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

Cedar Chase – Version #1

This week the reserve division had the opportunity to play Cedar Chase golf club. This coming week the regular division will have its opportunity at the same course. It will be fun to see which division will be able to best “conquer” one of the most challenging courses we play.

Here is the challenge for the regular division: The low score this week was an impressive 64 (8 under par) by Kent Coon and Bob Klingbeil. Thirteen of the week's 124 scores were sub-par (10.5 %) and only eight of the scores submitted contained an error on the card (6.5 %). One of those errors was due to a team failing to record a score on all 18 holes.

The results from Cedar Chase are now available.

Note that there may be a delay posting the regular division results from Cedar Case next week. I am scheduled for surgery on June 8 and will post the results as soon as I can.

Numerous Tournaments Still Open

We have numerous tournaments that are still open for additional golfers. All open tournaments are now available to members of BOTH divisions. Additionally, if you have signed up for one day at a course and the opposite day is open, you will be able to play the course the second day. Entry forms for both divisions can be found by clicking here.

Any tournament that is not listed as closed (to the right and on the entry form) is still accepting entries. Fill out an entry for any tournament(s) you want and mail, with payment, to the PO Box on the entry. Remember, due to demand, some of these open tournaments may still close. As always, tournaments are filled in the order the entries are received.

This Season Plan To Be At The Course by 8:45 AM

We continue to plan on using 9:30 AM "shotgun" starts. However, this year we hope to be on the course and ready to tee off by that time. That requires moving up the time golfer’s check-in and our announcements so we can leave the clubhouse for the course by 9:20 AM. We hope you will help us achieve this new timetable.

Do You Need a Partner?

For those needing a partner be sure to write “need a partner” on the entry form. As we receive the entry forms we will be updating the Need a Partner page. If you are looking for someone to play with, in one or more events, you should check the list for your division. The partner search lists the golfers name, contact information, flight and the tournaments / days needing a partner. To get your information posted follow the instructions in the right-hand column of the Need a Partner page.

Frequently Asked Questions

In an attempt to answer questions covered at the Spring Meeting for those unable to attend, we have posted a list of frequently asked questions (click here). As additional questions are received from our members they will be added to the list. More information can be found in our rules of play (click here). A detailed explanation of our handicap system can be found  by clicking here.

If you have a new address, or have a winter address, please let us know where we should mail items. If you have alternate addresses for the prize money checks and /or the spring letter please let us know.
