Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association
The Grand Experiment Begins
For the first time in GLSGA history, and with cooperation of Brookside Golf Course, we played a nine-hole tournament format. With concern of the continuing threat of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we decided to reduce the number of golfers congregating together by dividing the tournament entries into two groups—one teeing off at 9:30 AM and the second groups teeing off at 12:00 PM. Both groups played the same nine holes and scores were combined to determine standings in each flight. Another first, with only two par 3s, we turned closest-to-pin into a team event. The partner of the closest winner also shared in the prize.
Golfers found Brookside more challenging than expected. Only two teams were under par on Wednesday. However, six teams accomplished a sub-par round on Thursday including an excellent 31 by Greg Madura and John Pellerito. The results from the tournament at Brookside are now available..
Members have been asking when we might return to normal competition. That will depend on the continuing evaluation of the coronavirus, both in the state of Michigan and in Kent County. GLSGA members can help us by continuing to wear a mask and practice distancing at each tournament.
If you entered any of the following tournaments, please check the links below, or to the right, to find your assigned tee time. These times are available for Western Greens (July 15/16) and Broadmoor (July 22/23).
At each tournament site please adhere to the following rules:
1. If you feel sick on, or before, tournament day STAY HOME.
2. Be at the course by 9:00 AM for the 9:30 AM tee time.
3. Be at the course by 11:30 AM for the 12:00 PM tee time.
4. Wear a mask while around the check-in and the clubhouse areas.
5. When checking in let us know if you are comfortable riding in a cart with your partner or prefer an individual cart.
6. Try to stay at least six feet apart from other golfers (with possible exception of your partner).
Please help us get the word out. Contact your partners and friends in case they do not, or cannot, access the website.
