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

I know we can be described as grown men but on Wednesday it was more like men groaning. While we continued the usual decision to have flights “C” and “D” use the forward tees, we decided to have flights ”A” and “B” play the white tees. Geez, you would have thought we asked those guys to play a USGA Open type setup. Because of all the complaints, on Thursday we moved some of the white tees forward reducing the total course length about 350 yards. So, what difference did it make? Not much! The average score in flight “B” was nearly identical both days. For flight “A”, Thursday’s average was less than one stroke lower than Wednesday’s. Incidentally, we used the same tee locations both days for flights “C” and “D”. We will continue trying to choose tee locations that are fair for all, but always remember one of the original rules of golf, "Play the course as you find it."

The results from Briarwood are now available.

We Can Use Your Help

If you need to cancel play in one of our events we would appreciate knowing by the Sunday prior to the tournament. On Monday we notify our courses of the player count and begin working on the scorecards and tournament pairings. Having an accurate count helps our courses know how many golfers to expect and saves us time in preparation for the tournament.
