Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

That's a Wrap! The 2021 Season is Over.

A familiar quote is "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it." Another often used quote is "In like a lion, out like a lamb." Well, let's talk about the weather (but not do anything about it). We know that the second quote refers to the month of March, but could it also apply to the GLSGA season? For a reminder of how our season began on April 21 and 22 click here. Now compare that to the weather last week. Seems like that lion-lamb thing to me!

Looking at the scores from the two courses we played it is obvious that the Mines is more difficult than Gleneagle. In two days at the Mines only seven scores were below 70. By comparison, at Gleneagle a score below 70 was not guaranteed to be a prize wining score. For further evidence, I'll let you can compare the flight averages at each course. For the week the low team score at the Mines was 63 by Bruce and Ken Nyenhuis. The low score at Gleneagle was a 61 by Mike Oshinski and Larry Melville.

The results from the The Mines and Gleneagle are now available.

What's coming up?

The prize money / refund checks will be mailed around the end of October (if you have moved be sure we know the new address). Invitations for new members will be mailed out in mid-November. We expect at least 70 invitations will be sent. In December we will post the 2022 tournament schedule. Entry forms for the 2022 season will be mailed, and at the same time available on the website, in early February.

Here is a suggestion. When posted, use the 2022 schedule to discuss and decide what tournaments you and your buddies will play. Have one member of your pairing, foursome or entire group designated to fill out an entry, when available, for everyone and send it in with FULL payment for all.

What Happened to Paul Foguth?

Numerous members have been asking what happened to Paul. For years he was a constant presence at all our tournaments, both regular and reserve divisions. Until just recently we had no answer to the question. We knew that his house in Grandville was sold earlier this year but numerous attempts to reach him via email went unanswered. There were a couple of cryptic phones calls that just added to the mystery. A few weeks ago, we learned that Paul’s wife passed away. At that time his son, Bob, contacted the church Paul and his wife attended with the information that Paul was in assisted living in Arizona suffering from dementia. If you would like to send a card it can be addresses to Paul Foguth, c/o Bob Foguth, 3323 N 153rd Dr, Goodyear, AZ 85395

Frequently Asked Questions

This year we did not have a membership meeting prior to the beginning of the season. In an attempt to answer questions that are covered at such a meeting, we have posted a list of frequently asked questions (click here). As additional questions are received from our members they will be added to the list. More information can be found in our rules of play (click here).
