The Great Lakes Senior Golf Association, centered in the greater Grand Rapids, MI area, is made up of golfers

age 50 and over. We currently have over 700 members and conduct approximately 60 tournaments each year.

Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

We learned something this week at Cedar Chase. The guys that play on Wednesday are smarter than those that play on Tuesday or Thursday. How do we know? They made no math errors. We learned something else. Curt Schram and Mike Zbojniewicz make the rest of us look like hackers. They shot the low round of the week with an amazing 61. Maybe it's time to start a new flight just for them. One other comment. On Thursday, Denny Hodge’s tee shot on hole #14 was 1 foot from the hole. That is the closest to the pin on that difficult par 3 in several years. Complete results from Cedar Chase are now available.

Note: Some of our members reported that Orchard Hills was not honoring their previously promised discount. With an assist from Bill Spence and Bill Leatherman, that has been resolved. The course once again will provide members with a discount. Always remember to show your membership card when requesting a discount at any of our participating courses.

We have a new course offering our members a discount to play: The Falls at Barber Creek. You can find their offer, and those from other courses, on the Special Promotions flyer.

Our tournaments are filled on a first come, first serve basis. We already have numerous tournaments that are full meaning that entry to those are closed. As soon as we know a tournament is full we post that fact on both the home page of the website (see list to right) and also on the Upcoming Events page.

Please note: Due to a planned aeration of the greens at Pilgrim's Run the last week of September we have modified the schedule in the Regular Division. The event at Pilgrim's Run will now be played on Wednesday, September 21 and Thursday, September 22. As a result, the event at Orchard Hills will be played on Wednesday, September 28 and Thursday, September 29. If you have signed up for either of these events please modify your calendar.

Using the Event Entry Forms: As you are aware, we use a single page event entry form that contains check boxes for all 2016 tournaments, and sections for the annual banquet and 2017 membership fee. After filling out the form, submit with payment, the ENTIRE application. DO NOT CUT UP THE FORM! If you need additional forms they are available on the website and we will have copies at all of our events.
