Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

All June Tournaments Canceled

Due to the continuing concern for the COVID-19 coronavirus, and the health of our members, we have decided to cancel all scheduled tournaments in the month of June. In the Regular division that will be Cedar Chase (June 2/3/4) and Broadmoor (June 17/18). The Reserve division will include Yankee Springs (June 10/11) and Western Greens (June 24/25). With some luck, we may be able to get back to golf in July.

You may wonder about the criteria we are using to make these decisions. First and foremost is concern for the health and safety of our members. As stated earlier, our group is at highest risk for complications from the virus. With that concern in mind we have looked for guidance in our decision making. The Michigan section of the PGA as well as the Michigan Golf Course Association and the Golf Association of Michigan have all endorsed the Back2Golf plan which was developed by a consortium of national golf associations along with advice from medical experts. We are relying on Bask2Golf’s three phase plan to help us in making our decisions. You can find a link to the Back2Golf plan in the right-hand column of this page. You should note that we are currently in Phase 1 of the plan which limits gatherings to groups of 10 or less with no “league play” allowed. If the Back2Golf plan moves to Phase 2 (limiting gatherings to less than 50) we may be able to play tournaments with a modified format. Phase 3 would allow us to return to near normal.
We will provide a credit to our members for all canceled tournaments. That includes any tournament an individual chooses not to play. These credits can be used for entry into a future tournament or they will be included as a refund at season’s end.
Please help us get the word out. Contact your partners and friends in case they do not, or cannot, access the website.
