Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

One More Week, One More Great Course

This week at North Kent we played the first 2-person team aggregate tournament of the 2024 season. This format is like two individual medal play tournaments in one. Both teammates play their own ball and then calculate their net score by subtracting their handicap. The total net score of the teammates is the team score. Unlike our 2-person bestball tournaments, which limit the handicap difference between the teammates to 10-strokes, both teammates are allowed to use their full handicap.

The week was a tale of two days. Not that the scores were all that different. It was that the number of golfers each day was very different. On Wednesday there were only 76 players while on Thursday we had 112 players. Looking ahead at a few upcoming tournaments this discrepancy in the number of players appears to be an anomaly.

How did you do? The results from the North Kent are now available.

Multiple Tournaments Still Open

All open tournaments are now available to every GLSGA member regardless of division. Click here for more information. Any date highlighted in green is open for additional entries. This list will be updated so be sure to check the date on the top of the page.

If you entered a tournament in your division at a favorite golf course and that course still has an opening in the other division, you are now free to play in that division. You are also free to play both days at any tournament. If you need additional entry forms you can find links to both the regular division and the reserve division from the SCHEDULES/FORMS drop down menu above.

Do You Need a Partner?

For those needing a partner be sure to write “need a partner” on the entry form. As we receive the entry forms we will be updating the Need a Partner page. If you are looking for someone to play with, in one or more events, you should check the list for your division. The partner search lists the golfers name, contact information, flight and the tournaments / days needing a partner. To get your information posted follow the instructions in the right-hand column of the Need a Partner page.
