Welcome to the Great Lakes Senior Golf Association

Fall Arrived and We Noticed!

The Autumnal Equinox, which marks the end of summer, occurred Wednesday afternoon and we certainly noticed a change in the weather. That day we had overcast skies with temperatures in the mid-50s. What about Thursday? A complete washout--cold, raining and no golf. L.E. Kaufman golf course was unplayable. That brings up a point. What happens when golf is canceled? We have two simple rules. First, always assume we will play. Second, when in doubt call the golf course. We have workers at a course by 8:00 AM on tournament day and we evaluate conditions at that time. Since we do not have access to our website or bulk email system while at the course we cannot use those methods to contact members. Therefore, as stated above, when in doubt call the golf course. All members that paid for a canceled tournament will receive a credit to their account.

The Wednesday results from LE Kaufman will be posted by Sunday.

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). A detailed explanation of our handicap system can be found  by clicking here.

Did you get your spring letter? If not, perhaps you did not inform us of your current address. If you have moved recently, or have a winter address, please let us know where we should mail items. If you have alternate addresses for the prize money checks and /or the spring letter we should know.
