Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

The 2020 GLSGA Season -- One Week Remaining!

I must begin my comments on this week’s tournament by thanking Yankee Springs for filling an unexpected hole in our schedule on very short notice. On top of that, we found the course in excellent condition and the new amenities around the clubhouse are real nice.

For the first time in several years, along with the gold nine, we played the white nine. In recent years we had been using the red nine / golf nine combination. Of the two, I think everyone will agree that the white nine is the more interesting nine—and possibly more difficult. Despite any course difficulty, real or perceived, we had many good scores. The low score of the week was a 63 (-9) by Curt Schram and Mike Zbojniewicz on Thursday. Perhaps the more surprising score was an even par 72 by Dan Tebo and Ron L Bailey in flight “D” on Wednesday. That was good for an 8-stroke win!

The results from both Yankee Springs are now available.

At all tournament sites please adhere to the following rules:
   1. If you feel sick on, or before, tournament day STAY HOME.
   2. Wear a mask while around the check-in and the clubhouse areas.
   3. Try to stay at least six feet apart from other golfers.
   4. Adhere to any additional rules required by the golf course.

PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE!

If you must cancel playing in a tournament let us know by Sunday before the event. We call the golf courses on Monday with a count of the number of golfers they can expect and we begin working on the lineup sheet, check-in listings and scorecards. Notifying us later than Sunday is not fair to the courses and causes us extra work to rearrange pairings, starting hole assignments and perhaps the need to reprint updated scorecards.
