As always, this is a single elimination, 9 hole match play event. We will schedule a minimum of two matches however for those knocked out in Round 1.

Reports from the weekend: Music blaring from the parking lots that could be heard through the park. Breaking glass bottles on picnic tables. ... more

We are aware that the course is currently unplayable for this weekends tournament. However, our non-refundable fees have been paid to run the event there as well as we would prefer to not move the event unless we have to, with the hopes of reducing any confusion that moving the event would cause.

With that being said, the event WILL 100% take place albeit it may not be at Goldenrod. An assessment of the course will be made in a few and a final determination will be made if the event can be played there. We will post the determination of this everywhere that we can.

Course Development Fund

Our Board of Directors have made the decision to create an course development fund as we see a need for more courses in our area. The way that we have decided to fund this endevour, is to collect $1 from every player at our leagues this year, in order to play. We will easily have enough money to purchase 18 baskets by seasons end. We hope that having money in hand for all of the baskets, it will lead to us finding a home for a new course. This is not an optional $1, it is mandatory and we believe that is it a small enough fee that it should not impact anyone too greatly.

It is not an impossible amount of money by any means but you would need to know what your goal is I am going to assume. There is other land than the park. Other schools in MI have courses on them. I would recommend investigating land that is owned by the schools in the area

9/20 Goldenrod Start Time 5:00p.m.

Sunset is at 7:34 tonight and it will get shorter and shorter each week from her on out.

Also, the park rules state that the rangers close the park at sunset. Sometimes they do it right at sunset, sometimes later but we have also seen them come early so 2 1/2 hrs should be just enough time to play, do payouts and get out of dodge before the man comes.

Dangerous Weather Rule Amendment

Ok, after thinking about it a little more than we did initially it was decided to make an amendment to to the League Rules, which are in affect for both Goldenrod and Holly.

Goldenrod Detour on Irish in between Court and Davison Rds.

Just a heads up.... They are finally fixing the railroad crossing on Irish in between Court and Davison Rd! It is closed down until they have it fixed which shouldn't be more than a week or two. Until it is reopened you will have to detour around it. Keep this in mind when planning travel time for league or other rounds out there. The detour is not bad at all. It might add 5minutes at the most. *If coming from the east on 69 get off at M-15, go north and then left on either Davison, R ... more
