Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association
Our second visit to L.E. Kaufman demonstrated once again why the course is considered one of the best public facilities in Michigan. Designed by noted course architect Bruce W. Matthews, it opened for play in 1965.
Our flight “C” and “D” members played the course at 5202 yards from the green tees. This year we used the “hybrid” tees found on L.E. Kaufman’s scorecard for flight “A” and “B” members. This setup incorporates a mixture of white and green tees for a total distance of 5759 yards as opposed to 6328 yards from all white tees. Over the course of two days a total of 199 golfers competed. The week’s low score in flight “A” was a 63 by Ken Nyenhuis and Bruce Nyenhuis on Thursday. In flight “B” the low score was 70 by Chris Poterack and Rick Bishop also on Thursday. Keeping up Thursday's dominance, Dwight Anderson and Steve Ledbetter posted the low score in flight “C” with a 73. However, Mike O'Malley and Dan Twardowski salvaged the pride of the Wednesday golfers with the week’s low score of 78 in flight “D”. The results with all scores are now available from L.E. Kaufman.
Farwell 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.
