable experience for our fans,” reads a statement from a spokesman Wednesday.
State of Michigan health officials announced Tuesday large outdoor events -- festivals, fairs and golf tournaments -- will now be allowed to exceed the current limit of 1,000 people as long as organizers create and post a safety plan that follows Michigan Department of Health and Humans Services (MDHHS) guidance.
The Rocket Mortgage Classic was held for a second year in July 2020 at the Detroit Golf Club, but no fans were allowed on the course due to the pandemic.
