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

The weather this year at the Legacy at Hastings was without doubt the best three consecutive days we have ever experienced there. The turnout of golfers was also excellent with a total of 277 over the three days. There were a few interesting things from the Legacy. Several members won prize money for the first time this year. It’s amazing that they had to wait to the last event of the year to win money. While these individuals waited to win money, the GLSGA waited until the second to last tournament of the year to have our first hole-in-one. On Wednesday, Charlie Corder had a perfect shot on the difficult hole #18 par three. Congratulations Charlie! Our holes-in-one are being sponsored in memory of Joe Jakeway. In 2018, illness prevented Joe from playing golf. He donated his entry fees that year to be used as we saw fit. The board decided that the money be used toward the hole-in-one award. Since we only had one this year, we will continue sponsorship in Joe’s name next year. The results from the Legacy at Hastings are now available.

Next year the tournament at the Legacy at Hastings is moving to the last week of August and the first week of September. One of the weeks will be for the regular division and the other for the reserve division. These dates will replace the Deer Run events.

Farewell to Deer Run, a Sad Ending

After 30+ years we have played our last tournament at Deer Run. Personnel at the course have always welcomed our members and treated us with respect. The golfing season is not yet complete so if you get the chance, stop by Deer Run and play one final round. If you do, please let long time course manager Toni Versluys know how much her patience with us old guys have meant to the GLSGA and wish her all the best in the future. We will have news on a replacement for our two dates at Deer Run soon.
