  1. What's new in this club
  2. Played WestWynd yesterday. Rough was “ROUGH” snd greens in great condition. They were air orating the tee boxes but otherwise great.

  4. I realize it is nearing the end of leagues this year but thought we could start a thread where leagues could look for players and player look for leagues. I hope that is OK with all. I'll get it started. My league is at Sylvan Glen in Troy, MI and we expect there be be a few openings in Spring 2021. We play 9 hoes @ 3pm on Tuesday afternoon. Two flights with skins for both flights. It is not a big money league but a good group of guys. If anyone is interest please message me.
  5. That is a beautiful course. Originally it was to be private, a 2nd course for Wyngate, but they changed that before it opened. Some of the cart paths of the private course cross the public course. I was told the owner found out how much it would cost to lay the paving stones for the cart paths so he just went out and bought the paving company instead of paying them to do it. It is a real 1st class public course.
  6. I played Westwynd again today. It rates right up there in my opinion with Shepherd's Hollow. We used the Tee Time Golf Pass book and played for $30. Afterward they had a golfer's luncheon special of a 1/2 slab of ribs and french fries for $7.95. People, this is a can't miss course.
  7. Michigan Golf Journal Michigan Golf Journal is a magazine for Golfaholics in Michigan providing golf tips, travel and news from around the state and country.
  8. 8/1 finish: I believe that Furyk will make a run tomorrow and win. Quigley was having trouble with his driver the last few holes. Tomorrow is another day but they are predicting rain with a flash flood watch tonight. The course will play longer but they should be able to target the pins. I expect the scores to be lower than last year when Jerry Kelly won at -16.
  9. Since we can't actually visit the tournament, here's the leaders as of 7/31/20. Tommy Armour III was an alternate.
  10. That looks like a heck of a deal. I've not heard of it. It would be a 3 hour drive for me but someday I'd like to play it.
  11. If you're looking for a deal Group Golfer has Manistee Golf & Country Club rounds available for $20 (including cart) - this is about 30 minutes south of Arcadia Bluffs, it is also right on Lake Michigan.

  13. Denny - I finally got around to checking my group golfer account for the first time since April, and they have extended my vouchers from early May to November 1. Which makes it on me to use them - I'm actually pretty excited having looked them up, it is a little bit like free golf (since I had kind of written this off )

  15. That Hunters Ridge course is only 40 minutes away from by sisters place in Northfield Twp.

  17. Clubs & bag are in the garage, but it looks kind of like this - it was spiff at a charity scramble last year or the year before. I usually don't keep that stuff, but this turned out to be a great thing to have in the year of the COVID
  18. So far all of the courses I've played with friends have had a plastic barrier between the golfers. I'm not comfortable riding w/o it. I have a 3 wheel trolley and I'm not afraid to use it! I have hand sanitizer in my bag but I have forgotten to use it. I'm playing Thursday, I'll make a note. pics please...
  19. I've only been out a few times, but I've walked and really enjoyed it. Of course I had to take a bunch of unnecessary items out of my bag to make it more manageable. Agree with the hand sanitizer comment - I have a travel size that has a carabiner clip, so I can us it after every hole if I start to OCD; I do wish ball washers were available, but that will have to wait
  20. News | GAM.org I don't think it is any safer now to ride in a cart with a stranger, or even a non-household friend. I think a decision was made that there are hospital beds open, health workers have PPE and if we get sick, they can take care of us. It is up to each individual to decide how much risk they are willing to take. Stop playing golf? Yes, that removes the exposure. But if we are going to play, then what level of risk are you willing to take? Personally, I am not going to take a chance that my cart mate, whether I know them or not, does not have COVID-19 but are currently asymptomatic. I will walk or where available, take a single cart (and pay a fee if needed). I am less concerned with reaching into a hole or handling a rake or flagstick. Hand sanitizer fixes that. Nothing fixes the fact that I will inhale some of my cart mate's expelled water vapor.

  22. Today Governor Whitmer allowed public golf courses to be open with conditions. I've already received notices from a couple courses stating they were open for business. Golf carts are not allowed, you will have to walk. If the course hasn't set up protection for the flagstick, do your best to be safe. Enjoy
  23. I contacted Group Golfer. They posted a Corona virus notice on their site Group Golfer Coronavirus message If you purchased Tee Time golf Pass, this was their response: Dear Dennis, We understand this is a difficult situation for all of us; However, we are not giving refunds. We have your email address should we need to contact you in the future. We appreciate your business and hope golf season will return to normal soon.
