Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association
Perhaps you though a golf course had to be long to be difficult. Wrong! The Falls at Barber Creek is around 5400 yards from the white tees and 4300 yards from the red tees but judging from the scores this week it might as well have been 7000 yards. There were only eleven sub-80 scores out of 235 rounds played—that’s less than 5%. Of course, 30 mph sustained wind, with gusts near 50 mph, on Thursday did not help. Despite the scores, our members reported loving the course. Anyone who has not yet played The Falls should book a tee time—they do offer GLSGA members a discount. The results from the Falls at Barber Creek are now available.
Tournaments Continue Filling Fast!
Entry applications for 2017 tournaments continue pouring in. With that, some tournaments are already full and entries are closed. Before sending in an entry it is always a good idea to check the list to the right to be sure the tournament(s) you are interested in playing are not full.
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.
