Triple Alliance Open Course Change

Due to the HORRIBLE course conditions at Holly Woods this event is being moved to Memorial Park in Frankenmuth. Please do not park at the dog park parking lot and enter the park off Park Street off of Genesee Street. There is plenty of parking and you will not have to walk up the big hill to get to me. I will be set up near the Basket #7.



If you have already registered and this is an issue for you, please let me know. I can refund your team with no issues.



Hope to see many more of you there. The course is in great shape. The weather is supposed to be 50 and sunny....
