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

Reserve Division Summary: One day of excellent weather, one day dodging the rain (it missed us) and several outstanding scores. On Wednesday, Ron Stratton shot a round of 80 (net 54) to lead the way. On Thursday, Ed Pruetz's net 53 (actual 89) was the low score. An additional highlight that day was Charlie Corder shooting his age with an excellent actual score of 79 (yes, Charlie is older than that). The complete results from Western Greens are now available.

Congratulations to Ken Scott for his hole-in-one on hole #11 at Gleneagle. This was Ken's second life time hole-in-one and the second hole-in-one of the 2015 GLSGA season. Click on Ken's photo for a larger image.

For all golfers planning to play Gleneagle GC on July 1 or July 2, be aware that the course does not sell alcoholic beverages. However, golfers are allowed to bring a cooler containing their beverage of choice.

Once again we have noticed a few incidents of slow play at some tournaments. When we have 100+ golfers on a course it only takes one group to backup multiple foursomes behind them. None of us want to turn a round of golf into a new career so remember one rule: ALWAYS KEEP UP WITH THE GROUP AHEAD. If you don’t see that group you are the problem! Play ready golf. Get to your ball, hit it and go. Here is something to think about: If you are in a foursome where every golfer shoots a score of 90 and each decides to cut just 5 seconds off the time it takes to hit each shot, how much time will they save in 18 holes? (5 seconds x 90 shots x 4 golfers). That’s 1800 seconds or 30 minutes! Try it next time you golf.

Ever wonder what the Board Members look like?  Well, now you have a chance--but proceed with caution. None of these guys look like male models. Select the Board Members link from the INFORMATION drop down menu above.
