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

Summer returns! For all those golfers wanting warm (read HOT) weather, you got it. Here is an interesting fact—on Thursday it was cooler in Death Valley California than it was in Grand Rapids. However, we should be thankful for this record setting stretch of weather considering that in past years we have played in cool, damp and windy conditions this late in the season. The other thing to be thankful for is having one of the best municipally owned golf courses right here in our area. Once again we had the pleasure of playing the tough, but fair, and beautifully maintained L. E. Kaufman Golf Course. What about the results? They are now available from L.E. Kaufman.

Repeating Comments on Slow Play

We don’t have a ranger on the course so we must “self-police” ourselves. If your group falls behind, pick up your balls, record a double par on the hole, and drive to the next tee. Do that on as many holes as it takes to catch the group ahead. If you are playing with a twosome that refuses to speed up just leave them behind. If you are behind a slow group tell them you are playing through, don’t ask them. Just remember, one slow group can spoil the enjoyment for every group behind them.
