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

Results from Gleneagle and Brookside are now available.

Regular Division Summary: The big news was our second hole-in-one of the season by Ken Scott (details below). Perhaps the real winner was the course itself. Everyone who played this week will agree that the layout is challenging, but fair, and the condition is spectacular. If you have not played Gleneagle lately take advantage of the discount they offer our members.

Reserve Division Summary: The best score was on Wednesday by the team of Rich Smith and Terry Pepper with an excellent 65. The way these guys are playing we may have to consider filing a W-2 form. Mike Kline managed to win closest-to-pin on TWO holes on Wednesday. Thursday saw two teams tied for first in flight "A" with 67 and three teams tied for first in flight "B" with 69.

Congratulations to Ken Scott for his hole-in-one on hole #11 at Gleneagle. This was Ken's second life time hole-in-one and the second hole-in-one of the 2015 GLSGA season. Click on Ken's photo for a larger image.

Be aware that the intersection of Kraft Ave. and 84th St. is closed due to construction. Police have been issuing tickets for drivers ignoring the warnings. For those driving to Briarwood GC from Broadmoor Ave. take Kraft to west bound 76th. to either south bound Patterson Ave. or Hanna Lake Ave. to 92nd St. Click on image left for map.

Please check your scorecards before turning them in. We had two cards this week that failed to record a score on one of the holes. As we explained at the spring meeting, the score assigned to any hole with a blank score will be double the par of the hole.

Once again we have noticed a few incidents of slow play at some tournaments. When we have 100+ golfers on a course it only takes one group to backup multiple foursomes behind them. None of us want to turn a round of golf into a new career so remember one rule: ALWAYS KEEP UP WITH THE GROUP AHEAD. If you don’t see that group you are the problem! Play ready golf. Get to your ball, hit it and go. Here is something to think about: If you are in a foursome where every golfer shoots a score of 90 and each decides to cut just 5 seconds off the time it takes to hit each shot, how much time will they save in 18 holes? (5 seconds x 90 shots x 4 golfers). That’s 1800 seconds or 30 minutes! Try it next time you golf.
