Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

The weather sure changed this week! Cool (perhaps cold) and windy. This was significantly different than the weather we have been experiencing most of this season. I wonder if it has anything to do with events at Grand Haven and Pilgrim’s Run? You may remember what it was like in April when we also played these two courses. But we are a hardy bunch—a total of 430 golfers played these two days.

Reserve Division Summary: 123 golfers played Pilgrim’s Run on Wednesday. That is the highest number of any single day this season. Three teams managed to shoot scores in the 60s on Wednesday which is one more than the number of sub 70s on Thursday. However, one of those scores on Thursday was a remarkable 60 by the team of Russ Molag and Ed Miller. The second best score of the two days was five strokes higher.

Regular Division Summary: Wow! Does Grand Haven seem to play long these days. Or maybe it’s because we are shorter (before you get the wrong idea, I’m talking about the distance we hit a golf ball). As always the course was in excellent condition and the staff was very helpful. Only three teams managed to shoot scores in the 60s—all on Wednesday. The team of Bill Simkins and Pete Chiaramonte shot the low score of the week with a fine 67.

The results from both Pilgrim’s Run and Grand Haven are now available.
