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

Our first team aggregate tournament at the Links at Bowen Lake was a success. We had no problems and our members liked the format. We had no idea what the scores would be but now we know. On Wednesday, a total of 52 teams had an average score of 140.65. On Thursday, 53 teams averaged 140.32. Those averages are higher than the average scores we see in our best ball tournaments. The average scores by flight did not differ very much from the overall average. The lowest flight average was 137.73 and the highest was 144.33. Since I suspect our members will be interested in seeing what the results of this new format look like, they were posted two days early this week.

Our First Hole-in-One of 2017!

Congratulations to Ramon Duran for his perfect shot on Wednesday, June 21 on hole #12 at the Links at Bowen Lake. Click here for a lager photograph of Ramon.

New team competition format for 2017

If you look at the 2017 schedules you will notice that we are introducing a new team competition format in 2017. It's called a 2-man Team Aggregate. Here's how it works. Both teammates play their own ball, total their actual 18 hole score, subtract their individual handicap for an 18 hole net score. The teammates then add their net scores together for an aggregate team score.
