Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

Despite the weather predictions early in the week, we managed to complete two days of play in the 2018 DeBok Memorial Championship. For the third straight year we have a new actual score champion. Bruce Nyenhuis showed great consistency posting two consecutive sores of 71 for a total of 142. Coincidentally, that score is the third straight year the winning score was 142. This year’s low handicap champion is Ken Little. Ken posted net scores of 56 and 59 for a total of 115. Of special note is our third hole-in-one this season by Mike O’Dell. His perfect shot came on the difficult hole #16 at Briarwood. Congratulations to Bruce, Ken and Mike.

The flight winners this year were Gary Switzer and Al Shafer, both with 126 in flight “A”, Skip Leonard at 124 in flight “B”, Larry Spetoskey at 117 in flight “C” and Ken Little in flight “D”.

You can now review all the results from this year's DeBok Championship.

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.

Former board member JD Burton's wish was that family and friends would come together to tell stories and remember the person and friend that we all knew. A wake in J.D.'s honor will be held from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM on Saturday, September 15 at Brann's, 4157 Division Ave S, Wyoming, MI.
